Travelers to Bristol looking for an unforgettable experience to remember their vacation by need look no further than the famous Clifton Suspension Bridge. Perhaps one of the most thrilling sites in all of the United Kingdom, the Clifton Suspension Bridge is a massive structure spanning the Avon Gorge. Originally commissioned in 1830, the bridge was in fact not actually built until after the death of the appointed architect, in 1864.
Today, the bridge sees a lot of traffic, over 12,000 cars each and every day. As such, it remains an accessible and popular tourist attraction both as an architectural marvel and for the amazing panoramic view of the Gorge that is affords travelers. The bridge is classified as a Grade I listed structure and is thus immune to demolition. Guided tours of the area are available, as well as personal photo opportunities, and the bridge maintainers even have a gift shop where one can buy souvenirs to commemorate their experience.
