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

A wonderful sweeping futuristic stainless steel bridge which links the town centre of Holyhead with its ferry port and railway station, art work is included into the construction, with a series of mosaic features at the town end. But was it worth £6.2 million for a handful of people to cross every day ( even less in winter !! )... More

Nicely preportioned stylish footpassenger bridge with a good view across the inner harbour area of holyhead and is a link to the train station and Ferry terminal from the towns highstreet. Modern lighting at night with blue spotlamps and adjacent a very trendy bar at the high street end. Not essential viewing but nice if your in the area

All the shops and pubs are closing in the town ......the bridge was suppose to be a passenger - tourist gateway from the ferry terminal / train station to the town , but... More
