Their website offers fascinating facts about Bristol’s iconic structure and plenty of historical information alongside teaching resources for home-schoolers and historical information for armchair tourists and local history fans. Plus, families can find a whole page dedicated to lockdown resources.
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!
Or book a ticket to explore Brunel’s hidden vaults on a hard hat experience. These tours 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.
