Bristol

Trip Planner Europe  /  UK  /  England  /  Bristol
Bristol is famous for its Georgian and Victorian architecture, street art, underground music, maritime history, and the world-famous Clifton Suspension Bridge. Largely flattened by the bombings of World War II, Bristol went through gradual regeneration, slowly becoming one of the country’s most attractive cities, noted for a thriving nightlife scene. Often overlooked by passing travelers, Bristol provides an excellent base for exploring the West Country, offering relatively inexpensive accommodations and a huge choice of bars, restaurants, and shops. One of the most culturally vibrant cities in this part of England, Bristol hosts a wide range of festivals throughout the year. Be sure to visit the docks at the old city center, recently rejuvenated as a hub of the region’s cultural and creative activity. Bristol is in England. With our custom trip planner, United Kingdom vacations can be built around trips to Bristol and other destinations in United Kingdom.
