Covering the history, construction and maintenance of the iconic Clifton Suspension Bridge, our free tours are provided by knowledgeable volunteer guides. Tours last between 45 minutes and an hour and begin at the Clifton Toll Booth on the Bristol side of the bridge, crossing over the bridge and finishing at the Visitor Centre (free entry, donations welcome). Everyone is welcome and content is family friendly.
There's no need to book: you are welcome to simply turn up. However, if you would prefer to reserve a place and set your itinerary, prebooking is available during the school summer holidays only (27th July-1st September) - collect a free ticket from Eventbrite.
Meet your guide (easy to spot in orange high-vis) at 3.00pm every Saturday, Sunday and bank holiday afternoon at the Clifton Toll Booth, close to Clifton Village at the Bristol end of the Bridge.
What you need to know
At the end of the tour, your guide may ask for donations. All money recieved goes toward the work of the Clifton Suspension Bridge Charitable Trust - keeping our Visitor Centre free and accesible to all and providing science and engineering activities and resources for families and schools. Thank you for your kind support.
The free tour does not visit any of the 'hidden' areas of the bridge: to access the Leigh Woods Vaults you will need to book a space on a paid hard hat tour.)
Bringing a large group? Private tours are available for large organised groups and coach parties. Please contact us to make arrangements before your visit.
