The City of Bristol

Situated on the River Avon, Bristol has a rich maritime history and was the starting place for voyages of exploration to the New World. From here, John Cabot set out in 1497 to become the first European to land on mainland North America. Bristol's history is linked to the slave trade, and today, its economy is built on the creative media, electronics and aerospace industries.

Great places to visit in Bristol include:

  • Bristol Floating Harbour
  • Bristol Cathedral
  • Brunel's SS Great Britain
  • Clifton Suspension Bridge
  • Bristol Street Art
  • Bristol Old City

That's not all; the Bristol Museum and Art Gallery is well worth a visit, as is the nearby Cheddar Gorge (18 miles away). Bristol is a bohemian town, mixing the old and new for a great day out!
