Cavenagh Bridge is a historic suspension bridge located in Singapore's Civic District. While smaller than its neighboring Anderson Bridge, it is no less impressive in terms of its historical significance and beauty. Constructed in 1869, the bridge features a simple design with wire cables and steel structures. During our visit to Singapore in April, my wife, son, and I had the opportunity to see Cavenagh Bridge up close and were impressed by its unique design and the views it offered of the city. Whether crossing the bridge by foot or simply admiring it from afar, it is definitely worth a visit for anyone interested in Singapore's rich history and architecture. Highly recommended!

Near the site where the Singapore river entered the sea, now Marina Bay, the British constructed one the first suspension bridge across the river. Today, I believe it is the oldest bridge built starting in 1859 and completed in 1867 and now only allowing foot and bike traffic. It first has the unique and old design that makes you think of like Oliver Twist London. However, it is at the ideal location connecting the financial district of commerce with the old government quarter near the mouth of the river. Between the architecture and location, it was made for pictures. Also, incredible detail in the ironwork.

The Cavenagh Bridge is one of 3 bridges in the Boat Quay area. It's a small suspension bridge and the only bridge in Singapore to survive in its original form. It provides nice views of Boat Quay to the west and Downtown to the east. Although the latter view is slightly obscured by Anderson Bridge and the bend of the river.

This is a nice bridge to walk over and there are sculptures near by that are great to see.
We visited this bridge as my partner loves F1 and he wanted to walk the track that the cars had taken the previous week before we visited, it was actually a good walk!

Another popular/ known bridge in Singapore. It’s beautiful during day and night, so if you can be sure to see it both ways.

Bridge, river, buildings! Every time I go to Singapore I always visit this place just to hanging around taking pics or eating ice cream. It's not too far from Merlion Park, you can walk to get there. Reach this place by taking MRT to Raffles Place :)

Cavenagh Bridge is a iron suspension bridge over the Singapore River, built in the final decades of the 19th century. Combining with the close by Fullerton Hotel, operating in the majestic former General Post Office building, it is a corner of Singapore where part of Singapore heritage can be enjoyed. The bridge is open only for pedestrians and cyclists. The bridge is named after Major-General Cavenagh, a 19th century governor of the Straits Settlements, From this corner of Singapore it is only a short walk to the waterfront and the Merlion.

As bridges go in Singapore
This is probably the most famous one

Has a nice backdrop with the Fullerton Hotel behind it
A good spot for watching fireworks during that season too

One of the oldest bridges in Singapore and a convenient route to take when taking in the sights by foot.
