BRIDGE of SIGHS, Oxford

BRIDGE of SIGHS, Oxford
BRIDGE of SIGHS, Oxford

Oxford’s so-called Bridge of Sighs (Hertford Bridge) was completed in 1914 and links two halves of Hertford College.  It has become something of a landmark and is much-photographed. It was never intended to be a replica of the Venetian Bridge of Sighs, and looks more like a considerably smaller version of the Rialto Bridge.

It is not generally open to the public.
