Clifton Suspension Bridge

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.

Delve into the story of Brunel's world famous bridge at the Visitor Centre. Explore the rock chambers that support the Leigh Woods tower on free tours of the Vaults (10am, 11am, 12pm, 2pm, 3pm, 4pm. Restricted accessibility – see website for more information).

This event took place in September 2016 and the entry is now archived.
