Bridge of Sighs, St John’s College University, Cambridge, England.
Built in 1831 by Henry Hutchinson, the Bridge of Sighs crosses the River Cam between the college’s Third Court and New Court and is a Grade I listed building. Named after the ‘Bridge of Sighs’ in Venice, they have little architecturally in common beyond the fact that they are both covered.
The bridge is one of Cambridge’s main tourist attractions and was a favourite with Queen Victoria who is said to have loved it more than any other spot in the city.
