A lovely bridge joining Strood & Rochester; Rochester Bridge in Rochester, Medway was for centuries the lowest fixed crossing of the River Medway in South East England.

The bridge is used by pedestrians cars and trains usually but not on Christmas Dickens weekend ! Network rail once again chose to annoy people trying to get to Rochester on the first weekend in December once again. Engineering works!! Rochester bridge served us well as we travelled to Ebbsfleet on the High speed, then doubled back to Strood to... More

The bridge is not wide enough for all the traffic really neither are the roads around it. The bridge itself looks lovely and is safe.

I didn't no that there is three bridges at this point crossing the river. Two for cars and walkers ,and one for trains. You get a lovely view of Rochester Castle from the bridge. All so you can see an old submarine that's docked in the river.

This is just a bridge connecting Rochester and Strood by crossing the Medway river. At either end there are lion statues and on the Strood side there are stairs down to the riverside below for people on food. I guess the architecture of the bridge is interesting if you are into such things, and it does give quite a nice... More

I realise that a bridge is just a bridge but some are much more interesting than others and this is one of the much more interesting ones. It is lovely viewed from the side but you see much more of the detail whilst travelling over it (unless you're the driver). It is a lovely bridge taking you into a lovely... More

This bridge has a lot of pokéstops on it. Outside of the virtual world it's an ok bridge, you can photograph the castle, look at a rusting Russian sub, or feel the harsh wind coming from inland on your face as you take in the sight and sound of the M2 motorway bridge in the distance. If you are into... More

If you are into bridges all well and good but I see it only as a congested means of getting over the Medway. If you are walking it is not very pleasant with all the traffic fumes

It's nice enough, interesting architecture and some good sites off the edge. However I'm not sure I would class it as an actual attraction

This bridge is end to end enjoyment. You can walk (or drive or take the train) from Rochester to Strood and then return by the same route. If you make the Strood to Rochester trip on a pleasant summer evening you can get some great photos of Rochester Castle
