A beautiful old bridge built in 1486, with 14 pointed arches, built where the river was forded in Saxon times. It still carries the main road over the River Avon in the centre of Stratford. A ten-sided toll-house was added in 1814. Great photos can...More

Worth a visit at night to experience the artistic design put into the bridge through the use of colourful lighting, constantly changing.

It's old, and it's a busy traffic bridge. I find it an interesting backdrop for pictures I took of boats and swans. I drive over it. I walked over it. I photographed it.

Stunning bridge built in the same year Columbus sailed to America. Gorgeous views of the Avon, RSC, and swans

Busy bridge and probably not seen at its best due to the volume of traffic. Nice design but nothing stunning. Best seen from the pedestrian walkway that runs in parallel. Much better things to see in Stratford.

Nothing to write home about, it's a nice enough bridge across the river, but it also has lots and lots of traffic using it, the best way to see it is from a river boat cruise, which takes you under the bridge through one of...More
