The Clifton Suspension Bridge, spanning the beautiful 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. Its story began in 1754 with the dream of a Bristol wine merchant who left a legacy to build a bridge over the Gorge.

GUIDED TOURS of the Bridge by knowledgeable staff, many of whom are also 'Blue Badge' Registered Tourist Guides are available at any time by arrangement.

Free guided tours for the public operate every Sunday at 3.00pm Easter-September. Meet/start at the toll booth at the Clifton end of the Bridge.
