“Beautiful Views on the Old Severn Bridge, especially at dusk”

Reviewed 10 September 2015

When driving back to Wales from a day trip to Bath, we stopped and walked on the Old Severn Bridge, and got some great pictures at dusk. The views were wonderful, especially looking to the new Bridge and towards Wales. The suspension bridge is interesting to look at up close, and while the new bridge is an engineering marvel (we drove over it on the way to England), there is something very magical about the old bridge.

The bridges across the Severn are quite spectacular - and its interesting to see the old and new side by side.
Its often nice to take the old bridge which on windy days you can actually feel moving underneath you, the views both up and down the Severn River are great.
The new bridge although more comfortable to travel on does not offer the same views.
Be aware of Tolls as you enter Wales.

There are 2 suspension bridges over the Severn quite close to each other and vestiges of the earlier ferry terminal, what you do not see is the leaky railway tunnel underneath! The River has a Tidal Bore worth seeing. The big penalty is the toll to use the Bridges which is very expensive and more economical cars are advised to drive around if you have time. As engineering feats they are both worth seeing. I have not visted the visitor centre since I'm usually crossing the bridges in work periods.

The severn bridge we take so much for granted. Go see the visitors centre. Brilliant for history and great facts. The scenery around you is also fascinating. Go around the coast and see the mouth of the river Avon after......
