I guess at the end of the day, it's a bridge. But the history is interesting and the little 'attraction kiosk' is worth a visit. This time we drove our visitors across the bridge but really best thing to do is walk across. The views...More

Spent a lovely afternoon walking up to and over this fantastic bridge it is a sight not to be missed by any visitor to Bristol. An amazing structure made all the more fantastic when you consider the era it was built.

Well worth a visit free to walk over and a good hour to walk around the museum and read about its history

This is well worth a walk from Bristol, particularly followed up with a return walk along the river, along the old waterfront to Brunel's SS Britain. It's worth crossing the bridge to get an idea of just how high it sits above the gorge below....More

I would rate Bristol above Cheltenham and on a par with Bath for history and attractions but if your schedule is tight then so be it.. As one other person said Bristol is quite a large City and the attractions are spread... More

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.
