As travelers from the US, we enjoy our first visit to the Clifton Suspension Bridge. I admire the construction of it from so many years ago. We had a leisurely walk across it, with many photo opportunities along the way. I hope when we return next time, to once again walk it.

Great bridge that's free to walk across, ideal at sunset and lovely views down the river into Bristol. Perfect end to a day with very nice cafes and restaurants in the local area

Once you've seen a bridge, you've seen thousands! I will say, the bird watching opportunities were fantastic!! I did clout my head with my binoculars however, and no one would help me down!! Not very civil!

The height above the River Avon offers wonderful views... More

We were staying at wells and drove to the Clifton suspension bridge .we had always said that we would drive across with our roof down in our convertible VW. We did it and also visited the information centre which was brilliant.well worth the visit and the £1 dive across was amazing .great views and a picture opportunity.
