Free to cross on foot and the views are amazing. Combine with a visit to the Observatory and shopping in Clifton.

We were a family of four going on a walk having high expectations after hearing great things and it beat all the expectations by far. The view was outstanding and we took some great pictures.

Not to be missed!!! Amazing views & a museum which is free to enter. Walk over the bridge rather than drive for the best views.

It's well worth the little drive over, but bear in.mind you get views but you don't get to see the bridge itself in all its glory, obviously!

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.
