5 good reasons to go to Bristol
To see / do
Culture and history
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
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.
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
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.
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!
