One of Britain’s most beautiful cities, Bristol is idyllically set in the sleepy southwest, where the pace is slow and faces are friendly.
Visitors staying at central Bristol hotels never fail to be enchanted by the picturesque views: life centres around the charming River Avon, Bristol Cathedral, the Clifton Suspension Bridge, the first ever Methodist Chapel and numerous relics of the city’s pirating and slave trade past. To navigate this, Bristol hotel guests can take walking, boating, cycling, bus and even hot air balloon tours.
In terms of indoor attractions – for it does rain regularly – there are top shopping malls and one of the finest music and theatre offerings in the UK. Guests of Bristol hotels in search of live performances will be kept well entertained with the city’s abundant gigs, concerts and its legendary theatre scene. And if, after all that, it’s still too early to go back to your hotel, Bristol is the undisputed nightlife capital of England’s southwest.
Counting Wordsworth, Samuel Taylor Coleridge, Daniel Day Lewis and graffiti artist Banksy among its prodigious sons, Bristol is among the most pedigreed cultural heartlands of the UK. Book a weekend in one of the excellent Bristol hotels to discover why.
