Clifton Suspension Bridge trail for Balloon Fiesta campers! Clifton Bridge and Campingninja

CAMPINGNINJA has joined forces with CLIFTON SUSPENSION BRIDGE to offer campers at the Bristol Balloon Fiesta the chance to explore and find out more about Bristol’s most iconic landmark along a special one off “Fiesta trail”, ABSOLUTELY FREE!

Make a weekend of the fiesta and come and discover how and why this incredible structure was built 75 metres above the Avon Gorge 140 years ago. Discover why the bridge design changed so many times, how daredevil bridge builders managed to get the suspension chains from one side to the other and how it is maintained today at the Clifton Bridge Visitor Centre. And as a special one off pick up the “Fiesta trail” to celebrate 35 years of the biggest annual ballooning event in Europe!

During the fiesta the Clifton Suspension Bridge Visitor Centre will be open at the following times:

10am-5pm daily

However, the Bridge will be closed to all traffic and pedestrians from:

6pm – midnight on Thursday 8th and Saturday 10th August.

Address: Bridge Road, Leigh Woods, Bristol, BS8 3PA The Visitor Centre is situated on the Leigh Woods side of the bridge and is in easy walking distance of Ashton Court.

There are few places where you can catch a better glimpse of the balloons ascending over Bristol so come and pay us a visit at the Clifton Suspension Bridge and make a weekend of the Fiesta - you can book your camping here!
