Tavy Bridge is a railway bridge across the mouth of the River Tavy just east of its confluence with the River Tamar.

It was built c1890 by the Plymouth, Devonport and South Western Junction Railway (PDSWJ) to carry the line from St Budeaux to Bere Alston, now part of the Tamar Valley Line.

The centre of the bridge is made up of eight iron tied-arch sections supported by seven pairs of cast iron pillars.

To north and south, sections of stone arch connect the centre section to the shore, two arches to the north and seven to the south.
