Britain from A to Z - B

Today we look at the letter B with a mixture of old and new, country and city, England and Scotland.

To begin with we take a look at The Bridge of Sighs, no, not the one in Venice, but The Bridge of Sighs in Oxford.

Bridge of Sighs.
The bridge is often referred to as the Bridge of Sighs because of its supposed similarity to the famous Bridge of Sighs in Venice. However, Hertford Bridge was never intended to be a replica of the Venetian bridge, and indeed it bears a closer resemblance to the Rialto Bridge in the same city. It is a skyway joining two parts of Hertford College over New College Lane in Oxford, England.

Birmingham Library towering over the Christmas Market. The Library of Birmingham is situated on the west side of the city centre at Centenary Square, beside the Birmingham Rep (to which it connects, and with which it shares some facilities) and Baskerville House. Upon opening on 3 September 2013, it replaced Birmingham Central Library. The library, which is estimated to have cost £188.8 million, is viewed by the Birmingham City Council as a flagship project for the city's redevelopment. It has been described as the largest public library in the United Kingdom, the largest public cultural space in Europe, and the largest regional library in Europe. 2,414,860 million visitors came to the library in 2014 making it the 10th most popular visitor attraction in the UK.
