There are not many cities in the world who boast amazing bridges. Everyone thinks of New York and Sidney, but few think of Bristol, but why not? This iconic structure has a beauty, a romantic feeling to it which the others do not have.

A must see for everyone visiting the South West. Connects yesterday to tomorrow, the left bank to the right and London to Bristol (through its architect).

Its hard to believe they built it in Victorian times. You can't help but be impressed, even today it would not be easy to build it. We paid our one pound toll and drove across, well worth it. Will do it again next time we visit just for the view. It was very well kept and is well worth looking... More

Having visitors from abroad is always an excuse to show them the best bits of our home town. Recently we took some New Zealand visitors to see and walk across the Clifton Suspension Bridge. It was a brilliant idea - they loved it and so did we. The views are amazing - and a good tip (if you have a... More

This is a national treasure. Parking is a struggle, but worth persevering. Stunning views over the gorge and this end of the city. You can walk over the bridge for free to expand the views.

Living close by to the Bridge and it always amazes me that people of all age groups are always looking and taking pictures of my... More
