Forth Bridges Tourism Strategy Launched

24 April 2019

A World-Class Visitor Experience

24 April 019

A plan to boost visitor numbers to the three bridges which span the Firth of Forth has been launched today by Tourism Secretary Fiona Hyslop.

The ten-year strategy highlights a number of opportunities to promote the Forth Rail Bridge, the Forth Road Bridge and the Queensferry Crossing – each one a world record holder in its own right – and to attract people to the area for a world-class visitor experience.

Speaking in North Queensferry, Ms Hyslop said:

“The Forth Bridges are much more than a means of travel. The Forth Bridge has taken its place alongside the Pyramids of Giza and Spain’s Alhambra as one of the world’s most iconic monuments and has been inscribed onto UNESCO’s World Heritage list. Its two magnificent neighbours are themselves great engineering achievements. The bridges span both time and distance as the three bridges were built in three different centuries.

“Today’s launch of the Tourism Strategy sets out the Forth Bridges Forum’s plan to tell the story of the three bridges for the first time, creating a unique experience which will allow visitors to learn about their history as well as marvel at their majesty. 

“By communities, businesses and the public sector working together, we can use the bridges as catalysts for developing the many tourism offerings of the surrounding towns and villages.

“It’s an exciting development which will secure the area’s reputation as a top destination for visitors.”
