My husband and I enjoyed the beautiful views on and around the bridge. We would definitely recommend this picturesque location, however there are several things visitors should know. The walk to and from the bridge is quite long and it is not accessible for wheelchairs...More

We went on a Saturday so the line was very long. The view made the wait tolerable though. The whole area is a photographers dream! I highly recommend going, however, I would go when it's not quite so busy. I would also recommend wearing good...More

If i had know how far I would have to walk up/down hills and stairs just to cross a robe bridge I wouldn't have bothered. For what it was, it was expensive. The hystory of it is interesting and there is a nice cafe.

The parking is free but you have to pay for an hour time slot to walk down and cross the bridge. Free to National Trust members.

I am not sure but the local on site Restaurant does so I would assume that payment booth for the Bridge would also accommodate.
