We walked there with my wife and it was worth the 60 minutes walk all the way! Nice view, impressive from both the bridge and the hill overlooking the bridge. Not sure if there is much point crossing over though.

Always draws people from all over the world and us locals are no different. Always a marvel of engineering by Brunel some 150 years ago. This bridge straddles the Avon Gorge which is very scenic when the tide is in and when it is not, all you see is a lot of mud! The adjacent visitor centre is definitely worth... More

We enjoyed walking across the bridge and admiring the engineering and the views. It must have been a life-saver all those years ago.

It's a 'must do' if you are in Bristol and not far from the City centre - Take the No.8 Bus up through Clifton Village and if you ask the Driver nicely, he'll tell you where to get off. The Bridge is 5 mins walk away from the Bus Stop.

Went here on a Sunday morning in April, far busier than I had expected. Approached from the south side and was able to park in the side street nearby for free. There is a toll of £1 if you cross the bridge in a car and parking meters on the north side. However it's free to cross on foot or... More

You should not miss this bridge, which is perhaps best viewed from below in the Avon Gorge. Walking across the bridge will give you fantastic views up and down the Avon.
