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.

  • Well designed viewpoint with a load of interesting facts and models of the new and old bridge. Particularly relevant now the new bridge is complete.
  • Cool place to visit so long as there are no school parties coinciding with your visit!
  • It really nice and peaceful now the bridge is closed to all vehicles, definitely worth a visit before it reopens.

  • Spectacular view of the Bridges worth the look and there is plaque's with info to read about the bridges.
