Beautiful old bridge, surprised the 5p toll makes it worthwhile. This is obviously an old bye-law. Two men manning the little pay box at busy times...no hassle at all. Long may such traditions survive.

This Toll bridge costs 5pence to cross, if you heading along the road ensure you have some change!! A unique, local tradition.

Fantastic little toll bridge over the Thames at Eynsham lock. By far the best toll bridge in the area and great value at only 5p/trip. The kids will love it and a superb experience for anybody visiting the area.

If you enjoy waiting half an hour to give a surly teenage 5p you will love this. Its an absolute pain and all the locals hate it (apart from pete).

Travelled across this by chance, 5p?! Hilarious... lots of queueing traffic in rush hour which I would imagine annoys the regular commuter. For 5p it’s amusing! Be careful if walking across- the footpaths either side are very skinny!!

Not even one star! For the first time in 20 years of crossing this bridge I didn’t realise I had no change when I pulled up. I was told “well why are you here then” and told to “f@£& off” by the lad in the...More

5 pence to get across the bridge. Wonder what would happen at rush hour. Poor pperson would get dizzy turning right to left collecting the pennies.
