Pocket Guide: Bristol Banksy Graffiti Mild Mild West Hotels

See the fascinating Banksy Mild Mild West mural, which is near The Canteen Bristol at Stokes Croft and was designed by one of the world's most famous graffiti artists, Banksy. His politically motivated graffiti has grabbed the attention of millions of people all over the world, and the man himself is considered to be an urban legend, perhaps partly inspired by the French stencil-graffiti artist Blek le Rat. This mural is just minutes from the Bristol Broadmead shopping centre, and also in walking distance of Montpelier Railway Station, the University of Bristol and several hotels.

About the Banksy Graffiti Mild Mild West

This mural depicts a giant teddy bear that holds a lit Molotov cocktail in his hand as he is approached by three policemen armed with protective shields. It's one of his first graffiti works in the city, painted high up on a wall, and has garnered the respect of many local residents, and is perhaps best admired from Jamaica Street Junction.

The naming behind 'Mild Mild West' is open to anyone's interpretation, like any piece of artwork. It may have been a reference to the strict policing culture of the 'Wild Wild West' of America, in contrast to the relatively more 'sedate' form of British policing. That's the beauty of Banksy - you can tour around Bristol and make up your own mind as to what the artist was actually trying to portray in his ground-breaking works.

Affordable Places to Stay near the Banksy Graffiti Mild Mild West
