My favourite view in Bristol

From the bridge, you can see across the city, but from the Downs, you can really see the bridge. Particularly at night when it's all lit up, it's an all round excellent spot.

Definitely a must-see if visiting Bristol. The bridge is beautiful and you get some of the best views across Bristol.

I go here on a regular basis because I've known it all of my 62 years and yet it never disappoints. I still tremble slightly at the sense of mild vertigo and I always enjoy the views from both sides, one of which includes my house on the dim and distant horizon. It's an engineering marvel and a must see... More

Very well equipped visitors centre, lots of information and interactive displays, it also has the benefit of being free! Toilets are fab as well, much better than the ones on the Clifton side.

No Trip to Bristol would be compete with out visiting "The Bridge". Well worth the walk over and back, the wander the streets of Clifton for food or souvenirs.

I went to Uni in Bristol so every time I go back I make it a habit of going to the suspension bridge (I sound like such an anorak) at night to take photos. Even if you don't like bridges you can appreciate a good view when you see one and it's also a great place to see the stars.

Just had to have a walk across this bridge as it was close to the hotel - its a bit of a stroll uphill if you try to walk it from the centre of Bristol, but if you stay in Clifton or my the University, you are at the right level. Small but interesting visitor centre on the South end... More

£1 to drive across, free to walk across and the Avon gorge scenery is just amazing. We went into the visitor information centre, the information displayed was informative and interesting. From here we picked up a local walk leaflet and took the walk through Leigh Woods, down to the river and back up. We're slow walkers, and it took us... More

As travelers from the US, we enjoy our first visit to the Clifton Suspension Bridge. I admire the construction of it from so many years ago. We had a leisurely walk across it, with many photo opportunities along the way. I hope when we return next time, to once again walk it.
