I can't wait to do the bridge walk later in the year, as they do on Sydney Harbour Bridge, although I might need to chose my day carefully, to avoid getting blown off!
This is an amazing feet of engineering, of which us Brits should be very proud.

This soon to be 125 year old bridge is shortly going to become one of the Wonders of the World; it is a magnificent piece of engineering opened about the year 1908 or so. Later this year you will be able to to the top of one end of the bridge which spans the River Forth, in Scotland. Going on this Bridge by foot won't be for the feint of heart!

We're so glad we made the effort to go to this place! It is an easy trip from Edinburgh and a nice day out. We took a train from Edinburgh Waverly to Dalmeny station, it must have cost us £ 4.50 a return ticket each. When you leave the station, there's a little coffee stand. Go around it and you'll get to the street; there's a bus stop across the street and a footpath that starts behind it. It is a lovely walk in a green area. It is not far, and when we got to see a bit of the bridge through the trees, wow, it was breathtaking! The community by the shore is so picturesque, with its narrow streets and typical UK brick houses - just lovely! We had nice hot chocolate in a small café on High Street called Jitter Bean, it was so homely and cozy, it felt like somebody's house! Our original plan was to take a boat trip that supposedly left from a pier in the area, but looking at the bridge from the shore was good enough to us. It was one of the highlights of our trip to Edinburgh and strongly recommend it to anyone interested in structures and architecture as well as beautiful scenery.

This landmark is a must-see for all Victorian railway bridge fans. It effortlessly spans the Firth of Forth and provides a stunning way to get in and out of Fife on the train. There's a poignant memorial on both banks of the Forth to those who lost their lives whilst building it in the late C19th.
