The fingerprints (or blueprints, we suppose) of Isambard Kingdom Brunel are found all over Bristol, but nothing comes close to the Clifton Suspension Bridge on the ‘wow’ scale. Completed in 1864, the bridge is one of England’s most impressive feats of engineering, a spectacular example of ingenuity and detail that stretches some 412 metres across the Avon, connecting Bristol with the village of Leigh Woods. The bridge is one of Bristol’s most iconic landmarks, an almost ubiquitous image that finds its way onto postcards, mugs, tea towels, logos and all the rest, an aesthetically jaw-dropping stunner that continues to act as a toll bridge to this day (£1 per car). Walking across the bridge is an absolute must in Bristol, as is heading down below to get ‘that’ shot of the thing. The top spot in Bristol, for our money.
