I can't ever imagine visiting the bridge when in Bristol. A magnificent piece of engineering offering terrific views of Bristol, plus close to the downs always lovely for a picnic or stroll.

Amazing views from bridge over city & countryside. As it became darker the whole panorama was illuminated. Walked both ways safely!

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.
