Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    The bridge itself is not very interesting, it is one of the many bridged over the canal. Yet it is one of must see in Birmingham. You will find a bench there with the portraits of the band members. You can take a picture of yourself sitting next to them. By scanning a QR code camera located at the building across the road will be released. More is not to be expected.

    Lovers Bridge over the canals around The Mailbox is a really impressive looking Footbridge, its a nice feature along the canals and has gained a reputation as a " lovers bridge " because of the amount of locks on the bridge ,nothing really original, Paris,Prague,Berlin,Krakow all have such bridges adorned with love locks as do many other Europeans countries, its a nice diversion, bridge looks cool ,very photogenic, makes for some great photographic opportunities and is only worth checking out if you're in the area.

    Turnover Bridge is in Gas Street Basin in the centre of Birmingham. It is a useful way to get over the canal from Brindley Place to the Discovery centre. You can get some really nice views of the area from the bridge. Possibly a good selfie location?

    It's good that this little piece of industrial heritage is still being put to good use.

    Once one of the main transport systems though the UK, the canal system in most city's are now rejuvenated area's with great pubs, bars and restaurants and Birmingham is no exception, the Brindleyplace and Gas Street Basin canal area is a major tourist destination, walking along the canals is cool and walking through the Broad Street Tunnel is really cool, it a tunnel that passes underneath Black Sabbath Bridge named in honour of the heavy metal band, you can feel the history of the tunnel,just thinking how many narrow boats and barges went through this tunnel offers a fascinating glimpse into the industrial history of Birmingham.
    Most definitely well worth a visit if you're in the area.

    Walking around the wonderful Gas Street Basin canal area admiring the great architecture and canal system you cross over or pass under some beautiful bridges,Worcester Bar Footbridge is one particularly beautiful bridge that my twin brother Stephen and I passed as we were exploring this area,constructed in 1792 and separating the two canals ,its a beautiful curved bridge offering great photographic opportunities especially with The Canalside Inn in the background.
    Well worth checking out if you're in the area.

    The canal systems throughout the UK that were the highways for the development of our country as an industrial power are now no longer used for the transportation of goods and supplies but what most every town or city throughout the UK has done has reinvented their use,Birmingham is no exception, Brindleyplace and Gas Street Basin canal area is one of its most popular tourist attractions, lots of pubs, bars and restaurants and some cool architecture, walking along the canals is fantastic and some of its architecture really evocative Bridge Street Tunnel aka Broad Street Tunnel under the Black Sabbath Bridge is one really good example of the architecture to be found here, a short but perfect tunnel ,you can only imagine the amount of narrow boats that plyed their trade through this tunnel ,very photogenic, makes for some great photographic opportunities and is easy to locate along Broad Street.

    Symphony Hall Footbridge aka Brindleyplace Bridge is a lovely little suspension bridge that crosses the canal system in the Brindleyplace area .
    A nice piece of engineering, its bridges and buildings that make this area such a joy to visit, the bridge is very photogenic, makes for some great photographic opportunities and is most definitely well worth a visit if you're in the area, we used the bridge to cross over to The Pitcher & Piano, took some nice photos of the bridge and the views afforded from this bridge.

    Brindleyplace and Gas Street Basin canal area are in my opinion the most popular areas of this most cosmopolitan of city's, great pubs, bars and restaurants along the canal system and great architecture, of special note are the various bridges that criss cross the canals ,bridges such as Brewmasters Bridge.
    This is a fine iron bridge,its not huge ,it brings you over to Brewmasters House ,its a very photogenic bridge,makes for some great photographic opportunities and adds to the joy of walking through the canal area.
    Most definitely well worth checking out if you're in the area.
