The bridge and history of the bridge are amazing. Go down under the bridge by deep sea world for a great view of the structure.

My daughter and I crossed over this bridge multiple times as we travelled from the Queensferry Double Trree Hotel into Edinburgh. It was an easy commute with no toll.

A don't know why people are picking on the bridge. It is a great bridge. It's been open and worked for nearly 130 years. Hasn't lost any trains and looks nice in red. I give it 5 stars.

Travelled over the new bridge today on the way to North Queensferry. Although the new bridge is impressive it is not in the same class as the Rail bridge built over 120 years ago and is now a Scottish Icon. It cost the lives of...More
