Loads of pubs in the area as well as the old docks. great just chilling about. the harbour ferry is a great way to see everything, five pound for a round trip will take you about 45 mins, Well worth every penny.

Lush visit to the docks. There is so much to do there that I highly recommend a visit. Steam trains, Boat rides, Music, water fountains that kids run around in, food, bars. Get down there and have a look !!

The restoration of the Bristol Docks means that this is a very cool place to hang out and be. Chic waterfront restaurants and bars - excellent walking baths and then there is the river sparking in the background. During the day this is excellent but at night it can get busy but its still way cool.

You can just imagine life here before the floating harbor was built, all those ocean-going sail ships lying on their sides at low tide, waiting for the Full Moon high tide to sail them back down the Avon to the open ocean again...

It has everything. History, ss Great Britain, the M shed, @centre, Watershed and loads of places to eat and enjoy. AND all linked by ferries which run all day. Plus you can have guided boat tours. Bike friendly and mainly car free

I love Bristol docks. There are several bars and restaurants to choose from. I regularly walk around the docks and at night it's good to sometimes go for a jog. The lights look amazing.

Re-visited this exhibition for the second year whilst visiting relatives in Bristol As occasional visitors to the dock area for over 35 years we have seen such massive developments that have transformed this decayed area. It really is a massive transformation that the residents can be proud of. With new housing and accommodation, conversion of former bonded stores, new hospitality... More
