Historic Whitney-on-Wye single track Toll Bridge dates back to 1779. One of just a few remaining in England. Two earlier bridges were washed away by the strong river currents and a stone and timber construction was built in 1797.Open 365 days a year with parking and riverside picnic area. Come and fish, canoe, picnic or camp with us. Perfect setting for camping part way through your canoe trip - on the banks of the River Wye at Whitney Toll Bridge HR3 6EW. Very quiet and private small campsite with fire pit, direct canoe launch/land and parking. Four toilets available (clean and fully stocked with soap and loo rolls etc) plus clean drinking water shower tap (sorry no private showers). Breakfast and BBQs can be arranged - fully licensed so you can enjoy a chilled beer too.

I regularly use this bridge on my travels to Hay-on-Wye. I do a lot of caring in the community and travel from Hereford to Hay at least 2-3 times a week and use the bridge regularly. I usually don't have the 80p that is recommend and quite often put £1 in the toll as I know that 20p will go... More

After paddling for 8 miles on the flooded Wye (or further if you include zig-zagging) this bridge and adjoining landing area was the most welcome sight as was the lift back home to Hollybush Camping

Passed over here a few times...........very friendly toll-booth operators. 80p return? We bought tea one day and sat in the gardens overlooking the bridge and River Wye. Very tranquil.

It's a bridge, it gets you across the river. It is not a visitor attraction in my book and I wouldn't go out of my way to come here. 80p for cars to cross, return journeys on the same day are free if you remember the code.

Thank you for taking the time to review Whitney Bridge after your trip across. What a shame you didn't stop and take in the beautiful historic 240 year old wooden structure. The River Wye looks amazing in the sunshine with salmon leaping out, herons and otters. Last week the swans had their nine cygnets out playing too. You would have... More

Fascinating historical landmark, very friendly owners and pretty spot. 240th birthday for this landmark this year! Cute snack shack and pleasant seating area, quirky, clean toilets and great access for canoes. They hire bicycle and canoes here and the river is very wide so perfect for canoeists. Remember to bring 80p in change for the toll, especially when passing through... More

We took a detour specifically to travel over the historical bridge after researching it on the internet & finding it to be only 80p for a return journey. This also ensured we had the right change too, though I believe that any extra is given to charity. But drive slowly, because it's a short bridge, and if you blink you'll... More

Been travelling over this lovely old Toll Bridge on and off over the last 40 years, first with my parents and more recently with my family. With the exception of the traffic lights nothing really has changed, great value at 80p for a return journey It's always such a pleasure to travel over this lovely bridge.

Contacted Maggie and Graham at the bridge by email to ask if we could land our canoes there. Maggie got back in touch very promptly, was extremely helpful and arranged for car parking as well.. Also very good tea and fine conversation. Looking forward to next visit...
