Been with my Dad, went just to see what it was like as we'd never walked across it, it's quite fun to stand on and watch the river. Beautiful views and benches to sit on. But it is just a bridge.

I visited this last week with my dad and took a lovely photo of the sunset over the water by the Flour Mill. As others have said its a bridge which gets you from one side to the other, but is a lovely curved piece of architecture!

It's a bridge over a river. Admittedly it's a nice modern curvy bridge, but it's still just a bridge. There is not much to get excited about. Try a visit to Queens Mill which is next to the bridge, it's much more interesting.

Always enjoy crossing this bridge, particularly when the river is flowing fast - which it generally is! Very nicely designed.

I do like visiting the bridge as it is a nice place to think and enjoy hearing the rush of water beneath you. Take so bread for the birds when u visit.

This bridge is just for the locals to get across the river into Castleford centre I wouldn't call it an attraction it's just a necessity

This is a nice bridge. But it is just a bridge. I d say it's probably nice than 60 percent of the bridges I've been on but it is just a bridge

Went here when it first opened, saw it on Grand designs and it is spectacular, a nice thing about it, it has seats on it for you to enjoy the view.

Not sure why Trip Advisor want a review on this but here goes... Yes its quite a pretty bridge. It winds abit and there's benches on it to sit on and look at the view. But at the end of the day its a BRIDGE. More people probably use it for getting from one side to the other than who... More
