Nice bridge if you like history and architecture. We opted to walk back to the ship after spending the day at the Boatyard. Nice looking older buildings in this town, also enjoyed the boardwalk.

Beautiful and located right in downtown Bridgetown. Some locals set up small shops so bring cash. It is a beautiful place of culture

A must see while in Bridgetown! No cost - but be sure to stop and check out this pedestrian bridge and review its history either prior or after your visit. It is one of those moments when you realize how important a site is to...More

A pedestrian bridge that does open. Not the original, but has a nice arch that commerates the island of Barbados and its independence from Britain. Good photo opportunity.

The dive operation that we used had boats here so getting some pictures was easy. We also went by the bridge on our island tour, so worth stopping for a picture.

Seeing this bridge and arch in person was way more satisfying than any photograph you may of it! Simply wonderful.

Located on bridge street in Bridgetown, Barbados is Chamberlain bridge and it's pretty easy to find. Good photo opportunity. Worth a ten minute stop.

A nice ordinary bridge across the inlet in the centre of Bridgetown. Interesting gateway to the bridge which is an arch which looks much older than it is.
