Had the most interesting and entertaining Ferry Trip around the dock on two Bristol Ferry Boats. The on board staff were both enthusiastic and fun loving and went out of their way to ensure we had seen all the best parts of the City.

Great historical insight & stellar architecture. Led by a wonderful guide, Dunan, who had tremendous knowledge base & excellent speaking voice. Poised, professional & polished... the best!

Fabulous views, beautiful buildings, great bars and restaurants to choose from! Some of the bars etc are pricey but worth it for the view! If you want fab food at a decent price you can't go wrong with ZaZa Bazaar!

Can't beat a good stroll around the docks on a nice Sunny day. I know I am a local so am biased but I believe this is a real feature to bristol and nicer than some other cities!

Calming energy by the water and excellent food and films at the Watershed. Also The Cottage pub is brilliant for pub food and lively vibe

The Bristol docks are fantastic, always worth a visit. You can catch a ferry to the SS Great Britain.

We walked around during the bank holiday so it was pretty busy but offered some great food and art stalls. There are loads of restaurants and bars to choose from and all in all if pretty cool.
