Crossing the Clifton Bridge
Bristol’s Clifton Suspension Bridge, spanning the Avon Gorge and the River Avon and linking Clifton in Bristol to Leigh Woods, is considered a masterpiece of design and serves internationally as the city’s emblem. Its massive and awe inspiring wrought iron structure will surely enthuse you and is by far Bristol’s most impressive site. So, no matter how long you are planning to stay, make sure crossing the Clifton Bridge is among your top priorities.
Lazing in Bristol’s Gardens & Parks
Bristol has been described as a “city in the countryside”, teaming with parks and gardens (more than 400!) which are just ideal for spending a romantic afternoon with your sweetheart or a lazy day with your family and friends.
Castle Park, Brandon Hill, Queen Square and Clifton Downs are just the most prominent options, while Bristol Zoo Gardens is home to countless exotic animals – a favorite of kids and families. The Downs, described as the city’s lungs, attracts all sorts of people from dog walkers to sports enthusiasts while the Sea Wall, in the southwest, is the ideal spot for some jaw – dropping views of the Avon Gorge and the Clifton Bridge.
Another great option is Brandon Hill Park; after climbing the notorious spiral staircase all the way to the top of Cabot Tower, you will catch the best view of the entire city.
