    An architectural marvel
    The bridge is just wonderful whatever way your approach it. I drove across it several times during the 3 days I had to explore Anglesey and parked near the Thomas Telford Centre to approach it too on foot. It really is an architectural and engineering marvel - the views are pretty good too.

    Fabulous looking bridge
    Very impressive bridge built in 1826. You can walk across on both sides and therefore get plenty of photos. I was also lucky in that the tide was out when I went and therefore could get right down and walk where would normally be underwater to take lots more photos!!

    The world's first major suspension bridge.
    We drive over the Menai Suspension Bridge on our return journey from Anglesey whist on route from Beaumaris to Bangor. Designed by Thomas Telford to link the Isle of Anglesey to the Welsh mainland and completed in 1826, it was the world's first major suspension bridge and is a Grade 1 listed structure. It is marvellous to know that almost two hundred years after its construction, traffic still passes over its deck suspended high over the Menai Straits. As you cross you pass though the arches of the support columns and the in the narrow carriageways in between the huge suspension chains run either side of the bridge. There is a separate pedestrian path either side of the carriageway and this must give some very good views of the surrounding area.

One of the UK's best bridges. Everyone drives across the Menai Bridge which is a good experience but for the best view, cross the bridge in Anglesey and turn left towards the A55. after about half a mile there is a small layby. Stop and look back for a great view

Historic bridge with beautiful, classic suspension bridge architecture. Very tight entrance restricts the traffic but ok for cars. You actually want to drive slowly to try to admire the amazing scenery on both sides of the bridge. After reaching Anglesey turn left and stop 1/2 mile away for photos of the silly road sign, both bridges and the house on the island in the middle of the straits. Then cross back on other bridge and continue on journey.

This is a fantastic suspension bridge built by the great Thomas Telford. It's an easy stroll from one end to the other and you get excellent views up and down the Menai Straits. The classic view of this bridge with the mountains behind it is on the road from Menai Bridge to Llanfairpwll. There is a choice of 2 lay-bys you can pull over to take a snap of the bridge. It's also worth noting that there are pubs at either end of the bridge if you need a drink or a meal. Definitely well worth walking over this iconic bridge.

An iconic structure. Beautiful from so many aspects. We were walking the coastal path so we had great views from all directions. You can walk under it, across it, take a guided tour. Just one of those sights that we need to experience.

Driving back from Anglesey into Bangor, drove over the older Menai Suspension Bridge.
Telford's masterpiece of Stone & Iron over the Menai Straights.
Amazing that its still standing and in everyday use after all these years.

A great structure, iconic for Anglesey. Easy to walk across but if you park in Menai Bridge and head to the coastal path you can get up close to it
