Pioneering sustainable approaches to management of metropolitan environments, Bristol is staunchly independent and a magnet for street art fans!

Home to the infamous Banksy, Bristol’s street art scene is as colourful as its social history, built on centuries of international shipping.

Bristol’s floating harbour and city centre is filled with architectural nods to the city’s maritime heritage, alongside fun museums & attractions, and highly rated eateries. Fascinating street art is in every nook and cranny, and the huge selection of annual events and festivals, ensures Bristol a definite inclusion on the classic visitor circuit around the UK.
