Clifton and Durdham Downs, Bristol: 6 reviews and 11 photos
Clifton Suspension Bridge is a must see attraction in Bristol, but I am not sure how many people know that Clifton itself is a must see. It was once a separate municipality from Bristol, one of the oldest and wealthiest areas of the city. Much of its wealth came from profits from tobacco and the slave trade. It was also known as a spa area but later this function was better developed in nearby Bath.
Walking around this hilly area you can enjoy the various housing typologies - from grand houses, to detached and semi-detached properties as well as terraces. Many times between the houses you can see a beautiful view of Bristol that lays downhill from Clifton.
As I was walking around a small squirrel popped from one garden to say hello to me and welcome me to this peaceful neighborhood. She even posed until I took a picture of her.
