Hard Hat Tour

Clifton Suspension Bridge Visitor Centre, BS8 3PA

3 Apr - 31 Oct 2024


Fully guided tour of the Clifton Suspension Bridge’s Underground Vaults.

Hard Hat Tour
When construction of the Clifton Suspension Bridge began in 1831, the eyes of the world were on 23-year-old Isambard Kingdom Brunel and his bold plan to build the highest and longest bridge in the world. Many of the bridge’s secrets, like the vaulted chambers sealed inside the abutment, were lost when Brunel died. Join our knowledgeable volunteer guides on a one-hour historical tour through two of Brunel’s twelve vaulted chambers. The tour will begin on the abutment above, then once you’ve descended the ladder your guide will share some of the most interesting features and explain why it took until 2002 for the Clifton Suspension Bridge vaults to be rediscovered.
