I've always wanted to see this for real and I wasn't disappointed! It's breathtaking! Lovely views from the bridge. It's free to walk or cycle across or £1 toll to drive across.

Speaks for itself. Incredible views, great place to come and chat with a friend, or to just take in the view and have a bit of thinking time. Any visitor to Bristol has got to see it.

The best way to view the bridge is to climb the small hill beside it. Clifton village is a lovely place with lots of F&B outlets

I live in a 'new town' that is being rebuilt after only 45 years. If only engineers of the Victorian age were still about.

My boyfriend and I often visit the hill with a view of the bridge to relax after a stressful day. Breathtaking views.

The bridge is well worth visiting if you are in the Clifton area. The bridge is free to walk across and there is an observation deck. Clifton village is nearby and is packed with nice shops and cafés.

Amazing this was constructed so many years ago and stood the test of time. It is a shame Brunel never got to see it completed. Beautiful views of the Avon gorge. Walk across to enjoy the majestic views. Visitor centre with friendly staff.
