IT is an eyesore and going rusty in parts. It does afford a view over the port and leads from the train station to Holyhead high street but there is nothing scenic about it all. When you exit it on the high street you are immediately confronted with a tatty shop selling cheap 'bargains' which seems to compliment the bridge... More

the new bridge in holyhead is a waste of a lot of cash, spent by imbeciles who should have stayed in bed for their entire careers and save some tax payers a quid or two by doing so. on the other hand that money would have been spent on lavish dinners for greedy politicians with a blank check book for...

Very strong expression!.. I like this type of urban architecture. Strict, but free lines. Breathtaking view and wonderful trip around. We took a walk to the city center and found a nice little cafe with a simple dishes.

I walked over this bridge and I have to say it was very reliable. It was free and took me from holyhead town centre near bargains galore to the railway station and towards a different part of holyhead. Without this bridge I would have had to walk around. It saved me approx 15 mins. In these days of unreliability and... More

a great way to get from one side of Holyhead to the other while walking over a 'piece of space age sculpture' rather than a bridge - quite dramatic

The moment I stepped out of the glass door of the ferry/train station on to this bridge, I was captivated by the architectural design. It is simply breathtaking and fascinating. As you walk over it, you get (from different directions) a view of the town, the ferries, the trains/train road and the river. Then you step into an entrance with... More

Having spent a few days in Holyhead I thought I would give the Celtic Gateway Bridge another review having slaughtered it on my last review in June . On closer look at the bridge it is a engineering wonder and you do get a different look at it from different angles and positions. The bridge is a access from the... More

Beautiful bridge design made out of stainless steel and reminiscent of a tesco shopping trolley. Takes you over Victoria Road and up into the most depressing town I have ever encountered, shops and venues boarded up, groups of children running around almost feral at 10 pm at night, vehicles whizzing along the pedestrian precinct..Groups of fat, high heeled inebriated young...

Visiting Holyhead as I do on a regular basis, I can confirm that Cilla Black was correct when she gave the town the title of "the most depressing place on the planet" and the only thing that has changed is that it's even more depressing all these years later. After spending a large of public money on the Celtic Gateway,... More
