Tamar Bridge

About us

The Tamar Bridge is a major road bridge at Saltash in southwest England carrying traffic between Cornwall and Devon over the River Tamar. When it opened in 1961 it was the longest suspension bridge in the United Kingdom.

The Bridging the Tamar Visitor and Learning Centre offers an insight into the history and engineering significance of the Tamar Bridge and also its companion the Royal Albert Bridge, built by IK Brunel. Visitors can explore the history through the free exhibits, and school workshops are on offer. There are spectacular views across the River Tamar from the outdoor seating areas.

Guided tours


Every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday 11-12


Join a guided talk about the award-winning Tamar Bridge where we will give you a taste of its history. You will also get a great view of Brunel's masterpiece in bridge engineering, the Royal Albert Bridge, as well as insight into its construction. From the viewing point there are stunning views of the river Tamar and both bridges. After the talk visitors can enjoy a look around the Visitor Centre. The tour is limited to a maximum of 10 people plus the guide, and booking is essential via our website
