Owner description: The main buildings at Hertford College are linked together by a corridor called the "Bridge of Sighs," built in 1913-14 and named after the Ponte dei Sospiri in Venice.

Beautiful bridge connecting 2 buildings in the college. Beware of tourists stopping in front of you to take a picture though!! And as you pass under the bridge turn into the alley to visit the Turf Tavern!

Beautiful bridge near the Bodleian Library. Great for photos but a shame you can walk from one side to the other.

It really is a nice piece and the whole street is nice and it's in front of the Library so quite easy to reach. It's worth the visit

I saw many photos of this before I visited and so I really wanted to see it. As luck happens, I stumbled upon it on my first night there when I was exploring and it didn't disappoint - it is very, very pretty (as is everything else in Oxford!) Worth a visit and photo!
