This was my second time visiting the bridge and it is as spectacular as I remembered. Love it for being so different from the other bridges. You can park nearby without having to pay but will have to pay £1 as off tomorrow if you want to cross it by car (until today was £0,50). Bikes and pedestrians don't pay.... More

Kids enjoyed driving over the bridge. Paid the toll to drive over and back to say we did it but walking over the bridge would be better as you could take your time.

Beautiful during the day and very romantic at night. I enjoy strolling through the bridge looking at the beautiful lights and very proud to take visitors when hosting.

We went in the rain, but this didn't stop us appreciating the splendid architecture and views. Just a short walk across the Bridge so it's do-able for everyone. Then afternoon tea in a nearby hotel with great views of the Bridge.

love the bridge and visiting it at night is a must. I suggest you travel via Clifton across the bridge by car stopping on either side to marvel at it. Then take a left on the opposite side of the bridge and spiral down the hill to take another look from the Avon gorge.

I visited Clifton frequently during university in the UK. It's a long climb but totally worth it. There's a park and a stone slide and a tower, beautiful scenery with fresh air.

A full day out strolling around pretty Clifton village and the suspension bridge grounds. Lovely bistros and pavement coffee shops to experience. Parking is limited so enjoy a bus ride from city centre or put on your walking shoes and take in Ashton Court Park at the same time.
