Clifton Suspension Bridge

The symbol of the city of Bristol!


The Clifton Suspension Bridge, spanning the picturesque Avon Gorge, is the symbol of the city of Bristol. For almost 150 years this Grade I listed structure has attracted visitors from all over the world. The bridge joins Bristol and North Somerset and is owned and operated by Clifton Suspension Bridge Trust. It is entirely funded by tolls - which have paid for its upkeep since it first opened to the public on 8th December 1864.

Open and manned 24 hours a day, 7 days a week throughout the year. Visitors are welcome at any time and our Visitor Centre (in Leigh Woods), open from 10am to 5pm every day (excluding Christmas and New Year).

Enjoy spectacular views across the ancient Avon Gorge and the informative visitor centre. For families, there is a free Family Trail, which you can follow from the Visitor Centre at Leigh Woods across the bridge to Clifton Village. It's full of fascinating facts and a great activity full of fresh air. From Easter, to October there are free guided tours at 3pm every Saturday, Sunday and Bank Holiday.
