Bristol

Trip Planner Europe  /  UK  /  England  /  Bristol
Bristol is famous for its Georgian and Victorian architecture, street art, underground music, maritime history, and the world-famous Clifton Suspension Bridge. Largely flattened by the bombings of World War II, Bristol went through gradual regeneration, slowly becoming one of the country’s most attractive cities, noted for a thriving nightlife scene. Often overlooked by passing travelers, Bristol provides an excellent base for exploring the West Country, offering relatively inexpensive accommodations and a huge choice of bars, restaurants, and shops. One of the most culturally vibrant cities in this part of England, Bristol hosts a wide range of festivals throughout the year. Be sure to visit the docks at the old city center, recently rejuvenated as a hub of the region’s cultural and creative activity.
