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.

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.

In the day and age of all things modern, historical gems like this beautiful little bridge in the breathtaking Hereford countryside, and the dedicated, warm and friendly couple who look after it, really were a highlight in our travels. Being so picturesque, my husband and I decided to make a night of it and pitched our tent in the camping... More

OK, this is 'just a bridge' but, it's also a very nice old bridge that looks quite attractive and which stands over the River Wye which therefore enables you to look down the river at some outstanding scenery and if your lucky see kingfishers, otters, herons, salmon, barbel, bats in the evening, all manner of wildlife. The owners are also... More

Standing on the toll bridge, gazing into the fast flowing river Wye is a pleasant way to pass the time. We had just stopped to fill a few minutes before meeting up with old friends but were lucky enough to see three smart old Morgan sports cars (made in Malvern, of course). Though there is no charge for pedestrians to... More
