Where can I park when I visit the Clifton Suspension Bridge?
There is a link to a map from the 'Contact Us' page of this website. If you have a 'sat-nav' or GPS the following postcodes may help: Clifton - BS8 4BW, Leigh Woods - BS8 3PA
CLIFTON - was mostly developed in the 18th and 19th centuries, in the days of the horse and cart. It is rich in heritage with a great deal of attractive architecture and pleasant shops. The result is that the area is popular and congested. There are no formal car parks in Clifton village, and there are double yellow lines (= 'No Parking at any time') on the approach to the Bridge in Suspension Bridge Road. 'On-street' parking is available in Clifton but it is not always easy to find a parking space. You are advised to park within the law - parking regulations are enforced by the City Council and a 'Towaway' scheme is in operation. There is one 'Disabled' parking space next to the toll booth.
LEIGH WOODS - parking 'on-street' is easier on this side of the Bridge, and there are fewer formal restrictions. However visitors are kindly requested to park with consideration to our neighbours (eg please do not park on the footpath or block driveways). There is another 'Disabled' parking space next to the toll booth here. The temporary Visitor Information Point is located on this side of the Bridge.
