We couldn't visit Bristol without travelling over this amazing bridge. An excellent example of British architecture, well worth a walk across and the visitor centre is an added bonus.

If you want to visit the centre, and need a bus, then take the 1, 2, 8 or 9, which all go to the centre. Same buses obvioulsy back up to Clifton.
