Bristol Travel Guide

by our United Kingdom expert Terry Emery
 
Terry EmeryBristol is, and always has been, a seafaring town. Already a major harbour in Tudor times, John Cabot set out in The Mathew from here to discover the fabled North-West passage and it became an essential part of Victorian commerce. Brunel built one of the engineering Seven Wonders in the Clifton Suspension Bridge over the Avon Gorge and then another with the SS Great Britain, now safely restored in the docks. The harbourside has been transformed into a mix of maritime museum and leisure area with a collection of historic vessels (including the classic tall ship Tangaroa), galleries including the Arnolfini, restaurants and clubs.
