What you'll do

From Brunel's Suspension Bridge to Birdcage Walk, discover the many hidden stories held in the streets of Clifton.

Here's a new walking experience from Show of Strength revealing the extraordinary people behind the elegant facades. Fabulous buildings, scenery and stories: a jilted barmaid’s brush with death, a runaway Empress, the only forger sentenced to death to keep his head and have it on a banknote... And the Georgian terrace that housed the Holy Grail. Starting and ending in the village, Clifton will never look the same again.
