5 good reasons to go

A great old city
A great old city
Just like other English cities, Bristol has a charming historical centre. Go back in time by starting your excursion off with the Gothic Anglican cathedral and finishing with the City Hall and its Neo-Georgian style. A true lesson on English architecture, not to be missed!
Larger-than-life museums
Larger-than-life museums
You cannot miss out on the city’s Art and History museums, which are both highly instructive. Children and adults alike can discover a captivating past there. The SS Great Britain and Aerospace are particularly intriguing.
Street art across the city
Street art across the city
”More art?”, some will say. Yes, but street art takes a different approach. A route through the city familiarises you with all the main sites and shows you several unique works. The king of street art in Bristol is Banksy, an artist who creates frescos with political or poetic messages.
A fast-paced agenda
A fast-paced agenda
Bristol would not be itself without the myriad of events held every year. Music, street art and culinary festivals follow each other non-stop. Yet the most sought-after is the international Hot Air Balloon festival held in August. Admire this magical ballet thanks to your plane ticket to Bristol.
The city of 450 parks
The city of 450 parks
As soon as the sun comes out, the locals head to Bristol's 450 parks and gardens, dotted around the city! Brandon Hill and the zoo are favourites for families. Not far from Bristol, the Mendip hills and Wookey Hole grottos are also worth visiting to explore.

To see / do

Culture and history

A bridge to reach all heights

A bridge to reach all heights

Just a short journey from the centre of Bristol, you can cross the majestic Clifton Suspension Bridge. This technical feat dates back to the middle of the 19th century. You can easily walk along it and enjoy the beautiful panoramic view. The whole of Bristol and the Avon lies below you.

Boarding the SS Great Britain

The huge luxurious liner came off the seas for a memorable visit. Designed by I. K. Brunel, the same engineer who created the Clifton Suspension Bridge, the ship opens its doors to time travellers. The SS Great Britain has been restored as per its original Victorian style. The visit is simply amazing, from the kitchens right through to the first-class rooms!

Bristol’s medieval cathedral

Bristol’s medieval cathedral

The Cathedral Church of the Holy and Undivided Trinity is a church hall and medieval architectural gem. Roman and Gothic styles were cleverly combined, to such an extent that the edifice is known world-wide. Both towers were added during the 19th century for a more spectacular effect.

Outings

A bohemian wind from the north

When visiting the north of Bristol, you cannot miss out on the Montpelier and Saint Paul districts - filled with great attractions. Colourful houses, street art and world cuisine make for an original atmosphere. There is even a Caribbean feel to the gatherings and parties there! Enjoy a drink while listening to some reggae and dance with the locals until the early hours.

Around the port

Around the port

Closer to the city centre, the port area is extremely lively. The atmosphere is both chic and relaxed, ideal for a nice drink after your flight from Bordeaux. You could also savour a nice healthy meal. There are plenty of restaurants offering healthy and high-quality menus, serving regional products with an a quirky twist.

Gastronomy

Irresistible sticky toffee pudding

Irresistible sticky toffee pudding

In Bristol, like in other British towns, sticky toffee pudding is the ultimate dessert. As famous as molten chocolate cakes are in France, it is made with dates and sometimes walnuts. It is coated with salted butter caramel just before serving. Quite simply divine. 

Cider like no other

Cider is mostly made in south-western England. It is served in all the pubs in Bristol. Take some time to choose the right one as there are lots of different kinds - just like beer. Either made with pears or apples, English cider has a kick - which may not please everyone!
