A leisurely way to see how the old dock area has been brought back to life. Reasonable fares and friendly, helpful boat staff. Worth a ride.

The Bristol ferrys are not only a great way to get from A to B but also provide one of the best views of the city. A favourite route is from Temple Meads train station to the floating harbour.

A great way of getting from SS Great Britain into the City Centre. The 2 guys operating the taxi were very knowledgeable of the area, and pointed us in the right direction for street art !! :)
