Took a US colleague there last night to experience the magic of IKB and to show him a cathedral of engineering. Stretching out the mist it's still majestic.

Need I say more? Beautiful piece of engineering brilliance with stunning views to match. Not so much an attraction in its own right as a beautiful part of a spectacular landscape.

I was there with my sister and I like it! The view is very nice. I was there during the day and I regret that I didn't be there in the evening.

Fascinating - good views - its higher than I expected. The info station on the far side is worth a visit - some interesting info on its construction and alternatives that were considered.

Cannot fault this glorious bridge, awesome in day but spectacular at dawn and dusk. Visitor centre has info on the opposite side from Bristol side. A true symbol of Bristol :3

The Clifton Suspension Bridge is a great place to visit. From the nearby cliffs, one can look out over the bridge and down to the river below. Crossing the bridge, the course of the river can be followed from the city centre onward towards the coast. The bridge is a triumph of 19th century engineering design, created by the master,... More
