A walk across the bridge to the visitor centre, finding out all about it, great for adults and children (there are fun interactive things for kids to do) and then a walk back across to think on about what you have discovered.

Visited the bridge many times as a child and growing up, but found out so many things about the planning and the construction. Informative and well presented.
