Spent a lovely afternoon walking up to and over this fantastic bridge it is a sight not to be missed by any visitor to Bristol. An amazing structure made all the more fantastic when you consider the era it was built.

If you want to visit the centre, and need a bus, then take the 1, 2, 8 or 9, which all go to the centre. Same buses obvioulsy back up to Clifton.
