Bewdley Bridge is a bridge crossing the River Severn in Worcestershire. The bridge was designed by Thomas Telford and constructed in 1798 at a cost of £11,000. The earliest known bridge crossing the River Severn at this point was in 1447. The current route across the bridge is the B4190, though before the town acquired a bypass, the A456 crossed here.

As the River Severn is prone to flooding in this area, the bridge is closed to traffic during periods when the flood defences are in place, traffic wishing to cross the river must use the A456 Bewdley Bypass.
