A Beginners Guide To Bristol

Despite the fact that Bristol recently launched its own currency (the Bristol Pound), you won’t need to change your money before a visit to this part of the West Country. Whether you want to enjoy superb architecture, soak in the cultural delights, or just treat yourself to a spot of shopping, a Bristol break keeps everyone entertained.

Banksy in Bristol

Many people who come to Bristol want to see a bit of Banksy, arguably the most famous artist Bristol’s has ever produced. While the exhibition that Banksy put on at the Bristol Museum and Art Gallery in 2009 may have left town, there are still some of his pieces on display. However, if you really want to see some authentic Banksy you have to see it out on the street. Luckily online maps detailing just where his graffiti is are easy to find as the art itself.

Brunel’s Wonders

While many people are aware of the fantastic sights that Isambard Kingdom Brunel’s Clifton Suspension Bridge offers, they might not be aware of another one of his masterpieces – the SS Great Britain. This was the first iron ship to sail on the oceans, and today it provides a wonderful account of maritime history at the Great Western Dockyard to hundreds of thousands of visitors every year.

Showstoppers for All Sorts

If you enjoy the theatre you’re in luck as there’s something here to suit all tastes. The Bristol Hippodrome puts on performances of West End shows such as The Lion King, as well as opera, ballet and pantomimes. The Theatre Royal, Bristol is the oldest continually operating theatre in England and puts on new plays and old favourites including Shakespeare. Meanwhile if you fancy a laugh the Tobacco Factory is well known for its comedy.


As far as shopping goes, most people will find something to smile about at the 120-store Cabot Circus. Many people who don’t want to see the same old brands will prefer a day wandering around Old Market – even if you have no need for martial arts gear or windsurfers you can appreciate the 60 or so grade-listed buildings. If you mean business, however, Park Street is just the place to find that one of a kind outfit.

Getting a Good Night’s Sleep

A great location for a hotel is around Castle Park, as it’s only a mile from Park Street and just as close to Cabot Circus. Nobody would blame you for staying in beautiful Clifton, however, even if it was just to get an up close view of the bridge.
