Whenever friends come to Bristol we take them for a walk around the Docks. There’s always something different to see-the train running, one of the boats steaming around the harbour or any number of other activities. You can eat at the achingly cool Cargo complex...More

I was very lucky to visit the harbor on a beautiful spring day this weekend. The views are breathtaking, it’s an amazing site for photography. It’s quite a long walk along the river Avon but there are also small ferry boats that go up and...More
