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

Only used by locals to cut across the town. be wary of the station end as it has its regular wasters hanging about. lighting fair with a resting spot around halfaway across. disabled freindly as it has a ramp from one level to the next. on reaching the town side, you are greeted with the view of "Bargains Galore" which...

A atheistically pleasing piece of architecture and very practical (saves a lot of time than if there wasn't a bridge.) Also, I visited at sunset and got some great pictures of it.

Getting from the station/ferries would be a heck of a lot harder without it. Although not the most beautiful structure I've ever seen it is pleasing on the eye.
