Great for photographs and to admire the local landscape. Walk across and hike up to the viewpoint on the Clifton side of the bridge.

The Clifton Suspension Bridge is a world famous suspension bridge spanning the Avon Gorge and the River Avon, linking Clifton in Bristol to Leigh Woods in North Somerset. There are some lovely independent shops in Clifton.

Bristol with it's history and port area is worthy of a day visit. Include The SS Great Britain and enjoy the view of the Clifton Suspension bridge, or even walk across it !

Bristol can boast some impressive historical landmarks, too, in the shape Brunel’s awe-inspiring Clifton Suspension Bridge.

Besides the SS Great Britain, Brunel is also famous for this stunning feat of engineering. The bridge is best viewed from the top of Observatory Hill or from the Giant's Cave.

Another of Brunel's masterpieces. One of the first suspension bridges in the world spanning the spectacular Clifton gorge.

A bridge where you can see British engineering at its best, easily lasting through the years. You should definitely stop off around here to get a good look at it.

Isambard's creation is so integral to the city of Bristol. Still functioning and as elegant as ever, the locals are rightly proud of this site. There are tours from the guard gate on the Clifton side. Great to visit anytime of day or to see the twinkling lights in the evening. I recommend going to the adjacent park which contains the Victorian 'camera obscura' and the entrance to the caves, it has dramatic views and different angles of the bridge.
