Walk from the harbour through the woods to the suspension bridge is beautiful. Visitors centre is worth the visit. Walk across the bridge and enjoy the high and wide view.

Not much to say of the Suspension bridge really. Go. Just go to it. Walk along it and take in the sights. Return at night and view the same view but admire the lights. It's a Bristol and UK must.

I often walk across here when I need to reflect. Beautiful views. Always worth a trip to the Black Horse in Clapton in Gordano too.

I suspect there may be a limit for weight and width. A large van may be allowed but I would check for anything bigger, and would avoid if driving an articulated lorry.

Hi, It's a 5 minute walk. There's no doubt though that you'll want to stop to take pictures etc :-)

Bridge is free to cross on foot and £1 by car. Parking varies as there are some spots where you can park free but others are pay and display. You would have to view from the Portway to see it from underneath looking up.
