Forth Bridge, a cantilever railway bridge over the Firth of Forth, is a popular tourist destination for travelers worldwide. It is sometimes referred to as the Forth Rail Bridge to distinguish it from the Forth Road Bridge, though this has never been an official title. Plans are in action to build a visitor’s center as well as a viewing platform at the top of the bridge. Soon, you may be able to walk up the track to the southern tower, 100 m (330 ft) above sea level. This bridge has also been featured regularly in popular culture. You can find it in the film The 39 Steps by Alfred Hitchcock, in the novel The Bridge by Iain Banks, in various advertisements, and even in the video game Grand Theft Auto.

  • This is a fantastic bridge , which offers great photo opportunities during the day from sunrise to sunset . It looks amazing lit up at night too 
  • The "Quick facts" notes are correct, but the short descriptions posted by Google are incorrect. The label says it is an "Iconic suspension bridge for traffic" - it should be "Iconic suspension bridge for railway only". The short description says it is "1.5-mile long, twin-towered suspension bridge carrying road traffic, open since 1964. - Google" - this should apply to the other bridge, the "Forth Road Bridge".
  • THE bridge over the forth, iconic, internationally know, engineering masterpiece, the Victorians knew how to put these things together. If travelling over on a train, or looking at from the banks, it really is a must see.
  • Fantastic piece of engineering and history. one of the most iconic bridges in the world. Lovely view.
  • Stunning! Take a walk over the road bridge for some great views, then get down to both North and South Queensferry for some close-ups. Some eateries in South Queensferry have great views of the rail and road bridges.
  • One of the most romantic places at night... Take your partner there at night and feel the magic..
