Historic Whitney-on-Wye single track Toll Bridge dates back to 1779. One of just a few remaining in England. Two earlier bridges were washed away by the strong river currents and a stone and timber construction was built in 1797.Open 365 days a year with parking and riverside picnic area. Come and fish, canoe, picnic or camp with us. Perfect setting for camping part way through your canoe trip - on the banks of the River Wye at Whitney Toll Bridge HR3 6EW. Very quiet and private small campsite with fire pit, direct canoe launch/land and parking. Four toilets available (clean and fully stocked with soap and loo rolls etc) plus clean drinking water shower tap (sorry no private showers). Breakfast and BBQs can be arranged - fully licensed so you can enjoy a chilled beer too.

What a quaint little bridge. Make sure you have your pound coin ready and keep a pen in your car to write down today's code to get back over bridge for free. Absolutely beautiful. Take your camera.

For £1 each way this is a great little short cut to Hay on Wye, lovely views of the river as you cross

Hi - thank you for your lovely feedback. We are actually even better value and a complete bargain because the cost is £1 for as many uses as you need in one day from midnight to midnight. When you pay the machine displays a three digit code for you to use for your return trips. When you next here give... More

Always well maintained by the owners, this toll bridge has a lot of history attached to it. Well worth a photo opportunity.

You can snap some lovely pics of the river from the bridge. Walk down through the park and gets some fantastic shots of the bridge and opposite bank. Ideal for a gentle walk and scenery.

Well a few weeks after going for the first time (day trip) we went back for a weekend 2 day trip from Whitney to Hereford (about 27 miles) staying overnight in tent on the way. Even better than the first time. Kieran just as great as on our first visit and a really easy going and helpful bloke. Would definitely... More

One of the very few privately owned toll bridges in UK (only £1). If you find yourself nearby either cross or make a stop in carpark (on main road side of bridge). Unusual construction wooden bridge. Toll house has a cafe and ice creams for a warmer day than when we visited. Benches to sit on alongside the river. Made... More

How lovely to be able to use this quaint bridge and travel across the River Wye like this. I love the board that tells people the cost of crossing the bridge for animals, etc. It is a lovely living history piece of art!

We always cross this bridge given a choice, as its delightful, and a lovely view of the river. My visitor was from the USA and she enjoyed the quaint river crossing.

Worth paying to go over this historic old Toll Bridge if you are on the way to Hay on Wye from Hereford. Saves time and supports a privately run toll bridge.
