The Bristol Bridge is a bridge that spans the floating harbour in Bristol. The floating harbour is located in the same waterway as original River Avon. The first incarnation of the Bristol Bridge was built in the 13th century, and has been refurbished several times since then. The bridge served as a main transportation path during World War II.
The incredible architecture of the Bristol Bridge has made it an icon of the area. Guided tours offer visitors a chance to get an up close look at the structure and learn about its construction and history. Unmatched views of the Avon Gorge and the city from the center of the bridge take visitors breath away. At the visitor center located at the Leigh Woods end of the bridge, learn how to take an audio tour using your smartphone and view collections of historical items relating to the bridge itself.
