As TripAdvisor keeps emailing me to do a review of something and suggested Rochester Bridge is near me, I must say that I have been over this bridge. It is actually three bridges. At least. And I have traversed all of them. Many times. In both directions. As solo, couple, family, family with children, for business and pleasure. The bridge... More

Rochester Bridge carries the A2 over the River Medway between Rochester and Strood in Kent. This bridge comprises three bow arch trusses forming the main river spans, a fourth plate girder river span, and a simply supported land span. It has been around for seven centuries.

The stone bridge it replaced was nearer the castle and it is believed locally that the stone balustrades that line the river beside the current bridge... More

I just love walking across this beautiful bridge. Excellent views of the Medway on both sides. Take time to enjoy the construction and the decorations.

It is a nice iron Victorian bridge built in a place where a roman timber bridge served people for about 1300 years ! How a timber bridge could last 1300 years and only be destroyed by a storm ? Amazing !!!

The bridge is used by pedestrians cars and trains usually but not on Christmas Dickens weekend ! Network rail once again chose to annoy people trying to get to Rochester on the first weekend in December once again. Engineering works!! Rochester bridge served us well as we travelled to Ebbsfleet on the High speed, then doubled back to Strood to... More
