Do & See
There’s so much going on in Bristol, the challenge is deciding what to see first! You could spend hours just exploring the Harbourside. The historic dock is now home to Victorian engineer Isambard Kingdom Brunel’s ss Great Britain, The Matthew, the Arnolfini art gallery and M Shed museum. Nearby, on Millennium Square, you can also check out Bristol Aquarium, At-Bristol Science Centre and all the many markets, festivals and events that take place here throughout the year. Venture a little further uphill and you’ll discover the stunning Regency architecture of Clifton, with one of Brunel’s most astounding engineering feats, the Clifton Suspension Bridge, and one of the oldest zoos in the world – Bristol Zoo Gardens. The best way to see all this and more is via the hop-on-hop-off Bristol Insight open-top tour bus. As an added bonus, Bristol is within easy reach of some stunning English countryside. To see what we’re talking about, head to the historic Berkeley Castle, set in rural Gloucestershire, or to the dramatic Cheddar Caves & Gorge, surrounded by walking trails. You also find the World Heritage city of Bath just a 15-minute train ride away.
