Came here on recent visit to the city and really wanted to see it. Was lucky enough to visit at a bridge tilt time which was great to see. Walked across in the day and saw it lit up in an array of colours at night. Wonderful sight.

The bridge is lifted at set times to show how it swings. Check the times. Get there with friends just before the lifting time and suggest you can get it lifted just for them!! [unfortunately you can't do this for the nearby swing bridge!!]
