Jogged to this bridge when I stayed in Clifton, it is an amazing piece of engineering. Looks great from different perspectives so worth walking around it just to get a real understanding of how majestic it is. Local Clifton area also lovely to visit

Excellent piece of engineering. It is also worth seeing at both high and low tides as the differences are huge. You get good views of Bristol from here. Don't forget to go in the visitor centre on the far side and make a donation.

We went back and forth to and from Bristol Zoo. First time ! Did not know there was a £1 toll and that you had to have exact money. Luckily we did. Very narrow.

We met our tour guide at the Bristol entrance. He was great. Full of interesting and fun facts and interact well with the group throughout the duration of the tour.

Iconic part of Bristol with amazing views across the Avon gorge. Best viewpoint of the bridge itself is from the observatory.

Bridge is free to cross on foot and £1 by car. Parking varies as there are some spots where you can park free but others are pay and display. You would have to view from the Portway to see it from underneath looking up.
