It's a bridge

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

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

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

Lovely. It might just be a bridge, a way to traverse the river, but as bridges go it is worth a look. A modern foot bridge with seating allowing you to take a load off and watch the river run past and observe the local wildlife (I do mean both the birds/animals and the drunks). You can always get a... More

At the end of the day - It's just a bridge. But it's a nice bridge; and if you're looking for somewhere to pass the time, or eat out in the open with a nice view, you can't go far wrong with Cas bridge.
