I went there for a business trip and was very surprised of everything Brunel had accomplished. The Clifton Suspension Bridge is fully part of this astonishment.

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.
