Bridges Street (必列者士街) is a 300-metre two-way street in Sheung Wan, Hong Kong.

Location[edit]

On the east, the street intersects Shing Wong Street and Staunton Street. On the west, it intersects Square Street. The west side of the street ends with a staircase which connects Tai Ping Shan Street. Therefore, to go to Hollywood Road, drivers must drive back to Aberdeen Street.

Naming[edit]

Its name comes from William Thomas Bridges, a British lawyer, Acting Attorney General and Acting Colonial Secretary, who was active in Hong Kong from 1851 to 1861.[1][2][3] Bridges was an old friend[citation needed] of Sir John Bowring, the 4th Governor of Hong Kong. The law firm established by Bridges later became known as Deacons.[4]
