“Good Photo Opportunity”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2014

You'll pass under this bridge if you do the self walking tour. Quite impressive and worth a couple of pics but that's it really. You can see the similarity to the Venice bridge although there is actually no link between them. The Oxford bridge connects two college buildings.

“Lovely little bridge”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2014

This is a lovely little bridge linking the main buildings of Hertford College. It is named after The Bridge of Sighs in Venice, but smaller, and you can walk under it and have a closer look. It's a lovely structure actually and a great photo opportunity.

“Great photo op!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2014

Beautiful bridge connecting 2 buildings in the college. Beware of tourists stopping in front of you to take a picture though!! And as you pass under the bridge turn into the alley to visit the Turf Tavern!
