I would say if you're visiting Bristol this is one of the places you should visit. This part of Bristol is much nicer than the centre. Wonderful views of the bridge when you walk up to the observatory. You don't have to pay to go up the observatory to get the views

Stunning suspension bridge that is best enjoyed at the top of the hill near the observatory or on the terrace of the nearby white lion pub.

Walking up from Spike Island is a bit challenging but the view of the bridge spanning the Avon Gorge is worthwhile, even on a cloudy winter day

Gets you over the river successfully, hasn't collapsed yet, Brunel seems like a spot on guy. If there is any negative I can give it's that Bristolians really do like talking about this bridge, but I can't blame them really, it's a good bridge

Even by today's standards the massive scale and visionary scope of the Brunel-designed bridge are hugely impressive. But that it was finished (not by Brunel unfortunately) with construction technology that was really in its infancy is truly amazing. It set the standard - and provided the template for suspension bridges across the planet. Britain really was leading the world in engineering in the 19th Century.
We should take heart from Brunel and the great Victorian innovators - it's time to get the wheels back on the wagon!
