Clifton Suspension Bridge is the most Instagrammable place in Bristol and the seventh most popular place for photos in the whole of the UK! Make sure you get your photograph in front of the best view, whether that’s at sunrise or sunset.
The Clifton Suspension Bridge Visitor Centre is funded entirely by your donations, ticket sales and sales from the Visitor Centre shop. Pick up a postcard, book, souvenir, ice cream and plenty more. Plus, use our free Wifi or buy a coffee from the Chapter & Holmes Coffee Cart, trading throughout the summer.
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.
The Visitor Centre can be found on the North Somerset (Leigh Woods) side of the bridge. We are currently open 10am – 5pm every day during half term and weekends over the winter, as well as 11am – 3pm on Mondays and Fridays. Pre-booking is advised.
The Visitor Centre is currently closed due to national lockdown.

We recommend that you begin your visit in Clifton Village, cross the bridge and take in the views before you arrive at our Visitor Centre. If you are staying in Bristol City Centre, travel by bus or follow the Avon Trail riverside and woodland walk.
If you're visiting with your family, we have plenty of activity ideas for you to do before your visit, at the bridge or once you've returned home.
