If you’re visiting the bridge with friends or family, FREE guided tours run at 3pm every Saturday, Sunday and Bank Holiday from Easter to October. You'll find your volunteer guide by the Clifton Toll Booth (Bristol side of the bridge) wearing a high vis jacket. Tours last 45 minutes to 1 hour, finishing at the Visitor Centre on the Leigh Woods (Somerset) side of the bridge. Along the way, you'll find benches to sit on although you will be outside for the duration of the tour, so please dress for the weather!
Hard Hat Tours of the Leigh Woods Vaults run on selected dates between Easter and October. The tours take two hours and include a visit to two of the twelve chambers inside the Leigh Woods Abutment, which were designed by Isambard Kingdom Brunel. For more information and booking, please visit https://www.cliftonbridge.org.uk/visit/events.
Private guided tours are also available for larger groups of all ages. Although you won’t see any parts of the bridge not open to the public, you will enjoy a 45 minute to one hour guided experience as you explore the history of the bridge and its designer Isambard Kingdom Brunel. Clifton Suspension Bridge are used to providing tours for schools covering curriculum topics and groups with specialist interests, so please discuss before your visit about the aspects of the bridge or Bristol that you are most interested in. You'll be matched up with a tour guide who will be able to answer your group's questions, providing the right level of information whether you're after fun facts or technical expertise!
Group tours are available at a small cost per head. Bookings are taken all year round at a time to suit your schedule. Contact Clifton Suspension Bridge to discuss your requirements.
