Designed by a British colonial architecture firm, Cavenagh Bridge was actually built in Glasgow, tested, disassembled, shipped to Singapore in pieces and reassembled by convict laborers over the course of a year.
Located in the city’s Colonial District, the elegant pedestrian bridge offers a reminder of Singapore’s colonial past. As you approach the bridge, keep your eyes open for an antiquated police notice warning that no horse- or cattle-drawn vehicles are allowed to pass over. The bridge is particularly beautiful at night, thanks to a series of lights that were added during the 1990s, so consider planning to visit on your way to Boat Quay, Singapore’s nearby dining and nightlife hotspot.
