We Passed under on the bus tour. Like all in Oxford, it was very impressive. We did not get to cross over it.

Is well worth a visit when lit by the local old- style lamps. Especially on the way to the Turf Tavern!

I think it has a passing resemblance to the Bridge of Sighs in Venice, in that it connects two buildings and a passing resemblance to the Rialto Bridge - I think it's just a. But it's what people have made a tourist attraction. It's quite an attractive piece of architecture and while you're rambling through the streets of Oxford it's worth a little look to see what all the fuss is about, and it's free.

A real piece of architecture to be admired. in the centre of Oxford is a must to see. Don't miss it while gazing at all the other fabulous sights of Oxford stone buildings. I have actually had the pleasure of walking over in years past when I stand and wonder who else has walked these streets.
