View and history combination.

Wonderful to walk across and enjoy the view and to feel part of its history. Interesting for everyone. Seeing the area from a totally different perspective.

As I was in Bristol it seemed rude not to take a look at this famous bridge. The toll is just £1 and you can park up on the road and walk across, the views are pretty awesome. There's a visitor centre that displays the history of the bridge including the other designs that didn't make it! Has a handy... More

The Clifton Suspension Bridge is a wonderful example of early Victorian engineering - opened in 1864. As you wander about to take in views from several different aspects you realise what a great feat this was at a time when, compared with today, there was not the range of heavy machinery or computer modelling available to aid in its construction....

You can drive over this amazing small fee toll bridge .If on foot you can walk up a hilly area and see picturesque sights and grand view of this bridge by Isambard Brunel.You will definitely love it as during the warmer days you linger around to enjoy ice cream from a small shop.Some seating areas around.

A great piece of architecture, and stunning views over the surrounds. The area is also lovely for a wander on a Sunday morning, lots of interesting things to discover :)

As you approach the bridge, the views are spectacular not only of the bridge but down into the gorge below. An amazing example of engineering and the whole area around on either side of the bridge is brilliant, especially the Clifton side with its little, independent shops, beautiful buildings and Christ Church.

I Have been a few times and it is an amazing bridge but some of it was under construction. perfectly understandable but would look even better when back to normal. Great views and even better in the evening when everything is lit up!

Being a bit of a bridge enthusiast (not to be confused with the card game!) I was not let down by what I saw. Great view.

This is the symbol of the city of Bristol. For almost 150 years this Grade I. listed structure has attracted visitors from all over the world. Amazing......For me this bridge is a miracle. I close my eyes and I see the past. There is the Avon without the bridge, the people wearing old clothes, sheep and cows everywhere. Perhaps the... More
