Park at Seawalls, Durdham which is right next to the Gorge. On the top of the Gorge you'll find Iberis sempervirens (Perennial Candytuft). Walk towards the Suspension bride and then turn left down the road. A few hundred yards you'll see an opening/footpath on your right again leading towards the direction of the suspension Bridge. Go in there and look to you right.
Find a big slab of sloping rock at the top of which grows Arabis scabra (Bristol Rockcress), Cerastium pumilum (Dwarf Mouse-ear) and Potentilla tabernaemontani (Spring Cinquefoil).
Back to the path, continue along and make your way right through woods at the bottom of part of the cliff. Carex humilis (Dwarf Sedge) and Trinia glauca (Honewort)on the rocks.
