Forth Bridge, North Queensferry
(4.8/5 based on 460+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • I'm lucky enough to pass this beautiful bridge every day. Honestly recommend get yourself along to see it, better yet take the train across it. Just such a beautiful and iconic bridge.

  • Iconic rail bridge across the Firth of Fourth. Built in the late 1800's it really is a marvel of engineering that's a must see if you are in the area.
  • Love bridgeđź‘Ť It's recognised internationally for its masterpiece Engineering work.
  • Google, can you please remove the words, "iconic suspension bridge" from the Forth Bridge (that's the one to the East of the Forth Road Bridge). The Forth Bridge is a rail bridge, carries no traffic other than trains and is not a suspension bridge!
  • Amazing site to behold and great to view from a boat
  • Classic bridge when engineering was also beautiful.
