Bridge of Sighs Tours

As striking as its namesake in Venice, the Bridge of Sighs is one of Cambridge’s most memorable landmarks, spanning the banks of the River Cam at St John's College. Built in 1831 by architect Henry Hutchinson, the bridge actually bears little in common with its Venetian counterpart, aside from being a covered bridge. It’s none-the-less a romantic spot, with its Neo-gothic arches and dramatically sculpted windows. 

Now a grade I-listed structure, the bridge remains an important thoroughfare for college students, linking the New Court with the old college. For visitors, the best view of the bridge is from the river and Cambridge punting tours typically pass beneath its arches.
