Bristol, with its thriving cosmopolitan atmosphere, surrounding the energetic university buzz, is a must-visit, and has something for all the family. From a richly diverse cultural heritage to iconic contemporary flavours, Bristol has spawned a wealth of talent, attractions and more.
The home of Banksy, as you’d expect, is full of his (or her) artwork, and you’ll spot many pieces as you move around the city. However, if you prefer something more classical, Bristol’s many art galleries offer works from the great masters alongside more contemporary creations.
Bristol Zoo is a favourite attraction, and is internationally recognised for its many successful conservation programmes. With an impressive adoption package, why not adopt an animal - it’s a unique and rewarding gift for someone. For adrenaline junkies, head for The Wave to experience the exciting thrill of inland surfing, while retail addicts will love Bristol’s shopping quarter. It’s full of all the big high street names, while the colourful markets are packed with unique artisan pieces, one-off gifts and studio crafts.
