CLIFTON Suspension Bridge

The Clifton Suspension Bridge high over the craggy Avon gorge in Bristol is a marvel of Victorian engineering, originally designed by Isambard Kingdom Brunel, and took 33 years to build. It was completed in 1864 and, at the time, was the longest and highest span attempted - 702 feet (214m) across and 245 feet (75m) above high tide. It operates as a toll bridge for motor vehicles, but is free for pedestrians. There is a free visitor centre. The bridge is owned and managed by the Clifton Suspension Bridge Trust.
