Fantastic Views from Bridge
Jun 2021 • Couples
We did a circular walk from the harbour and up a footpath next to a main road. The bridge has fantastic views and is currently operating a one way system (one direction on each side). Worth walking over this iconic bridge if visiting Bristol.

George-ous gem.
May 2021
Beautiful gem frequented by the more gentle minded. Just wish the chavs didn't know about it, hence the copious amounts of lager littler left behind on warm summer nights. So glad there's not a Costa on it.

Stunning, Covid safe. A must visit
Jun 2021
We walked along the Avon on the far side of the river. Cut up through a wooded area to the bridge and crossed over into Clifton. A lovely walk!
One way each side for pedestrians so felt extra covid safe.
Beautifully kept bridge, really impressive.

A Must See

The staff were really nice and the museum was really information and a must do if your doing Bristol. We bought the guidebook but the information in the museum is sufficient.

Great Engineering
May 2021 • Couples
A wonder of the master builder Brunel. British engineering at its best. It looks just as good as the day it opened and can be viewed from several locations.

Wonderful piece of engineering
May 2021
We went to look at this in the pouring rain and it still looked beautiful. We would have liked to walk across it but the weather was horrendous. However, it was great to see it in all it's glory. You can park the car nearby and walk up through the gardens to get a good view. There is a cafe up there and a viewing point (not sure if the latter is open yet due to COVID). Well worth a visit to see this magnificent piece of engineering.
