There are lots of great bridges. Those not quite good enough for my top 3:

Tower bridge, great, but not quite dominant enough over the surrounding area.
sydney harbour bridge (see tyne bridge below)
Ironbridge - the first iron (so therefore metal?) bridge in the world. Beautiful surroundings, but not big enough!
Some great bridges in scandanavia, popping up in the middle of rivers, or crossing huge lakes!


so in no particular order i choose these 3:

Tyne Bridge - I chose this 'metal frame' nomination over forth of firth/sydney harbour, because i find the surroundings (compact city, quayside, steep bank with buildings on it) a nicer feel and look.

Clifton Suspension Bridge - the worlds first suspension bridge from the worlds most important engineer. Brunels masterpeice is so simple, but its elegant and functional at the same time.

Brooklyn bridge - just beat Golden Gate because of the better view! Only just though! I have the view from long island across this bridge towards downtown in a picture i own, so it has to be here!

Not that it's all that beautiful, but hey it's 12.9 km long, making it the longest bridge over ice covered waters. It connects the Canadian Province of PEI to the mainland. The bridge cost 1 billion dollars

Confederation Bridge...







and what would a Canadian picture be without ice and snow

And wasn't there the project to connect Sibiria with Alaska with a huge bridge over the Bering Sea? There is even a worse one: the Gibraltar bridge... costs: 15 bio $! But I think the architect, a Chinese named T.Y.Lin died in the meantime.
