Have been over this bridge a few times and always enjoyed the spectacular view. This time went over with a teenager and I saw it through his eyes... It's a fantastic structure and I know you can do tours now which I think would be well worth doing.

The Clifton Suspension Bridge was the second the most impressive thing i've seen in Bristol! To get there is so easily, take a bus or just go for a walk and see other amazing sides of Bristol. The view was great and the story about this bridge was so catching. ´The girl who survived a jump of this bridge long... More

Visited here with my Mum and Dad. It was a nice clear day so able to take in the views. I found the bridge accessible as am an adult in a wheelchair. I would come to the bridge again.

We leave in Bristol but still never fail to enjoy and visit and walk across the bridge! It's got great views but with the tide in! Part of Bristol's history.

Not a lot to say other than we crossed it, and had great viewss to the valley below. Cost is minimal. Pedestrians are free of charge.

We were there to see the Cathedral, and enjoyed this side trip which is not far outside the center of town, up by Clifton.

I have been to see Clifton Suspension Bridge a few times now and always enjoy going on a sunny day and seeing the incredible architecture. There is a lot of grassy area nearby to go and have a picnic and admire the view, which I recommend doing when the weather is nice (although it can get busy at peak times!)... More

Definitely worth a visit :) Not only do you have the bridge but Leigh Woods also, they both go hand in hand you can't have one without the other. If you enjoy photography this place is a must.

Beautifully lit up at night, connecting North Somerset & Avon. Recommend going after 8pm, & parking in a side street & walking over for the views.
