“Boring”
Reviewed March 11, 2014

I don't hate bridges, some are nice. This isn't even a proper bridge. It just connects two buildings, and it's too fancy-schmantzy for my tastes too. I could design a better bridge easy.

“A good photo opportunity”
Reviewed March 6, 2014

It'll take you a couple of minutes to take a picture and move on. It's on your way so an extra trip is not needed. That's about it really.

“Brilliant picture”

Makes a wonderful photo from either side. Not sure if you can actually go inside but we didn't. Really beautiful structure.

“Good Photo Opportunity”
Reviewed February 18, 2014

You'll pass under this bridge if you do the self walking tour. Quite impressive and worth a couple of pics but that's it really. You can see the similarity to the Venice bridge although there is actually no link between them. The Oxford bridge connects two college buildings.
