Find out more about this iconic landmark that is over 100 years old, by taking a stroll through our Bridge Visitor Centre. Here, wherever possible, we have described the building of the bridge directly through the words of those involved in its planning and erection.

The bridge has also been described as “an ornament rather than a desecration of the scene”, and according to the American Society of Civil Engineering, “embodies the best abilities of the engineer to enhance the beauty of nature rather than detract from it”.

Copies of original photos are on display which was taken from the early 1900’s on show starting from pre-construction through the building of the Bridge, right up to what the Bridge is today!

Free entry for all visitors to the Bridge.
