Very well done small exhibition, each section short and interesting to read. Lots pictures, some kids interactive parts. 30 mins ideal ... But do visit.

This bridge is well worth a visit. We enjoyed great views of it from near the Avon Gorge Hotel before making the brief walk up to the bridge. Although perfectly secure, the walk across the bridge does need people to have at least a steady head for heights! Again, great views are provided in all directions and especially looking down...

Interesting architecture. If you are in Bristol I think you have to know that bridge. If you are driving and to cross the bridge you have to pay a troll.

A great place to go and wonder across and visit Clifton. Look at all the wonderful house and absorb how Bristol was built on great wealth. Easy to park but remember to get a ticket even on Saturday afternoon.

I have often walked across clifton bridge. It is excellent, as I am not an adept climber and am very scared of heights (even the walk across the bridge is a bit scary). If it was not for this bridge I would not be able to cross the Avon Gorge so easily. Thank you brunel xx

My first time driving over the bridge after living in the area for years, walked back to the visitor centre and spent an hour looking at the history of this feat of engineering, great views down the gorge
