Have wanted to walk this bridge since seeing it on a television programme a few years back. Now crossed off my 'bucket list'. Easily accessible from the town albeit requiring crossing a busy road in order to reach the pavement. Windy, as you might expect...More

Well worth a walk across if just to enjoy the stunning views of the estuary. Quite a unique bridge and if you time it right the train will cross at the same time as you do!

Had a holiday home here as a child and had happy memories of walking along the railway bridge. Just as stunning as I remembered it

The Bridge is part of a much larger circular walk involving a steam train and Ferry (if chosen). the whole area is a treat for walkers and offers various routes for various abilities. The only minor criticism is the path from Barmouth to the Bridge...More
