Awe inspiring.

How did somebody all that time ago conceive, design and construct this magnificent structure. The history is as stunning as the views you capture.

After driving over the bridge (costs a pound to go over) I parked up in a free 30 minute bay and walked back to view the bridge and take some photos of the stunning scenery. The bridge architecture is amazing and 30 minutes wasn't really quite enough to enjoy the whole thing and walk the whole length of it, but... More

No big charge for the small associated museum just a well deserved donation. Well worth the walk across the bridge to see views.

Walked up to the bridge and along to the first viewing point. Good views, but it's still just a bridge. Iconic part of Bristol though, so had a look.

If you like History, Engineering, and stunning views then visit here. Park on the Clifton Side (Metered on-street parking up to 3 hours I think, and about £1.00 per hour ) and walk across, as the Leigh Woods side has literally no parking. A jaw dropping view greets you, as you cross the Bridge, of the beautiful Avon Gorge and... More

An impressive bridge, it's a shame the visitors centre us so small and half the bridge was shut. We enjoyed the view of the bridge from Clifton and walked along it. It's definitely worth a look whilst in Bath. Easier bus route up would have been good though.

It's a bridge. It goes from one side to the other. If you really need to get to the other side, this is the bridge for you. If you want to get to the bottom, you probably don't want to use this bridge.

Recommended for a pop-in, only needs a short time. A true engineering feat and memorial. Staff were pleasant and friendly. Make sure to walk across the bridge to appreciate it.

The Bridge is well worth seeing when you are in Bristol. Great engineering and fantastic views. The area around it called Clifton is also very attractive

How did they build this with the resources they had in the 19th century. A structural master piece which set the way forward.
