Event description
Take a walk with Menai Heritage to see the Britannia Bridge and its hidden lions!

About this event

The Britannia Bridge, which spans the Menai Strait to Anglesey, was built by Robert Stephenson and opened as a rail bridge in 1850. The entrances to the original iron tubes that carried the trains were flanked by large lion sculptures. Since the reconstruction of the bridge in the 1970s the lions have been hidden from view, below the new road deck.

The sculptures once flanked the entrance to the tubular bridge, but now lie below the road deck, seldom seen.

Our qualified tour guides will be leading walking tours to the base of the Britannia Bridge, where the impressive structure of the bridge can be appreciated, and where you can see the magnificent lion sculptures. You will learn about the history of the bridge and how it was constructed, as well as general information about the Menai Strait.

Visitors will need to walk a short distance to the bridge. The walks will be mostly on the level on unpaved roads or paths, but some parts will be on a steep slope or down steps to a rocky seashore. The walk is about a mile long and will last about 90 minutes.

With current Covid-19 restrictions we can have organised walks with people from multiple households. We limit our groups to 12 people. Your guide will remain two metres away from you at all times; please respect this requirement.

Walks must be booked and paid for in advance through EventBrite. Use the ticket options on this page to book.

Menai Heritage is a charity and all proceeds from these walks go towards supporting our work preserving the heritage and telling the story of the Menai Bridges area.
