What to see in Bristol

Bristol is one of the UK’s most historic Cities, with culture, architecture, shopping, night life, entertainment and attractions to keep all ages pleased. In the past Bristol was as big a City as London and rivalled it for trade.

The River Avon has always been important and is the home of the replica sailing ship ‘The Matthew‘ and the historic ship ‘The SS Great Britain‘ built by Bristol legend Isambard Kingdom Brunel.

Bristol Zoo is one of the most visited hot spots, with over 450+ species and endangered animals. Bristol Zoo is located in 12 acres of landscaped gardens.

Cabot Circus is a mega-mall shopping retail store offering over 200,000 square feet over 3 levels, cafes, shops, restaurants and did we mention the amount of great shops!

The Arnolfini is a Bohemian arts centre for all contemporary arty intellectual types. Lots to see and talk about, although you may question just how much of it is actually art.

Cheddar Gorge is technically not in Bristol but a worthy tourist visit as it holds so much to see with it’s wonderous caves of underground stalactites and stalagmites, beautifully lit. The Limestone cliffs that tower over 450 feet above Cheddar gorge, now used mostly for maturing the world famous cheese (hence it’s name).

Wookey Hole Caves is once again not technically in Bristol but too good to not list as a must visit location for Bristol with more caves and home of the witch of wookey. Entertainment galore with pitch and put golf, arcades and toy shops to browse. The historical tours and the museum is well worth a visit.
