Bristol is an energetic melting pot of old and new – where heritage gets an imaginative twist for the present day. Climb aboard SS Great Britain, scramble under the mighty Clifton Suspension Bridge and get hands-on with history in the M Shed. And if you’re lucky you might spot the works of Bristol’s most famously anonymous son, graffiti artist Banksy.
Culturally rich, Bristol brims with local, ethical food, outdoor activities, arthouse cinema and a vibrant theatre scene. Not forgetting the Circus City festival that swings into town every two years, bringing world-class circus acts alongside inclusive activities from clown-o-therapy to acroyoga.
