Walked past many times but today decided to pop in and take a look. So glad we did because it really is a lovely, informative little museum which never becomes boring. Obviously the theme is the Clifton Suspension Bridge itself - history, construction and facts...More

OK if u walk through the suspension bridge, you can easily stop by this small museum for more information about the bridge. You can spend as much time you prefer. Good place for families with kids.

Interesting small museum which is worth seeing when visiting the bridge, but not worth a journey in its own right. Refreshments only available at the weekend and then only from an outside cart.

Situated next to the bridge the visitor centre has information, gifts and very friendly staff. If you go to see the bridge you must pop in.

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.

Very informative welcoming staff. Attracts all ages. Caters for all visitors worldwide. Parking up on the Downs. Great photo opportunities of the bridge. Nicely presented in modern building.
