A magnificent and graceful bridge

Each time we travel down the coast and see this bridge, it makes our hearts sing. Can't give 5 stars in view of the cost at the peage!

We have had many visits to Honfleur and seen the bridge from the start of building,it is so much easier and faster to get from Le Havre to Honfleur than the former Tancarville bridge further upstream. It is possible to stop at the rest area for refreshments and view the small information area explaining the construction

We went under this bridge coming and going from Honfleur on a Seine River cruise. When we were moored at Honfleur, the bridge dominated the Eastern skyline. We were watching huge semi-trailers and tour coaches crossing the bridge and they looked so miniscule compared to the size of the bridge. Going under the bridge in daylight emphasised the engineering feat... More

It's not that expensive, 6.30euros or less to drive a car over it. We drove over a different bridge after being told it was very expensive, we wished we'd just done it!!

Most drive accross it on way back to GB from Brittany. You can also walk and cycle it if you like. Great views from the top of the road. Be brave, go for it!

We had been over this bridge a time or two before, but it always impresses. It stands out against the skyline, like a beautiful piece of Meccano (a boy's toy) stretching up into the heavens. Great views, but also a great view itself from, say, the harbour-side in Honfleur.

You have to pass 2 bridges to go further on your way to Brittany (Bretagne). As you are driving over the bridges, you have a wonderful overview of the surroundings.

Incredible engineering partnered with spectacular views make this a must do. I know it's on a bridge over the Seine, but what a bridge! Truly magnificent and beautiful. Would put many other civil design projects to shame. Take the drive!!

An exceptional experience driving over the river. The view is breathtaking and was tempted to park up and walk across.

Wonderful bridge that must shorten the journey between Le Have and Brittany by the best part of an hour. The first bridge is grand enough but you soon find that a second,possibly even more spectacular, is to follow,
