  • A day before the bridge celebrated yet its 110-jähriges - the day when we arrived, was the first of the winter break unfortunately... worse one can hardly choose a time. Because the structure is so very impressive, we were with the ferries like went over and walked back through the high construction. For this, a very friendly employee on-site has provided us with all interesting. We should come back again...

  • Spent a couple of hours going over the top and getting the gondola back. 270 steps to the top..not for the faint hearted. Amazing and only 1 of 6 working worldwide. 
  • What a great experience. Went over on the car. Very unusual, great price. Brilliant piece of engineering. Would recommend to anyone. 
  • Such an impressive over-engineered structure. Visit on bank holiday when you may be able to walk over the top.
  • A fabulous visit, a beautiful and slightly preposterous structure. The staff were friendly Paul (?) the driver was a great host and is obviously proud of his machine.Well worth the effort. The doubters moaning about paying £1.00 to use the bridge obviously have no imagination. I never thought I would visit Newport for fun. I will be back.
  • Absolutely stunning piece of engineering. Turned up on my motorbike they looked after my helmet, tank bag, and jacket with no hesitation. The volunteers were so knowledgeable and real enthusiasts, able to answer every question. Walked over the top fantastic views, visited the “Engine House” Paul was a delight very chatty. Then the “Gondola” ride back. Will defiantly be doing that again. Thank you so much
  • Good day and rge walk over the top was amazing
  • An excellent piece of engineering that stood against time, now and then.
