Clifton Suspension Bridge is maintained by a Charitable Trust that relies on the support of the public. We receive no funding from either Bristol City Council or North Somerset Council, using the income from bridge tolls to fund our maintenance programme. The Trustees and Bridgemaster would consider requests for filming and events on the bridge on an individual basis, depending on their imact to bridge users and the ongoing maintenance of the bridge.

Bungee Jumping and Abseiling

Due to the many visitors constantly on the Bridge and for the safety of ALL its users and staff the Clifton Suspension Bridge Trust refuses all such requests without exception. Local byelaws for the Bridge also make these activities illegal.



It is not permitted to attach signs or banners to the bridge.
