Fodor's Expert Review Somerset Bridge

Dockyard and The Western Parishes Bridge/Tunnel

The West End is connected to the rest of Bermuda by Somerset Bridge, and once you have crossed over it, you're no longer, according to local lingo, "up the country." More than marking a boundary, Somerset Bridge is something of an attraction in its own right because it's reputed to be the world's smallest drawbridge. It opens a mere 18 inches, just wide enough to accommodate the mast of a passing sailboat.
