It may not sound like a must do sort of thing but Clifton Bridge is a beautiful spectacle, designed back in 1864 by a great Victorian engineer Isambard Kingdom Brunel the bridge now offers a spectacular setting on the cliffs of the Avon Gorge. Sadly the designer behind the project never got to see it completed due to financial difficulties the project was stalled in which time he passed away, in his memorial the bridge was finished.
