Clifton Suspension Bridge

About

A visit to Bristol isn’t complete without a trip across the multi-award-winning Clifton Suspension Bridge. As well as being a sightseeing must-see, the iconic bridge has a Visitor Centre where tourists, families and locals alike can learn when, how and why Isambard Kingdom Brunel’s first bridge was built.

The Visitor Centre is run by a team of friendly volunteers who are happy to share the secrets of Clifton Suspension Bridge’s history with you. Hear about its construction, learn how suspension bridges work, discover unusual objects from the Clifton Suspension Bridge collection and find out how the bridge is maintained today.
