The Clifton Suspension Bridge is a suspension bridge spanning the Avon Gorge and the River Avon, linking Clifton in Bristol to Leigh Woods in North Somerset. Since opening in 1864, it has been a toll bridge, the income from which provides funds for its maintenance. The bridge is built to a design by William Henry Barlow and John Hawkshaw, based on an earlier design by Isambard Kingdom Brunel. It is a grade I listed building and forms part of the B3129 road.

That's an amazing place with breath taking view though the heights really scares me! A friend called me and we talked for about half an hour. Someone got worried about me and told that to the staff. A guy came to check if I was all right. I thanked him but I was really embarrassed that I caused such trouble and quickly went on the bridge. I felt like there's someone who's ready to fight for my life for the very first time :)) I'm afraid of heights and couldn't walk back to say huge THANK YOU! to the guy who came to talk to me. I was completely fine and I've never been suicidal, but still that touched me deeply :)
A functioning attraction steeped in history. Situated on the Leigh Woods side of the suspension bridge, the free to enter visitor centre contains all of the information you will ever need to know about the construction and history of this spectacular bridge. Run by very friendly and helpful volunteers, there is also a well stocked shop.
This is probably a wonder in civil engineering. One of the oldest suspension bridges in the UK and in the whole world too. The view from atop the bridge into the valley is just breathtaking. Had a great time there moving around and learning new things.
Clifton made for a nice day out. Nice place for a walk and good views from the suspension bridge and nearby observatory. Nice bit of history to learn about the origin/architecture of the bridge too if you like that sort of thing.
What an amazing view! I come to visit this place every time I come to Bristol. The scenery is great, construction is excellent, and it gets even better to look at after dark! Me being in the construction industry makes me appreciate all the brains and engineering behind it all. To others, it’s just a beautiful view!
