It is great that they do a free guided tour of the bridge. Even being locals we learnt a lot and saw details we had never seen before.

The suspension bridge is always one of the highlights when we visit Bristol. The views are superb and we popped into the visitor centre which had a lot of useful information and great gifts.

It's really high!! Well worth a visit just for the thrill of walking across it. Also the visitor centre gives a really interesting history of the bridge and Brunel.

Visited the bridge with our 2 kids, were suitably impressed with the grandeur of it all. Great views of the Avon River and the gorge also, and great walks at the other end in Leigh woods

A must when visiting Bristol. Great views of the city, had a lovely walk to the place and enjoyed staying there to appreciate the view and calmness. There could be someone to guide you through its history though. Do go you won’t regret it.

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.
