Home > Corporate Hire


The Clifton Suspension Bridge Visitor Centre has two spaces which are available for corporate hire and educational events. Although we do not have a cafe on site, we are able to provide hot drinks and have a recommended local caterer who can provide hot or cold buffet food for your event.


Our Gallery space is open and airy. It has a double height main space with mezzanine level and a viewing window overlooking the Suspension Bridge. Suitable for corporate events, large meetings or presentations. Buffet refreshments can be served separately in the first floor Education Workshop.
