Explore Bristol on Foot: Clifton

by Julia Killingback and Michael Pascoe

Explore Bristol on Foot: Clifton is a walking tour that takes in Clifton's great mansions built by Bristol's wealthy eighteenth century merchants who lived there in order to escape the noise, dirt (and smells) of Bristol's then tidal harbour. ᅠ


This guide will lead you to many well-known features including the stunning Avon Gorge and ᅠBrunel's world-famous Clifton Suspension Bridge. You can visit the historic and still-operating Camera Obscura; see the once-secretᅠ Rocks Railway; walk the Georgian terraces including beautiful Royal York Crescent; and discover the oldest building of all, now a pub, but once just the humble home of a cliff-top farmer.
