We were lucky to be staying close to it, and the surrounding area is very attractive, with pubs and benches to hand. The bridge itself is dramatic, with amazing views and undeniable vertigo effects for some! But the walk across is a must, and lots of photo opps present themselves.

We travelled to Clifton village via the City Tour Bus (hop on, hop off) and walked to the bridge then across it to the visitor centre on the opposite side. All very interesting and some spectacular views from the bridge itself. IK Brunell was a genius of his time. He would have bee a genius had he lived in this... More

I have walked over and around this national treasure several times, always in complete awe. On a recent visit to Bristol with my wife in the car, I purposefully used the A369 off the M5. The delight shone from her face when we appeared at the start of the bridge and crawled along its length taking in the views. Well... More

You need to see this bridge to believe it. We walked across it and loved every minute. We sat on the grass overlooking it and had a picnic. Very memorable.

The brilliantly designed bridge is still in full use and my regular route into Bristol. A must see and travel over.

This is a must - see sight in Bristol. The views are gorgeous and it doesn't take much time to get the full experience. The entire area around the bridge is inviting. If you want to relax, it is a good place for a picnic. Close by, there are good eating establishments that offer both indoor and outdoor seating.
