We walked across the bridge admiring the views of Bristol. The visitor centre is staffed with very friendly people and tells the story of the bridge really well. We then walked back to Clifton on the other side ~ again some amazing views.

I just drive past through the bridge, paying £1 toll charges and stopped otherside and walk along. There was viewing platforms in both sides of the bridge giving fabulous views.

A visit to Bristol must include a trip to the bridge. It's a master piece of Victorian engineering, set in a rugged setting.

Didn't go with a tour company just rocked up. Stunning views that are breath taking. There a £1 toll either side but SO worth it!

Only costs £1 (toll) which makes it worth the visit. The views are incredible and the building amazing to understand how it was constructed.

This amazing bridge oversees the city in all its splendour. Crossing it on foot is free with a car u pay 1£ one way. Do visit the visitors Center the staff is friendly and helpful and it's nice for kids also. Do take the time to go to the observatory to get an even better view of the bridge.

Do not miss the visitor centre prior to crossing the bridge, which means you must get to Leigh Woods side first. Swot up. It's like having a crush on someone, getting to know about your interest, then walk across. Wow!!! It is approximately 235 feet to the water below.
