Fantastic place to take the kids. Such an iconic landmark. The day we visited was lovely and sunny so we were able to appreciate the fantastic views at their best. Plenty of free places to park and wander across to the visitor center.

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 lovely walk across with grandchildren who love it, a nice visitors centre and an excellent playground at the Bristol end with an ever present ice cream van.

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.
