Great place to visit especially on a nice sunny day. Good places to eat and the museums are well worth a look inside. Nice to just sit and relax and watch the world go by if that is all you want to do.

The city is beautiful and small enough for a few calm vacation days. A lot of things to visit and great restaurants to try.

It is a long time since I have visited Bristol, but I was delighted to see the excellent developments of what was a very run down area. Now a very pleasurable visit.

It is a lovely area to go for a walk in, it is close to the centre and there are loads of restaurants in the area and little shops and stalls selling antique books and bits and bobs. It is like a little Venice and nice to have the water so close to the town centre. Lots of boats, and... More

Full of history and special sites. A great way to spend a couple of hours doing nothing. Although there are many bars and restaurants dotted around. The M Shed museum is not far away either.

Great for an afternoon stroll, there is plenty to see and do along your walk, which you can do around the whole of the docks. Places to stop for food and beverages. This is a great day out for the family or couples or if your on your own.
