Located in south west England, Bristol is a diverse city with an interesting heritage and beautiful architecture. Home to many great art galleries, fine bars and restaurants, as well as the city's famous Clifton Suspension Bridge, Bristol holidays are amongst some of the most popular city breaks in the United Kingdom.
Bristol is serviced by Bristol Airport. It is easy to get from the airport to the city by local bus service or taxis from outside of the main terminal. The city centre of Bristol and the main sights are easy to navigate on foot, so the best time to visit is in the spring or summer when its easier to make the most of the outdoor activities. The timezone is GMT.
A great way to start in Bristol is to take a walk around its historic Old City and a look at the Corn Exchange. Built in 1743, its historic clock on the front tells both GMT and old Bristol time. On Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays, catch the local market on Corn Street for tasty fresh delicacies. A stroll through St. Nicholas Market affords visitors various flavours including local cheeses and food from around the world all nestled underneath the arcade's striking glass roof.
In the West End area, head to the Bristol Museum and Art Gallery, the city's largest centre for art exhibitions, to see some world class art. Of course, holidaymakers should keep their eyes peeled for art on the streets themselves, as graffiti made by the infamous street artist Banksy can be found throughout Bristol. In Clifton there many great cafés and restaurants in Bristol's most up-market area. Head to Bristol Zoo, one of the world's oldest zoological gardens, and to Clifton Suspension Bridge. The most famous landmark of the city, this 19th century suspension bridge spans the Avon Gorge, and is free to walk across.
