Fun short stop if you bring some bread to feed the ducks and fish that congregate by the parking area below the tiny bridge.

World's smallest draw bridge, you can walk along the railway trail from Somerset Bridge to Somerset Police station and proceed to Dockyard, all by foot. Beautiful and safe atmosphere.

Somerset Bridge is the world's smallest working drawbridge. Shown on a 1624 map, it allows the passage of the Bermuda dingy sailboat masts (non-stayed masts). It spans only 22 inches (56 cm). Roads crews block the road and open the hinged section by hand. It is featured on the Bermudan 2009-serise $5 bank note.

Nice for an interest point of view and few pictures, came by bus (7 or 8) and ask driver to call for the stop. A very practical bridge
It is also possible to start part of the railway trail from here, north and south and there is a good petrol station at the start for refreshments and toilets

I mean it, its the smallest drawbridge in the world about 12 inches wide. Opens for the masts of small sail boats to pass. Unique and interesting

beautiful views from both side of the bridge. A small parking area where you can go to water, buy fresh catch or go to the store. A short visit on a short bridge. No longer used.

Pretty stop for pictures at this unique draw bridge. There is a small parking area right over the bridge so you can safely stop for a picture. Worth the 10 minutes just to say you have seen it.

My husband and I did a private tour of the island on September 19, 2018. So glad we did. Because of it being a private tour, our tour guide not only drove us over the bridge and noted we were riding over the world's smallest drawbridge, he pulled into a parking area, we walked to the water's edge, saw some fish which he fed, and then was told how the bridge operated in it's entirety. Very interesting. Got some good photos too! If your into seeing the world's smallest, oldest, most unusual etc etc type stuff, you will want to make it a point to see this bridge.

We drove over this bridge quite a few time both on a bus and in the Twizy we rented. We didn't know it was a bridge let alone the smallest drawbridge until we were told about it. It is a nice bridge and nice to have a look at
