How to Get to and Around Bristol

It is also possible to see the city by boat, and there are ferries linking destinations on the docks. Driving can be difficult in the winding streets of Bristol, and parking is hard to come by, but hiring a car is a great way to explore the surrounding area.


What Are the Must-sees In Bristol?

The iconic Clifton Suspension Bridge spans the Avon gorge west of the city. It is a marvel of Victorian engineering and took 28 years to build. Its designer Isambard Kingdom Brunel died before it was completed in 1864. Cars pay a toll to cross it, and there is a visitor centre nearby.

Another Brunel creation, the mighty SS Great Britain, is on display at the docks. The huge transatlantic steamship was salvaged from the Falkland Islands in 1970 and has been restored.

Nearby is the impressive M Shed museum, which tells the story of Bristol and its people. There are exhibits focusing on the slave trade, which had a huge impact on the city, and more modern influences, such as its hip music scene.

Very good

A short flight on a pretty basic plane. Surprisingly good legroom.

Was good no waiting around and clear instruction no.

This was a good start to my day, just a pity that didn't continue onto the vehicle hire as replied to separately.

I’ve changed my mind on Ryan air I’ll use them again. I would like to think they enforced the on board bag policy though. I paid to put my bag in the hold but at least one person took a bigger bag on the aircraft.
