The bridge is the main bridge over the Menai Strait to Anglesey, making it very busy, but it is attractive in its solid Victorian build. For more of an old feel though, go over the Menai Bridge instead.

Very extravagant and looks old. A short stop on the way to Anglesey island from Bangor on the A55/A5

Built as a railway bridge, the sight of the box girder structure must have been wonderful, and the four lions guarding the entrance would have come into their own. Then, in 1970, it burnt down, and was rebuilt to carry both road and rail. It's...More

Driving across this structure I found to be impressive. Good old and lasting engineering. What a time and effort it must've been.

Not a tourist attraction as such but nice bridge for viewing or driving across. Super engineering. Well worth visit if just for a picture

Travelling across by car is disappointing as you are not allowed to stop and passengers only get quick views of the Menai straits. To get the best view of this bridge, park the car at Treborth and walk through the woods. You will be able...More
