Such beautiful views across Avon Gorge and Leigh Woods. I love going kestrel and falcon spotting there...or for a cheeky ice cream, and a leisurely stroll.

Personally, I recommend a cycle ride or walk along the Western bank of the Avon, or even up a steep path into the ancient Liegh Woods, for wildlife and natural habitat

a must see if visiting Bristol. probably best views are from the Clifton Suspension Bridge, but also nice from Clifton Downs (nice walks there) and from the footpaths on the other side, in the Leigh Woods National Nature Reserve. Look out for Peregrine Falcons!
