Wandered across this bridge to walk off our fish and chips bought from the centre. Could do with a bit of a clean up as not very attractive walking up the steps crossing from the high street into the train station. A bit of a nothing, but could make the bridge, train station and the town centre more of an... More

I know its supposed to bring people into the town from the ferry terminal and there are 24 cruise ships calling this year but really there is nothing in the town to do/see and all the retailers are out of town. Pity

After I took the pictures of this odd insert into a traditional Welsh village setting, I just had to walk it. After all, it's there, and it calls to you, and it links the railroad station with the town. As if by magic, you cross over!

I walked this a few times since I have been in Holyhead over the festive period, How ever you sugar coat it the bridge is a £6 million pound short cut between the train station and town

What can I say it is a bridge. Not particularly long, or cleverly designed. It joins Holyhead high street with the train station. The train station is grubby, Holyhead matches the train station. Cheap cafe's, lower end shops, and dirt basically all surrounded by an old tired town. As for the bridge it was considered by a large number of... More

Strange one this - 2nd visit to Holyhead (town) in about 18 months. The bridge not so clean and shiny, with weeds below. Holyhead town itself is awful, its even worse than our last visit and there is no bridge that can alter that. Its such a terrible outlook when you come across the bridge and see dirty empty buildings.... More

Looks quite impressive in the evening with the lights sparkling on the harbour, however its final destination if travelling from portside leaves a lot to be desired.

The Bridge gives a good overall aspect of the inner harbour at Holyhead & also links the town to the Railway Station . Its handy , but seems a bit out of place in a town that otherwise appears to be very run down & neglected . Surely the finance that was used to construct this would have been better... More

Why is this on trip advisor, it's a bridge made from steel with no history, no character and lots of rust.
