Roundabout route

Looks quite impressive in the evening with the lights sparkling on the harbour, however its final destination if travelling from portside leaves a lot to be desired.

Strange one this - 2nd visit to Holyhead (town) in about 18 months. The bridge not so clean and shiny, with weeds below. Holyhead town itself is awful, its even worse than our last visit and there is no bridge that can alter that. Its such a terrible outlook when you come across the bridge and see dirty empty buildings.... More

The Bridge gives a good overall aspect of the inner harbour at Holyhead & also links the town to the Railway Station . Its handy , but seems a bit out of place in a town that otherwise appears to be very run down & neglected . Surely the finance that was used to construct this would have been better... More

Why is this on trip advisor, it's a bridge made from steel with no history, no character and lots of rust.

A Bridge opened in 2006 which saves Walkers & possibly Commuters/other Travellers a little time. We walked over it as we were walking the Coast Path from Penrhos Beach to St Cybi's

Gateway to a totally delightful quaint island, easy access via the bridge. The afternoon we were there they had a traditional Welsh performance on the jetty close to the bridge. They have free WiFi on the jetty and most everything in the town is a 10 minute walk from this bridge or utilize the complimentary shuttle service.

On my recent trip to Holyhead only one thing sticks in my mind; Bargains Galore cash and carry. This is a perfect example of  what an entire boot-sale would look like if it was fit into a shop. The items for sale within it are so old that most are probably banned by current EU regulations. How they havn't yet... More

Come on folks, how can you vote 5 stars for this bridge? What does it have of interesting? Personally I found more interesting the Menai Bridge, where there are some panels with the story and the view of the strait could be considered beautiful. This bridge leads to the harbour and it passes above a busy road. If I could... More

This is a bridge from the railway station area into to town. Useful as a short cut but I don't think it can be listed as a special place to visit.
