You cannot help but be blown away by the amazing engineering and phenomenal views that you experience on the bridge. One of the massive highlights of the city. Take a picnic and sit on the greens surrounding the bridge.

The bridge and the river are awesome to see. The park that is just next to it is what completed the visit. It was a beautiful day, so am definitely glad we visited.

.Well worth a visit as long as you like heights. New visitor centre is in early stages of construction and will make a big difference to the experience. Make sure that you also walk upto the observatory on the downs adjacent to the bridge where you can visit the caves.(at a cost).

This is such a famous bridge, you have to come and see it, walk across and take an extra bit of time to check out the observatory above.

Whilst in Bristol I had chance to drive under the Clifton bridge. The views from under it were great. I also had the chance to walk over it and the views from on the bridge were even better. I would recommend a walk across the bridge.

Well worth a visit , remember though how long this structure has been standing. An awful lot of people have used this structure as an entry into the next world. Clifton village is on the Bristol side of the bridge and there are some reasonable eating and drinking places here.

One of Brunel's masterpieces. A stroll over the bridge is a must so long as you don't mind heights. Gives you a great view over a part of Bristol.

This bridge represents Bristol encapsulating the history of our engineering and maritime traditions. The best time is early evening as the lights go on, but for the best views choose a sunny day -- or wait until the Balloon Fiesta for a ring side perspective of the rising capsules!!
