The M-Shed (the name for the renovated Bristol Industrial Museum) is of great interest, and nicely laid out in what is a much more comfortable building now, with a good café and toilets. I was disappointed that the bulk of the wonderful display of sectioned aero engines has been moved to Rolls Royce Derby, leaving just a Bristol Proteus and... More

On a sunny day it is really pleasant to have a stroll along Bristol docks. If you're in to history, SS Great Britain is worth a visit. On the day we went there was a food fair on and it was good to look around the stalls. A nice relaxing way to spend a couple of hours.

Took a walk around here over easter. The docks are a busy place for imported cars from all over the world. If you like walking around Portsmouth docks and seeing all the marine traffic then you'll love Bristol docks.

The docks are a key part of Bristol's history but what we like best is doing a nice 3 mile circuit walk of the docks, It s a flat and pleasant walk and there are plenty of excellent places to stop for refreshments which makes it a really relaxing way to do a little exercise.

A very nice place to go for a peaceful, relaxing walk with my fiancée, we both thoroughly enjoyed the atmosphere and believe it is a very enjoyable way to see Bristol. Very romantic.

You have the new M she museum of Bristol as well as Brunel's SS Great Britain, which... More
