Taxi driver suggested driving under the bridge for a view first and then he took us up top so we could walk over. Some lovely views and great photo opportunities.

A fantastic marvel of British engineering spanning across the beautiful Avon gorge. You get different specifics from different sides and there are some great running spots and views of it from around the Durdham Down area.

Visited here during a weekend stay in Bristol. Certainly worth a visit, amazing views but not for the faint hearted. We did the caves and went to the viewing platform was only £2 and is quite a way down but the views were fantastic and you can get a full view of the bridge.

What an incredible walk and also a magnetic view of the attractive scenery around this bridge.When you actually get to walk it the atmosphere is electrically charged with fresh air and a feeling that you are on top of the world.A magnificent example of history being conquered and being a part of looking around at the sheer detail of how...
