Rough Guide has voted Bristol onto its list of Top Ten cities to Visit in 2017 and with a hub of culture and creativity and easy access to the beautiful Cotswolds, it is easy to see why. South West England’s largest city, Bristol has had artists and engineers whom have moulded the city’s past and present into the fantastic city it is today.
A vibrant innovative city and the European Green Capital in 2015, Bristol is a great city to explore. Spend time in its wonderful port which is now a hub of activity with some of the city’s favourite attractions including Brunel’s SS Great Britain as well as superb restaurants and shops. Find out more about the city’s history in the M Shed or perhaps take a street art guided tour discovering the hidden edgy gems of the city many of which are the work of Banksy himself. What’s more, from cosy pubs to sophisticated speakeasies to legendary underground gigs and a thriving LGBT scene, Bristol has also got you covered however you like to spend your nights out.
Furthermore why not venture outside the city to one of the UK’s prettiest areas, the Cotswolds, if a stay in a quaint cottage in a picturesque village is more your cup of tea. There are lots of fantastic activities here for the family including wildlife parks and farm parks and with such a gorgeous backdrop, you can simply take a walk and explore the beautiful Cotswold countryside.
