It's a real pleasure to walk over the bridge followed by a slide down the slippery slope, admiring the fantastic structure and the magnificent views over the river. We were lucky to be there at sunny day, and it was a perfect way to spend...More

A great place, parking can be tough so research ahead. Walk over the hill at the top for the best views. Breathtaking. Toilets at one side of the bridge.

A must see place to visit! The views are stunning and is the observatory. If walking from the riverfront, it’s quite a climb uphill as we found out.

Interesting history of the Brunel’s bridge. Great to experience walking over the bridge and along the conversatory near by.

A visit at night when the bridge is lit up is quite beautiful. We drove underneath and over the bridge twice, just because we could! Absolute genius piece if engineering and worth look just for a photo at least. Small toll fee...maybe only about 40/50p

I suspect there may be a limit for weight and width. A large van may be allowed but I would check for anything bigger, and would avoid if driving an articulated lorry.

Hi, It's a 5 minute walk. There's no doubt though that you'll want to stop to take pictures etc :-)

Bridge is free to cross on foot and £1 by car. Parking varies as there are some spots where you can park free but others are pay and display. You would have to view from the Portway to see it from underneath looking up.
