Places to stay in Bristol

Bristol is one of the most the UK's most important historical cities, combining a rich cultural heritage with the cutting-edge features brought about by massive urban regeneration.

The city of Bristol grew up around the River Avon, soon establishing itself as a world-renowned centre for ship-building expertise and extraordinary engineering feats. As with many areas so closely tied to industry, the city went through a big transformation in the latter part of the 20th century, but much has been invested in modernising areas around the docks while still preserving the unique historical aspects. Bristol is also surrounded by beautiful countryside and many iconic landmarks are nearby.

Street art
The work of Bristol-based Banksy long ago crossed the line between graffiti and art, and the mystery artist's murals are celebrated all over Bristol. Some of it is hidden away, making discovering it even more exciting.
