The Bridge will be open for May Bank Holiday, Monday 2 May from 10am until 4pm. Last entry to the top is at 3.15pm, and last gondola ride is at 3.50pm. A new beer has been produced to celebrate the bridge’s designer and it will be available to buy. Follow the link for details and to book a ticket
May Bank Holiday is the perfect opportunity to take in spectacular views of Newport, the Severn Estuary and valleys from our top walkway and glide majestically across the river in the gondola. Eagle - eyed young visitors (and grown-ups) can also take part in our family trail.
There's also the chance to purchase our new beer, named after the Bridge's designer; 'Arnodin's Ale' !
Important bits and pieces
The site will be open from 10am - 4pm. Last entry to the top walkway will be at 3:15pm and the last gondola ride will be from east to west at 3:50pm.
The gondola will only be accessible to pedestrians and cyclists. Vehicles are not permitted at this time.
Visitors must be physically fit to climb the 278 steps to the top. There is no minimum age requirement however, children must be capable of climbing the steps independently. Baby carriers are permitted.
We recommend purchasing tickets in advance for a faster entry on site but tickets will also be available to purchase on the day. Card payments are preferred.
There is limited parking available on site therefore we encourage visitors to use either Stephenson Street (NP19 0RB) on the east side or the public car park on Mill Parade (NP20 2JS) on the west side.
