This is a crowded area but comfortable to experience the beauty of river as well as bridge, which indeed is an engineering marvel. Next to the Howrah Bridge is Howrah Railway Station, a popular and iconic one in Indian Railway History.

Hi Balaji, Very short time, you may visit Princep ghat to see beautiful view of river Ganges and Howrah bridge. Have your dinner in park street restaurants and proceed for Sealdah station. If you want to shop, you can visit new market.
