Forth Bridge

South Queensferry EH30 9TA

The Forth Bridge is not only one of the most outstanding examples of Victorian engineering in the world, but also one of the world's most spectacular bridges. Currently under consideration for a place on UNESCO's coveted World Heritage list this epic triple cantilever span invariably draws gasps on first sight, which usually continue as you inspect it closer and realise that each of the giant metal support tubes is wide enough to house a London tube train. Six million rivets were used in its construction and tragically almost 100 men died helping this leviathan emerge from the wild waters of the Forth of Forth. As a rail bridge, it is closed to pedestrians, but there are plans to open it up with guided small group tours, and add a visitor centre. Watch this space. For now the best views of it this extraordinary attraction from South Queensferry and from its Forth Road Bridge sibling.
