The Clifton Suspension bridge offers probably the most gorgeous views in Bristol, any time of the day. As the view changes with the weather and seasons, it feels fresh and exciting every time. Don't pass the Visitor Centre! The bridge has a very interesting and eventful history and you really don't want to miss the information on the vaults! The... More

Still one of Bristol's famous landmarks due to picturesque setting in Clifton spanning the Avon. Brings back good memories from student days in the 80s. One of the reasons why Bristol will always be my second home...

Fabulous view from Clifton suspension bridge! Would really recommend visiting the bridge if you visit bristol! We also went up into the caves which are situated next to the bridge. That was a bit hairy but worth it to go up and look at the view.

The Clifton Suspension Bridge is a Bristol treasure! I recently went to Bristol for the balloon festival and stood on the suspension bridge watching them all fly past, the view was wonderful.

We love walking to - and over - Bristol Suspension Bridge and last night was no exception. If you time it to walk across as the sun sets on a clear night you won't be disappointed. Looking down the gorge last night, out towards the estuary the whole sky turned orange, then bright pink. It was amazing. A lovely walk... More

The views are lovely and had a lovely walk from one side to the other. There are lots of places to eat nearby.

Don't be lazy and go there on foot by the river! It's not that far from the city centre - 1 hour walk. Important thing - walk on the right side of the river (facing to the bridge) because on the left bank there is no path up and no way of crossing the river - we made that mistake... More

My sister and her family wanted to see the Clifton Suspension Bridge and after 25 years of living in Bristol I'd never been on it so we went for a closer look, Thoroughly enjoyed it and it was not as scary as I'd feared. very glad I went - another item off my bucket list xx
