Sitting between Clare Bridge and Trinity Bridge, this bridge is named for the nearby Garret Hostel and designed by Timothy Guy Morgan in 1960, an undergraduate at the School of Architecture. Structurally, it looks like a cantilever bridge, but it’s actually a two hinged arch. Not a bridge to go out of the way to see, but it’s a stop if punting on the Cam.

Took a stroll over to the Garret Hostel Bridge to people watch the punters and catch Clare College Bridge at a different angle. Far more modern than other bridges facing the colleges and Backs. Not a bad place to watch the world go by during the summer months.

Garret Hostel Bridge, also known as Orgasm Bridge, was built n 1960 and is one of the newest bridges in the centre of Cambridge. You can take one of the most iconic photo of the Cam River with punts and Clare College building, Trinity Hall Fellows’ Garden and Clare College Bridge. Personally, my favourite photo in this place is the Garret Hostel Bridge with Jerwood Library. This is also the best place to shoot a photo of Trinity Mayball fireworks. Trinity College punts start its punting experience next to the bridge. Situated on Garret Hostel Lane bridge begins between the colleges of Trinity and Trinity Hall. Garret Hostel Lane leads to Burrels Walk and the Cambridge University Library. Garret Hostel Bridge is the only public bridge between Magdalene Bridge and Silver Street Bridge so you can imagine the crowd.
