This tour does require all participants to cross the Clifton Suspension Bridge. The tour will start on the Clifton side of the bridge and finish at the visitor centre.
If your group is larger than 25, we will split into smaller groups and start at staggered points.
We will give the group health and safety instructions about crossing the bridge in advance.
You are welcome to take photographs throughout your visit. We’d love you to share pictures of your school trip with us on social media.
This tour can be adapted to fit your topics needs and requirements.
