We passed under the bridge while on a guided punt on the River Cam. The guide explained the history of the Bridge and we were able to take a photo. It was interesting to see it but no more than that.

Visited here during the punting on the river. This is a beautiful bridge within the St John College.

Saw this when we were punting up the river. Far smaller than the one in Venice but still very nice. A good landmark for Cambridge.

Yes, there is a large WW2 American cemetery just to the north of Cambridge. Not easily walkable for the Bridge of Sighs. Bus or taxi
