One of the world's great bridges, spanning the picturesque Avon Gorge, known as Brunel's 'first child'. For almost over 150 years, this Grade I listed structure has attracted visitors from all over the world.

The basic tour is free, but they also have a 'Leigh Woods Vaults Tour' which is pretty impressive and has a small fee. The Vault tours sell out during the summer so click on Book Now to book in advance. 

They happily cater to large groups, but only if a timeslot has been booked in advance - contact to make a reservation.

This is one of our top '101-Must-Visit' locations for Bristol, and arguably all of England.
