Well worth a visit for the chance to walk over it giving amazing views of the river. There is a great circular walk over the bridge and down through Clifton.

It is well worth walking the length of the bridge in order to view both banks of the river and the docks.

Superb arts and technology work especially when you think about the period when it was built. To be seen.

Always wanted to walk over Clifton suspension bridge for some strange reason, one off my tick list, I wasn't disappointed the views were outstanding, breathtaking. Would highly recommend on a cold or warm day. Night time was stunning with all the lights. 😁

Well worth a visit especially when it's dark and the bridge is lit. Didn't drive over it but it's £1 toll each way. Easy to walk over and spectacular views.

Impressive and picturesque. Lots of view from on it and around it. Definitely visit Clifton Village while there and make a morning or afternoon trip. Looks amazing lit up at night, too.
