Brunel is a major part of history of this country and this bridge is a wonderful example. It's not a long bridge so it is very easy to walk across for the view on either side.

An amazing achievement. Brilliant walk across, fantastic views and FREE so good value for money. Takes about 30 mins and definately worth a stop. If you want to go, just head for the bridge by car and look for on street parking either side. There is a £1 toll to pay each time you cross by car.

One of Bristol's best landmarks, Bristol Suspension Bridge, built by Isambard Brunel. Worth a visit. Good views from the bridge in both directions. And a lovely back drop to photos of The Bristol Balloon Fiesta.

Iconic Brunel designed landmark, that is a must for your Bristol Itinerary. Get there via the No. 8 bus from town, but remember that the return is best on the No.9, as both go on a circular route via the outer limits of the city. While in Clifton don't miss the arcade and take in the view from the Avon... More

Each time I visit Bristol (admittedly 2 years since previous visit), I make a point of crossing this magnificent piece of Brunel's engineering.

Brunels most accesible creation. Spectacular setting over the highest part of the Clifton Gorge. The view from South Bristol looking Northwest is fantastic. Also can be viewed from the Towpath down below beside the Avon river.

To the top, don't turn round the walk is well worth it. We decided to walk from the harbour side thinking it was a stroll away !! Hey ho, the bridge was well worth the climb and a great photo opportunity . Out descent took us in the harbour side walk, which I would also highly recommend ;)
