Missing Lock on Lovers Bridge
Jun 2021 • Couples
placed an engraved lock on lovers bridge in 2019 and went there today to see how many more there were. unfortunately looked for our lock but it is gone. Luckily I have pictures to see which locks were next to ours and where it was but that’s all I have is the picture, lock is gone!

Nothing original.
Sep 2020 • Friends
Lovers Bridge over the canals around The Mailbox is a really impressive looking Footbridge, its a nice feature along the canals and has gained a reputation as a " lovers bridge " because of the amount of locks on the bridge ,nothing really original, Paris,Prague,Berlin,Krakow all have such bridges adorned with love locks as do many other Europeans countries, its a nice diversion, bridge looks cool ,very photogenic, makes for some great photographic opportunities and is only worth checking out if you're in the area.

Over 3.000 Lovers Locks And Growing Every Week!
Mar 2020
Myself and my lady Gina began this a few years ago and are amazed at how popular Lover's Bridge has become. There are now over 3,000 locks on the bridge and more are attached every week, which is wonderful. It is sad that lonely folk like @tracey855 post negative things about what is genuinely something nice for people to share and enjoy as couples.

We love the bridge and clearly so do the thousands of people who have attached their locks. It has the full support of the owners of the bridge (The Cube) and long may it last.

Lovers Bridge! Who decided that!!!! Joke. All they are doing is copying the bridge in Paris over the Seine not some canal in Birmingham. What a laugh

Just a bridge
Feb 2019 • Solo
It's a bridge going across the canals. People have begun putting padlocks on them. As a sign of their love apparently. I prefer not to litter as a sign of love personally, hence why I don't understand this being called lovers bridge.

It was closed when I was there too.

Locked together

Lovers bridge on the canal side beside the mailbox and cube developments. The bridge is pretty plain and uninspiring. However if people love each other and lock a padlock on the bridge to symbolise their commitment then fair enough. Elevating the mundane to something more.

Lovely idea!

Myself and my partner put a lock on to mark being together for 10 years. It's great that this is relatively local to us and its a lovely idea. There were lots of locks and I'm sure more will be added over time

It's just a bridge across the cut.

I really dont know why this is on Trip Advisor. Birmingham famously has more canals than Venice and no end of bridges and locks. I think that this is just a desperate ploy from the little used Mailbox to attract customers.
The canal system is a fabulous way of exploring central Birmingham whether by towpath or by a trip boat. Far more fun and as romantic as you wish it to be.

Pedestrian

Modern pedestrian bridge used to transit the canal side. That’s all very boring and necessary. If lovers like it that’s good!
