One to remember

Didn't go with a tour company just rocked up. Stunning views that are breath taking. There a £1 toll either side but SO worth it!

Only costs £1 (toll) which makes it worth the visit. The views are incredible and the building amazing to understand how it was constructed.

This amazing bridge oversees the city in all its splendour. Crossing it on foot is free with a car u pay 1£ one way. Do visit the visitors Center the staff is friendly and helpful and it's nice for kids also. Do take the time to go to the observatory to get an even better view of the bridge.

Do not miss the visitor centre prior to crossing the bridge, which means you must get to Leigh Woods side first. Swot up. It's like having a crush on someone, getting to know about your interest, then walk across. Wow!!! It is approximately 235 feet to the water below.

Visited as part of a circular walk from the city centre and back via the docks and SS Great Britain. It's a bridge and a view, so far so good,' but make sure you visit the small bit perfectly formed visitor centre on the "country" side of the bridge which is well worth a visit

The very impressive bridge by I K Brunnell lends itself to stunning views of the river gorge. Amazing structure and marvelous on a sunny day

A great experience - a must do whilst in Bristol. A brilliant feat of engineering - where would we be without the great man, Isambard Kingdom Brunel.

Construction goes back to 1843. Great structure. Plan in good weather, but still we loved it under rain and in windy weather. Make sure to pass by the observatory to have a excellent view of the bridge. There is pedestrian path on the bridge.
