We walked along the docks after visiting the Aquarium, there is a nice foot path along the docks with boat trips and ferries stopping along the way. There are coffee shops and places to rest your legs and take in the views as you walk along.

If you are visiting Bristol, I recommend a walk around the Bristol harbourside. There is a footpath around, it is all flat and it takes around 45 minutes to do a complete walk. There are lots of watering places along the way--pubs, cafes and bars. I love it and not many cities have this attraction. You could also take a... More

Illuminating, fresh and interesting, the docks always help clear the head and inform it, with a wide range of new and old to consider. Worth a walk.

Simply stroll around the whole harbour area through old and new developments to soak up the atmosphere. Plenty of places to visit and plenty of places to eat and drink

The walks we had at various times were picturesque. The bar life in the evenings give a whole new atmosphere to the area.
