Lovely iconic bridge. A big part of Bristol's heritage, definitely worth a visit on a hot summers day if you're in the area!

I just love the view of the bridge. I could never get bored of the wonderful structure. Hope the price doesn't go up anymore for cars, I know it needs to be kept in the good condition it is but I want to enjoy driving across without it hitting the bank!

A true marvel although when visiting it was a windy and rainy day we didnt get to see it up close we were on a bus sight seeing tour that unfortunately didnt let you off the bus to take photographs.

One of our famous landmarks. Take a walk over the bridge and stop to look down the gorge, it is amazing.

Go on a sunny day ! Take a good camera , have a good look around - have a look down , but equally look up and see a major piece of British engineering in all its glory

The bridge is being refurbished at present, but for a £1 take a drive across and see how fantastically this bridge was built. Britain should be proud of its great engineers.

Stunning bridge. It really is a masterpiece. Nearly gave it a 5. I would have given it a nine out of ten if I could have or a 4 and a half. Walk along both sides and then go up to the observing point at one end. By then, you should have some great photos. Bristol should be proud

Looking at it from afar - amazing and being on it - amazing! Don‘t like the toll but got to preserve these treasures somehow.

We walked across the bridge and the views are simply stunning, you can see for miles. We'd also been to the zoo and so we'd walked from there and it's a lovely walk. You can also go to the observatory which is near the bridge. It's well worth going to, it's free to walk across and it's £1 for cars... More
