Welcome to Bristol
Often described as a collection of neighbourhoods, Bristol is a relatively compact city offering a diverse mix of experiences for people of all ages. It is a city that doesn’t just buzz, it thumps!
The vibrant and historic Harbourside is home to award winning visitor attractions, museums, galleries, festivals and copious places to eat and drink.
The old city is bursting with character and charm, offering a taste of culture, theatre, nightlife, history and fantastic shopping.
The exclusive suburb of Clifton offers fine boutiques, restaurants and bars, all situated alongside popular visitor attractions like Bristol Zoo Gardens and the stunning Clifton Suspension Bridge.
The culture quarter that is Stokes Croft and Gloucester Rd is one of Bristol’s most creative and bohemian neighbourhoods, known for street art, live music, and independent shops, galleries, cafes and bars. (it's the longest independent shopping street in the whole of Europe).
Head away from the centre to discover other areas of note and interest like the multicultural area of St Marks Rd, Arnos Vale Cemetery where Mary Carpenter is buried, Snuff Mills and beautiful Blaise Castle Estate and much, much more.
In the words of Stephen Merchant (comedian, actor and co-writer of The Office and Extras):
‘Bristol is cool, cosmopolitan in its own way, it doesn’t copy or compete with other cities. Bristol is quite happy dancing to the beat of its own drum’
