We caught a no. 9 from the centre of Bristol but got off beyond our destination (at the zoo). Led by an inveterate 'always get lost traveller' we ended up virtually beneath the Bridge by the river. Recovering from his appalling mis-direction, we then scrambled up an old footpath for what seemed an eternity to eventually find a main road... More

There's something ethereal and mesmeric about standing in the middle of Brunel's masterpiece and looking over Bristol & Somerset and possibly towards Wiltshire. It's only a five minute walk each direction - reward yourself with an icecream (at either end). At the Long Ashton side there is a small heritage shop, too.

Really enjoyed the views The sun was shining so everything looked pretty. The play area surrounding the Cliffton village side was great for kids and just playing rounders etc. A great area for families.

I have driven over the bridge on many occasions but this time I had time to stop and walk over it. It's great to be rewarded with a stunning view of the Avon Gorge. Brunels engineeing is breathtaking especially the chains supporting the whole structure. It would be great to combine a visit with a picnic on the Downs or... More

Must visit if you're in the Bristol area! I live 2 minutes walk from the bridge and it never gets boring! Especially on a summers evening.

Absolutely breathtaking. Free to wonder back and forth to your hearts content, £1 for cars. Spectacular views and beautiful grounds surrounding the bridge, plenty of benches and places to picnic. We wondererd around for ages within the grounds and watched them turn on the lights and stayed until the sun set.

This still stands proud as one of Brunels finest creations and I love the design it is so much a part of Bristol. Each side of the bridge has stunning buildings and greenery perfect for families.
