Owner description: Walking Bristol run Free walking tours of Bristol, a stroll through Bristol's past. Tours run Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays. Starting at 11am from the statue of Queen Victoria, outside the Royal Marriott hotel on Park street in the city centre. We run for 3 hrs with a stop for lunch at Pieminister. You'll meet pirates, see Banksy artwork, hear about Brunel, learn the dark legacy of the slave trade and wrap it all up with the greatest adventure Bristol has to tell, the story of John Cabot.

We went along on a cold day, 6 of us ranging from 9 - 46 years old!
Everyone had a great time, kids had no idea they had walked so far!
James was an informative and charismatic guide, meeting the questions of the younger walkers as well as the older!
Lunch time Pie-minister was well received, although other eateries are available!
Many thanks for a fantastic tour.

Despite the rain, we spent a fun and informative few hours exploring bits of Bristol we'd never been to after nearly a year of uni! Guide really knew his stuff; was full of quirky stories and enthusiasm. Not just obvious sights (Wills Memorial Building, Christmas Steps etc) but also lesser known places and their anecdotes featuring pirates, Banksy and a statue of a dog that I'd never noticed before. Recommended for students, tourists, or anyone spending time in Bristol.

A brilliant introduction to the sights and stories of Bristol past and present. Plenty of chance to ask questions and pause for food and drink during a relaxing walk around the city with a well-informed and enthusiastic guide who brings the surroundings to life.
