Commercial Filming or Photography

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. If you would like to film or take photographs on the bridge for commerical use, we offer a competitive scale of charges which we will be happy to discuss with you.


One member of the management team will work with you throughout the process of your filming /photography. Staff will also be on-hand to facilitate on the day. You are welcome to come and meet with us at the bridge prior to your day of filming so that you can make the best use of the location and identify the most suitable points to set up.

Non Commercial Filming or Photography

Visitors are most welcome to use handheld still and video cameras on the bridge. However, if you would like to use a tripod, please talk to a Bridge Attendant and fill in a copy of our Filming Indemnity Form. This is just to ensure that you and other members of the public are safe.
