It was a very mixed day weather wise when we arrived, so recommend taking raincoat/brolly as it just came on suddenly. It is about a 10-15 minute walk to the bridge and it is not too taxing, but the steps are fairly strenuous. However, you...More

Beautiful place to visit but the walk to the bridge and across the bridge is not for the faint hearted or indeed for those with a disability. However, that aside the walk was so nice and the views are breath taking. The bridge is much...More

Nice walk and pretty view of the coast line and water. The bridge is a very tame walk. Some people looked terrified, but it is not very high, is sturdy and very safe. Actual bridge is not very long. Try Capilano bridge in Vancouver if...More

Great way to pass a few hours. There's a 20 min walk to the bridge with beautiful coastal views. The bridge is wobbly which adds to the fun, not as long as seems in photos. Beware of queues. We had a 10 min wait for...More

Visited Sunday 12th August with family home from London and Vienna. The elderly gentleman at the entrance was so welcoming and lovely great start to our visit. The wait of an hour to access the bridge enabled us to buy tickets and return later after...More

A lovely coastal area to look around. When you arrive you are told how long until the next ticket tour is available - I think we had to wait about an hour as it was quite busy. It’s a nice little crossing across the bridge...More

Good experience to get the teenagers out of the car and exploring the coastline. Views are so stunning the only time they went for their phones was to take pictures. We booked our time slot and went along the coast to do the Giant's Causeway...More
