It would be criminal to visit Bristol without going to see the iconic Suspension Bridge. Free to walk across, with fantastic views of the Gorge and South Bristol.

This is a special place with great views of the River Avon far below with cliffs on one side and the city on the other. Some great views of Regency houses in Clifton.

Parking in Bristol / Clifton is a bit of a nightmare. You could try using the Avonmouth Park & Ride just off Jct 18 of the M5. The frequent "bendy buses" then take you along the Portway through the Avon Gorge and under the... More
