Sightseeing in Bristol

Located in the south west of England lies the city name Bristol with has an population of roughly 435.000 making it a medium sized city. The people from Bristol are called Bristolians. The city has seen some rapid development from the late nineties onward which has resulted in a much nicer city center.

Some of the sights to see in Bristol include the cathedral, the council house, St. Mary Redcliffe church, the Bristol Hippodrome and the floating harbor. All of these are well within walking distance as the center has not spread out massively. Some parts of the city have real historical feel to it making it a nice place to go for a stroll. Especially the area around the cathedral church of the holy and undivided trinity has a nice feel to it. 

Bristol is also home to the Clifton suspension bridge which spans the Avon Gorge. It was one of the first suspension bridges and has become a real landmark in Bristol, maybe even the most recognizable. There is a viewing point nearby form which you can see the bridge and get a good view across the gorge that it spans.

Bristol is located closely to Bath which is a well worth visit for a day trip as it has a much different look and feel. Bristol is well connected to the rest of the UK by train and it also has an airport.
