Interesting design features for those interested in Mr Brunells bridges. For those of you that don't know, Isambard Kindom Brunell is also responsible for the Clifton Suspension bridge and Templemeads Railway station and the SS Great Britain which can all be found in Bristol.

This may not be the obvious tourist attraction but it can not be doubted its importance in historical relevance. Another Brunel piece of excellence. Recently re-painted gives it new life and whether on the train or walking on the road bridge you can not fail...More

Either take the train across it, or walk over the newer 1961 Tamar bridge for fantastic views of IKBrunel's bridge, the estuary and the towns on both sides. And it's free!

Walk across the new Tamar Bridge and wonder at the engineering of this iconic structure, and whilst you are there pop into Saltash for lovely shops, pubs and restaurants.

Yes, it's just a bridge, but anything built by Isambard Kingdom Brunel is worth looking at. This is a particularly magnificent example of his work, wonderfully built with only the basic technology available.

I don,t believe anyone can consider a bridge built in the last 200 years a tourist attraction. If travelling near Saltash take a glance, but please don,t cause an accident
