As footbridges go then this is good because it so wonderfully blends in with the rest of Conwy. There are some excellent views of the river and estuary walking across

As we are N T members we decided to go to Conwy,and see this attraction. It's free to walk across the bridge,and it's fascinating to look at the structure. There is a small fee for the toll house unless you are in N T. Interesting to see how small it was.

It's a shame that this beautiful of bridge is now sandwiched between the modern road bridge and a covered (and ugly) rail bridge. Designed to blend with the character of Conwy Castle, it would have been magnificent in its day.

Just visited the Castle. Then I found about suspension bridge. This bridge is managed by National trust. But entry is free. You can view the bridge from the castle and come down from the castle and walk through the side to the bridge. It is only walking bridge and no vehicles allowed.

This is a really interesting place with some great architecture on the bridge. The toll house is really interesting too. Well worth a visit.

It's a shame more isn't made of this bridge as it was a great achievement when it was built, and the little toll house is also very interesting and gives you an insight into life in days gone by.

Impressive bridge to walk across with views of the castle. There is a gatekeepers cottage at the end to visit, guides to tell you the history behind the house.
