    An architectural marvel
    The bridge is just wonderful whatever way your approach it. I drove across it several times during the 3 days I had to explore Anglesey and parked near the Thomas Telford Centre to approach it too on foot. It really is an architectural and engineering marvel - the views are pretty good too.

    Fabulous looking bridge
    Very impressive bridge built in 1826. You can walk across on both sides and therefore get plenty of photos. I was also lucky in that the tide was out when I went and therefore could get right down and walk where would normally be underwater to take lots more photos!!

    The world's first major suspension bridge.
    We drive over the Menai Suspension Bridge on our return journey from Anglesey whist on route from Beaumaris to Bangor. Designed by Thomas Telford to link the Isle of Anglesey to the Welsh mainland and completed in 1826, it was the world's first major suspension bridge and is a Grade 1 listed structure. It is marvellous to know that almost two hundred years after its construction, traffic still passes over its deck suspended high over the Menai Straits. As you cross you pass though the arches of the support columns and the in the narrow carriageways in between the huge suspension chains run either side of the bridge. There is a separate pedestrian path either side of the carriageway and this must give some very good views of the surrounding area.

I particularly like this bridge, as a way of getting over to the island. It was single lane running today, for maintenance reasons, but it was still worth it.

It is fabulous. We took a walk over and under the bridge. It was very windy walking over but the views are well worth it. Ifs just as impressive walking under.

After 3 months the bridge is open , at last there is some normality and much needed trade to the businesses on both sides of the bridge.

Closed to traffic at the moment and for the next few months so a great time to walk over it. Very historic bridge with great views over the menu straits on both sides.

200 years old and built with pride and by hand. Truly amazing when you consider Telford also built the roads and the coaching houses to service the connections from London to Holyhead and on to Dublin.

Historic bridge with beautiful, classic suspension bridge architecture. Very tight entrance restricts the traffic but ok for cars. You actually want to drive slowly to try to admire the amazing scenery on both sides of the bridge. After reaching Anglesey turn left and stop 1/2 mile away for photos of the silly road sign, both bridges and the house on the island in the middle of the straits. Then cross back on other bridge and continue on journey.

The Menai Bridge is one of Thomas Telford's earliest and best bridges. It was built using the Iron chain method and completed in 1826. Later John Augustus Roebling would refine this to make longer bridges across dangerously fast-moving water. It is beautiful to see and admire the architecture. It is the First Modern Suspension bridge. There are great views from underneath the structure as well as once you cross to Anglesey. A must see!
