Halfpenny Bridge by Night
This bridge, when it opened over a century ago, carried pedestrians across the river for a toll of a halfpenny - hence its nickname.
On the left of the bridge is the now fashionable 'Left Bank' area known as Temple Bar. The Halfpenny Bridge is showing its age, and is being augmented by a second pedestrian bridge 100m further upstream.
Go downriver to the Customs House.
