Beautiful bridge

Crossed it twice - expensive but worth it. In the fog it can be sort of spooky. On a clear day, the views of the oncoming support towers are just amazing.

An amazing bridge which you drive over if travelling along the autoroute along the Normandy coast. You have to pay both ways (5.4 Euros) but a great experience. You can divert to further down the Seine if you don't want to pay. The view from Honfleur from which you can see the whole thing is great.

Tall, long slim like the model from the Vogue. Clean lines, simply elegant from all sides. It is worse to spend few minutes, go out from motorway and take a look in detail.

Take the chance to stop before the bridge and admire the engineering of this beautiful bridge. On a day with low wind, go for a climb up and enjoy the views on the harbor of Le Havre. Recommended.

My expectations of this masterpiece of engineering were not met with disappointment. The views from the crest are stunning, unless you are there when it is foggy! The span is colossal and the deck height is lofty. France has a right to be proud of its achievements. The toll could be considered by some as a bit hefty, if memory... More

The first time I saw the bridge, all we can say was "wow"! Tall bridge! It fits well on the location. It is cool to look at and proud to say that I've been on the top! It really tells you that you are going to somewhere beautiful.

We have had many visits to Honfleur and seen the bridge from the start of building,it is so much easier and faster to get from Le Havre to Honfleur than the former Tancarville bridge further upstream. It is possible to stop at the rest area for refreshments and view the small information area explaining the construction

Each time we travel down the coast and see this bridge, it makes our hearts sing. Can't give 5 stars in view of the cost at the peage!

We went under this bridge coming and going from Honfleur on a Seine River cruise. When we were moored at Honfleur, the bridge dominated the Eastern skyline. We were watching huge semi-trailers and tour coaches crossing the bridge and they looked so miniscule compared to the size of the bridge. Going under the bridge in daylight emphasised the engineering feat... More

It's not that expensive, 6.30euros or less to drive a car over it. We drove over a different bridge after being told it was very expensive, we wished we'd just done it!!
