The riverside city of Bristol in the West of England is home to a thriving creative community and all kinds of independent cafes and restaurants. Not sure what to do when you come to visit? Here are some of the top things to see when you are in Bristol.

Clifton suspension bridge

Built in the mid 19th century, the bridge has become an iconic symbol of Bristol. The large structure crosses the River Avon allowing you to drive, walk or cycle over it while taking in stunning views in either direction.

Bristol Cathedral

The Cathedral on College Green is over a thousand years old making it one of the oldest structures in Bristol. Enjoy the architecture from inside or head inside to admire the stained glass windows and old wooden beams.

Brunel's SS Great Britain

The SS Great Britain was the world’s first ocean liner. It has been restored from its wreckage in 1970 and allows you to experience what life was like aboard the ship during the Victorian era.

Queen Square

Queen Square is a Georgian Park found in the centre of Bristol. Surrounded by trees and cobbled streets, it provides a lovely bit of shelter from the city to have a picnic with some friends. 


Easton is dubbed the ‘coolest neighbourhood’ in Bristol. The range of independent cafes, restaurants and bars mean that it is the perfect place to head to when looking for somewhere to go on a free afternoon.
