Event details

Your View at the Forth Bridge is a unique opportunity, brought to you in partnership with Network Rail and Balfour Beatty, with all profits from the event going to Barnardo's Scotland. This exclusive experience allows you to view the Edinburgh and Fife coastlines as you have never seen them before - from this unique viewing platform 361ft up! Tickets are £50 per person and the full experience will last approximately 1 hour.

Groups of up to 13 people will arrive on site to check-in, before being taken into our Forth Bridge on-site exhibition hosted by the Briggers. Here you will be told stories about the bridge and the people involved in its construction, through an archive of materials and videos. Following this, you will be given a safety briefing and escorted to the hoist. This is an external metal lift that is on the east side of the North cantilever. Once you are 361ft high on the platform, the group will be guided around the views with particular points of interest highlighted. A photographer will be stationed on the platform in order to capture memories of this once in a lifetime experience.

Guests must be 18 years old and over to attend.
