Owner description: The main buildings at Hertford College are linked together by a corridor called the "Bridge of Sighs," built in 1913-14 and named after the Ponte dei Sospiri in Venice.

Although pretty to look at, it's just a bridge, and it's by no means the prettiest or most impressive thing to look at in this area. If you are nearby, it won't cost you a lot of time to just swing by, but I would not travel far just for the bridge.

You have seen this bridge in a number of films. The more practical reason for existing can be to walk to the dining room on one side from the other side.

Almost as famous a building as the bridge in Venice...one of the must see buildings when walking around the ancient colleges of Oxford.

Beautiful bridge just beside some of the major sights in the middle of Oxford. If you pass it stop and have a look, even worth planning the walk past it :-)
