Bristol City Break

Straddling the River Avon, Bristol has got a rich industrial and maritime past. The lovely Harbourside area has been transformed into a cultural hub and is the place to go to grab a bite in one of the waterfront eateries or to discover the many museums and galleries dotted around, including the must-do Brunel’s SS Great Britain. The city is also a popular shopping destination, so leave some time to buy some souvenirs!
Harbourside & Boat Trips: Once a busy commercial port, Bristol’s Harbourside has been transformed into a modern development with plenty of restaurants, bars, shops and museums to browse. Why not hop aboard a boat and enjoy the city from the water with a relaxing cruise?

Museums & Galleries: Don’t miss the fabulous Brunel’s SS Great Britain – step aboard and discover the incredible story of one of Britain’s greatest engineers and one of the most important ships in maritime history. Uncover a treasure trove of Egyptian mummies, art, dinosaurs and nature at Bristol Museum & Art Gallery, visit M Shed to learn all about the history of the city or explore the Arnolfini’s contemporary art exhibitions. For fun, interactive science exhibits try We The Curious or embark on a journey through aviation history at Aerospace Bristol where you can even step aboard the iconic Concorde Alpha Foxtrot.

History & Heritage: See Bristol’s beautiful and historic Cathedral, which dates back to the 12th century, or admire the stunning Gothic architecture of St Mary Redcliffe Church. Enjoy a quiet stroll through the lovely Castle Park, which is home to the ruins of St Peter’s Church, which was heavily damaged during World War II. Climb the 1897-built Cabot Tower’s spiral staircase to enjoy panoramic city views or cross the iconic Clifton Suspension Bridge.

Zoo & Aquarium: Visit the fifth oldest zoo in the world, Bristol Zoo Gardens, which first opened its doors to the public in 1836, or explore more than 40 displays teeming with thousands of aquatic creatures at Bristol Aquarium.

Shopping: You’ll find Bristol Shopping Quarter in the heart of the city centre, home to hundreds of shops. Market-wise, St Nicholas Market is a popular choice with more than 60 stalls to browse along with tempting food stalls in the Glass Arcade. Less than 10 miles outside of the city centre is Cribbs Causeway, a large shopping centre with over 150 stores to tick off.
