The Clifton Suspension Bridge, designed by Isambard Kingdom Brunel and completed in 1864, spans the Avon Gorge at a height of 245 feet above the River Avon's high water level. The Gorge offers some of the finest panoramic views to be found in any city and the Bridge is used by both pedestrians and motor vehicles.

The prominent Colston Hall in the very centre of the city has recently been renovated as has the immediate area with attractive fountains and plants to match. As well as visiting St George’s, another famous landmark, not to miss, is Bristol Cathedral which originally was an abbey, founded by Augustinian monks in 1140. Henry the VIII granted Bristol a bishopric after the Reformation and the abbey church became Bristol Cathedral.

Goldney House and Gardens in Clifton Wood ( near the Suspension Bridge) were built for the merchant Thomas Goldney in the 18th century. The gardens are beautiful and include a grotto lined with rock crystals known as 'Bristol Diamonds’.
