Iconic bridge by Brunel is a free "must have" for visitors to Bristol who like to photograph. It is illuminated at night. Small fee to cross the bridge with a vehicle.

What a brilliant piece of engineering. This bridge is beautiful and makes a great photo opportunity. Well worth looking out for if you are in the area. I have seen many sights around the world and this one stands out amongst the crowd.

Looking accross and spanning the gorge this is a great place to get your bearings and have a wander. The visitor centre has some interesting info on its history and construction and is worth a look.

Worth seeing and worth photographing. We didn't travel across it, but it looked very impressive from the road.
