Smartphone users can now discover and explore the bridge with our new app, Bridge Tales. Available through Google Play and the App Store, the app has been created by film and media students from the University of the West of England who have developed new audio visual content about the bridge, its history, its surroundings and the people who used it.

How to download
Bridge Tales is FREE to download and use. Use the public wi-fi in our new Visitor Centre to download the app by visiting Google Play or the App Store on your phone and searching for 'Bridge Tales' - or simply scan the QR code in our visitor reception.
How to use
Once you've installed the app on your phone, use 'Listen from location' to access a map which will enable you to walk about the suspension bridge and access content in-situ using your data allowance, or 'Listen from Armchair' to see a list of all the content which you can select from wherever you are! We would recommend using 'Listen from location' as each point is linked to a specific view from the bridge (and we'd also suggest using headphones if you have them so you are able to see the screen and hear the audio at the same time).
