Suspension Bridge Road, Leigh Woods, Bristol, Bristol, BS8 3PA

Designed by Isambard Kingdom Brunel, the Clifton Suspension Bridge was to be the highest and longest bridge in the world. The project took 33 years to complete – by which time Brunel was dead. The bridge opened in December 1864 and is celebrating its 150th anniversary year.

In December 2014, a brand new Visitor Centre opened at the Clifton Suspension Bridge. With a larger exhibition and more objects on display, it is open from 10am – 5pm daily and entry is free of charge. During this event, you will have a chance to see parts of the Suspension Bridge collection, not usually on display to the public and discover stories from the last 150 years. This is a drop-in activity – you may have to wait for a place to become available. Event not suitable for children under the age of 7.

This event took place in September 2015 and the entry is now archived.
