We were travelling from the Yorkshire area to Sunderland and diverted especially to travel on this bridge-well worth the £1.30 fee. Not the first time we have done this and it wont be the last. Keep up the good work. You really have to go across on this as its possibly the only working one left in the world.

Lived in the area quite a while now and visited the bridge around 10 times and each time it has been closed (not always for repairs). Wont be bothering again.

I've always wanted to travel on the bridge (sad perhaps but there you go). The trip was good and I enjoyed it. However the visitors centre was a total waste of time. There are a few photots of this bridge and various other around the world. There is a notice saying that tea, coffee and merchandise is available at the... More

Visited the bridge on Saturday 11th with my daughter. The months of work on the bridge have certainly paid off, it looks fabulous. Thoroughly enjoyed the ride across and back and looking around the visitor centre. Was hoping to walk across the top but it was really windy, still - something to do next time I visit.

There aren't many of these bridges left working in the world now, so if you are in the area it's well worth a look and a ride across. Its only about £1.30 for a car and passengers. The 'car' the bit that you travel across on has just been updated and now has a glass roof, there is also a... More

I have long wanted to cross the Tees on the famous Transporter Bridge and last Wednesday our party of eight made the crossing in two cars. It's only just reopened and the visitor centre still isn't quite finished but this didn't detract from the experience. My only gripe was that it wasn't long enough as it only take a couple... More
