I would not call this an attraction. For me it was just a bridge which I could use to get easier from the train station to the center. But it is true that the bridge looks very nice and especially during the evening with the lights on. If you are in Holyhead it is very difficult to miss so why... More

The storyboards in the archway in the street at the beginning of the bridge shed light on this contemporary structure. The use of words from a local Welsh poet and mosaics remind visitors of the Celtic connection.

Wandered across this bridge to walk off our fish and chips bought from the centre. Could do with a bit of a clean up as not very attractive walking up the steps crossing from the high street into the train station.

I know its supposed to bring people into the town from the ferry terminal and there are 24 cruise ships calling this year but really there is nothing in the town to do/see and all the retailers are out of town. Pity

After I took the pictures of this odd insert into a traditional Welsh village setting, I just had to walk it. After all, it's there, and it calls to you, and it links the railroad station with the town. As if by magic, you cross over!
