    Spanning the spectacular Avon Gorge, Clifton Suspension Bridge is one of Bristol's most iconic landmarks. The bridge has been a toll bridge since it opened in 1864, connecting Clifton to Leigh Woods. The bridge was designed by William Henry Barlow and John Hawkshaw, based on earlier drawings by Isambard Kingdom Brunel.

    The bridge costs £1 for vehicles. Cyclists can ride across fo free.

    No parking so best to visit by bike or foot. The bridge spans the picturesque Avon Gorge and is one many symbols of the city of Bristol.
