I loved visiting this historic landmark, there's an information point which you can go inside and learn more about it. The view is amazing and the bridge is well looked after

What an amazing piece of engineering and I am not in to that sort of thing. It is about a 20 - 30 min walk from the town centre through the beautiful Clifton Village. The view of and from the bridge are spectacular.

A mesuem about the history of the bridge right next to he entrance, which is free. We also went to the park which overlooks the bridge. A marvelous piece of engineering which is best to view during the day. There is a toll charge if your driving. Worth the pound just to say you drove on the bridge.

Clifton bridge was amazing. We walked across at night and watched other people's fire work displays. I would 100% recommend going to see the bridge.

It was certainly a great view from the top of the observatory and just outside of it. However when choosing to go down underneath into the caves it's quite steep.

Well worth the walk up from the city centre. The views were amazing and the visitor centre (free admission) was very interesting and informative. The park beside it is also nice to visit and you get great views of the bridge from it too.
