Nice bridge in a nice place. Nice views from the bridge too. We had a walk up and down the roads and paths had a pint in a nice little bar. There are a few cafes if you fancy a coffee or tea.

So beautiful and peaceful place. People are very nice and try to visit all the museums too. Walking on the Bridge make you think and thanks the people who build it.

Lovely bridge and toll house over the river. Lots of nice bars and restaurants nearby, so you can easily spend some time here, with nice walks too along both sides of the river

Wonder at the abilities of the design and construction engineers with a bridge that is still strong and safe as well as being attractive to the eye.

I'm biased as I live here. But would recommend to anyone to come and have a look around and visit the bridge and little toll house museum
