Gritty and pretty, Bristol oozes imagination. This former port-city has had the courage and vision to re-invent itself into a creative and playful destination with bucket loads of heritage and a world class art scene.

From Clifton’s iconic suspension bridge to Brunel’s groundbreaking SS Great Britain, via steam boats and trains, Bristol is a city awash with culture past and present. Once voted the most active city in the U.K it’s a hands on, climb up, ride along and paddle experience.

Bristol was named the U.K’s first ‘cycling city’ – just watch out for those short sharp ascents through the city. Feeling tired? Hop on and off to take in the multi-coloured murals, chic lido, craft beer preoccupation and waterfront bars.
