Forth Bridge Experience

WT Architecture have been appointed by Network Rail as Architects on the team to develop detailed design proposals for the Forth Bridge Experience. Our team will be led by world-renowned Engineers, Arup, with The Paul Hogarth Company as Landscape Architects, and Turner & Townsend as Quantity Surveyors.

We worked with Network Rail initially to develop the brief for new visitor facilities and access to the Forth Bridge, coming up with some very broad concept proposals. We were delighted to be invited to continue our work with Network following this first stage with a new commission to take the project through to Planning and Listed Building application stage.

The Forth Bridge Experience will consist of a world-class Visitor Centre in North Queensferry directly beneath the imposing Fife Tower, with lift access to the very top of the Bridge taking in the spectacular views. The visitor centre will provide space for events, educational exhibitions, and eating, drinking and shopping facilities.

Our commission also includes designs for a Reception Centre for a Bridge Walk from South Queensferry, which will give thrill-seekers the opportunity to embark on pre-booked bridge walks, crossing out over the water and scaling the bridge's towers.
