There’s so much to see and do in Bristol, there’s no wonder there are a variety of walking tours available to take in all the sights. If you want to try something different, and a little less run of the mill, then why not book yourself in for one of the Haunted and Hidden Walking Tours. Let the guide take you through some of the oldest parts of Bristol, including a 16th century church said to be haunted by a ghostly monk and haunted pubs frequented by famous figures such as Oliver Cromwell and Daniel DeFoe. The tour is a fascinating evening of history and fun, and makes a great activity for couples or families with older children.
Set on the cliffs of the Avon gorge is Clifton Suspension Bridge, a symbol of this exciting metropolis. Designed by the Victorian engineer Isambard Kingdom Brunel, the bridge was not finished until after his death in 1864. Once designed as a crossing for horse drawn carriages, this remarkable piece of design continues to serve the busy commuters today. Another famous landmark of the city is Bristol Cathedral located on College Green. This imposing Cathedral is over 700 years old and one of the finest examples in the world of a hall church. The Cathedral is free to enter, and is most certainly worth a visit, if not a guided tour!
If you’re travelling with children, there’s plenty to keep them occupied. Take a pirate walking tour by the harbour and learn about the city’s swash buckling maritime history, watch the sharks at the aquarium or why not spend the day at Bristol Zoo? For eating out, you’ll be spoilt for choice but the Tobacco Factory Market makes a great lunch destination, selling everything from homemade pies to sushi. For romance, try one of the restaurants on the harbour for stunning costal views.
