Do not miss a visit here.

This area has been transformed over the last 10/15 years. There are a lot of historical locations in easy reach all around the dockside area. Very interesting to visit.

Went round the docks both sides. Lots of things to do including museums to visit and old lock gates at one end.

Great time on the Shaun the Sheep trail around the docks, so much to see and do and so many great places to eat and drink. We had a mix of ages - 2 years old to 69! Good fun and pretty flat so no problems, can also get a water taxi if tired. Recommended day out.

Many pleasant Sunday afternoons spent walking around the Docks. Numerous start and finish points for food and drink and regularly 'stuff' going on to add to the feel good feeling of being out and about. Lived in Bristol 45+ years and only recently realised how beautiful the Dockside area can be.

I have taken my family here for a walk after consuming a mega meal of all you can eat at the Zaza bazaar and needing something to burn some calories. It's a long walk from the waterfront all the way round to the docks passing the Matthew then the shipyard ss great Britain and back around.

A great spot to leisurely stroll along taking in the river, boats (The tall ship Matthew), steam train & bars & cafes. Spent a great afternoon with live music outside the Brigstow Lounge after strolling the harbour.

As a family we had never really taken the time to visit the Bristol docks area despite only being an hours drive way. The 'Shaun in the City' art trail gave us the perfect opportunity to do so and we did not regret it. Great atmosphere and a credit to those involved in making it what it is today. One... More

Whole area lively and vibrant with loads of restaurants. Also hold the main attraction SS Great Britain - well worth a visit.

Is alway nice to talk around a water front in a decent weather. Bristol city docks would just give you the nice walk around the river towards some nice restaurant and pub along the water. The walk is clean and one of the nice area of Bristol
