A complete list of bridges in Wales with pictures. Famous Welsh bridges, the biggest and the highest. From the earliest arch and beam bridges to the newest suspension and truss bridges, this list has them all. We build bridges to span obstacles, be it a valley, waterway, or another road.

No surprise then that bridges often become iconic landmarks for their region.
