The problem is the river Thames! The ancient bridge is worth visiting for its history and architecture. But as there are so few crossings of the Thames in Oxfordshire, Swinford is a twice daily necessity for thousands of commuters. Hence the dreaded long tailbacks. Yer,...More

Today I (accompanied by son in twenties) used the toll bridge , but made the mistake of not checking the tariff list as I drove up. I gave the toll operator £1 and received 5p change. I was surprised but thought the toll must have...More

I stumbled upon this fine example of a traditional toll bridge whilst driving around the Cotswolds, and let me tell you, I couldn't have been more excited! Bridgespotting is my passion (I'd already logged 23 new ones that week!) so to find this particular limestone...More

Severe lack of trolls or goats, locals only spoke basic English, food not great and you couldn’t hear the band.

Real 5 star bridge, stayed up for the entire journey across. 5p toll is significantly better than swimming. Once on the other side it was possible to travel back over for just another 5p. You may find long queues as people experience the bridge.

The Toll Bridge was passable. I’d just gotten over a bridge too far, so this was a very good inexpensive calming influence. All I would add, is that I wouldn’t eat or drink there.

I had the misfortune to stumble into the traffic this toll creates. It's not a toll road in the modern sense, in that it's worth going this route to save time, but in the ancient sense, before there was much traffic. You pay the toll...More

Just to see BMW and Audi drivers turn purple is worth every penny and a day well spent. Great ambiance at the booth, try the £50 note for 5p toll, if you check your change , it is always spot on, in silver and copper,...More

We stayed at a nearby campsite and were surprised by the very long line of cars on the way in. Fortunately for us, we jumped out of the queue. Later we walked across the toll bridge and saw the sign asking for 5p. As pedestrians,...More

Crossing the bridge today, after I’d paid, the guy oh so hilariously (not) thought it appropriate to say ‘Oh you’re wearing a turban’, presumably in reference to my headscarf. I didn’t bother to ask what he wanted to get out of his little jibe as...More
