Bristol Travel Guide You Need At Every Step
Bristol is all about Banksy, budding DJ’s, boutiques, bookstores and all things beautiful. Enter this city to be charmed at how good they are at recycling…shipping containers are recycled into shops and an old police station becomes an event venue. Stare at the fine art at Arnolfini and wake up your inner scientist at We the Curious and admire the city’s shipping history and a guided tour of the Harbourside.
Bristol spills over with attractions like Clifton suspension bridge, Bristol Zoo, Blaise Castle House museum, Wookey Hole, Downs Parklands and umpteen museums and galleries. When you are done with immersive experiences on the SS Great Britain Harbourside and Spikes Island…take a walk along its streets to appreciate the street art of Banksy (Bristol has the world’s best street art).
The City is a hub of designers, artists, musicians and club D.J’s who all specialise in one thing that Bristol sports in abandon…distinct style. This is why while pub hopping you are more likely to go into small clubs in nooks than look for large branded clubbing zones.
Shopping is best done in the scores of curio shops and little boutiques than in malls and even the best food is served in standalone organic food specialising restaurants. Bristol, Bath and Somerset are a lovely trio of historical and natural attraction filled destinations and the best of West England can be accessed once you are in here.
The city has great local transport systems with the convenient park and ride options and excellent bus and train connectivity to major cities around.
