Home to the Concorde, Rolls Royce and Wallace and Gromit, Bristol is also where you find that rather impressive 19th century bridge by Isambard Kingdom Brunel.
The name Bristol comes from the Old English “Brycgstow” meaning place at the bridge. A place of business since Saxon times, the city has continued to live up to that label ever since because of its famous Clifton Suspension Bridge.
Situated in the South West of England, lively Bristol has much to offer the most discerning of sightseers. On offer here is a glamorous harbour, an exciting university, piles of history and tons of nature.
The history of Bristol’s port is as prosperous as it is dark. With its busy, hard working port, Bristol enjoyed the trappings of a lavish New World cargo (tobacco, cocoa and sugar amongst others) as well as from its earlier years of trading with Spain and Portugal. Unfortunately when the slave trade took hold, Bristol port played a significant part in the Slave Triangle. Giant “slave ships” would sit in dock ready to deliver recently “purchased” 11 million African men and women to their cruel destinies in the Caribbean and the New World. In 1807, the Slave Trade was abolished and Bristol port ceased its employment in the selling and delivering of human beings.
Bristol’s connection to the sea has taken a back seat in recent years while other parts of town have been developed. The Harbourside development came about as a decision to resurrect the relation of the city with it seafaring history. Today, Bristol’s Harbourside is a stunning place from which to explore and enjoy. Choose from a number of waterside cafes and restaurants as well as museums and galleries to spend a lazy afternoon. At night, the waterfront district springs even more into life with revellers enjoying the hundred pubs and forty clubs situated here. The At-Bristol attraction with its themes of “Explore” and “Wildwalk” offer an educational adventure for children and adults alike. For more wildlife with a conservation edge is the ever popular Bristol Zoo and Gardens. Also on the At-Bristol site (by the way and more than worthy of a mention here) is the impressive 3-D state of the art IMAX theatre.
Bristol’s skyline is famous for its Clifton Suspension Bridge designed by the excellent engineer Brunel in the nineteenth century. Resting on the Avon Gorge, you just can’t miss the sublime curves of this amazing achievement of modern engineering. Visitors in Bristol have a huge wealth of attractions to keep themselves occupied. If they aren’t admiring the longest Georgian crescent street in England then they are out admiring the beautiful countryside. This city offers an exhilarating blend of adventure activities inside and out of Bristol, the most popular of local activities being hot air ballooning and caving at the Cheddar Caves.
If your interests are less active, there is plenty to keep you occupied on the entertainment front. Art lovers have the Royal West of England Academy and the City Museum and Art Gallery. The Museum of Bristol and the Bristol Science Museum should satisfy the history addicts among Bristol’s visitors while theatre lovers have the Bristol Old Vic. Throw in a generous helping of comedy clubs, nightclubs and excellent restaurants and you have the recipe for an excellent city break!
In addition to what you are going to find inside the city there is plenty more on the outside. You can’t beat Bristol for a great touring base location. The country’s top ancient monuments are situated a relatively short drive from the city. When in Bristol, you might as well take in Stonehenge and Silbury Hill and while you are at it, enjoy the charming beauty of the Cotswolds, Somerset and the Forest of Dean.
