We have been so lucky to be part of Co–op’s Local Community Fund, which has raised an amazing total of £4162 to support our work! As we couldn’t make the instore Payout Celebrations Day last weekend, we invited some of the team to our Visitor Centre for a behind the scenes tour of the Bridge.

Karin, James and Matt met with Hannah Little our Archivist and got to look at some items from our collections, including some original documents, stereoscopes slides through a special Victorian viewer and our very unusual peep egg.

The First World War was a strenuous time on the people of Great Britain and its Government. With pressure rising from Europe and too little volunteers enlisting – the government was called to pass the ‘Military Service Act’. This act of conscription, where men between the ages of 18-41 were legally summoned to be enlisted in the army, affected a humongous amount of citizens. This included Clifton Suspension Bridge Company employee Edward Henry Wood.

We had the pleasure of having Tom Hughes Painting on the Bridge Exhibition up from the 29th September - 7th October. The exhibition focused on Hughes' favourite views of the Gorge, where the light, weather and changing seasons genertate a never-ending supply of images that deserve capturing in oil paint. 

We had over 1300 visitors come and view the exhibition over the week and had 118 competition entries to win the painting 'Gorge Sunbeam, November'. Tom randomly selected a winner and it was Jo Bennet. She was very happy with her prize!

We have a dedicated and passionate team of volunteers who help us run the Clifton Suspension Bridge Visitor Centre. They also guide tours, meet the public on the bridge and support our schools programme. Our volunteers are an integral part of the Visitor Centre and without their commitment we would not able to pass on the story of the bridge to the thousands of people who visit us each year! We would like to send a huge thank you to all of our past and present volunteers.

Recognised as the UK's most dynamic, innovative and coolest city, Bristol is one of the world's top 10 cities to visit. And while it may be the tech and creative industries propelling Bristol forward, the appeal of classic landmarks like the Clifton Suspension Bridge has only increased over the years.

Hello everybody! My name is Tim and I’m from Germany. I’m currently 16 years old and I’m doing a Work Experience here at the Clifton Suspension Bridge for just a week. This work experience was organised by my school in Bremen. Bremen is about the same size as Bristol in North-West Germany and has the same temperature and weather as Bristol. You can go to Bremen’s City Centre for a lot of sightseeing and shopping. Also nearby is the River Weser area, which is also nice for shopping or visiting bars.
