Nothing much from the high street but if you stroll down the steps next to the bridge along the Hogsmill river, you get a great view of this ancient bridge. Carry on along the narrow walkway towards the Thames and you can grab a meal,...More

Have been to Kingston many times over the years and had no idea this place was there. Fascinating bit of history for Kingston and worth seeing if walking that way along the High Street. Not really much to see, but the plaque makes interesting reading.

Been over Clattern Bridge many times and like other reviewers stopped to look over the bridge to see large fish below. A bridge that is this old and has a history to tell should be highlighted to the public.

A bit of history that most people would drive over without knowing it is there. Interesting to see. Can be viewed from both sides.
