Group and coach visits to Carrick-a-Rede

A new visitor management model is in operation to manage the recent increase in visitor numbers to this iconic attraction.

A timed ticket system has been introduced to ensure we continue to provide a quality visitor experience, reduce waiting times to cross the bridge, comply with necessary conservation requirements and ensure the health and safety of all visitors.
