FROM ICONIC BANKSY STREET ART TO A 19TH CENTURY PICTURESQUE HAMLET, BRISTOL IS BURSTING WITH CULTURE AND A VIBRANT HISTORY JUST WAITING TO BE DISCOVERED!

Taking a recess when you’re bogged down with assignments can be more helpful than you think. After taking time out to do something fun and cultured, you’ll return to your work with a new perspective and should feel energised and motivated!

So step away from your desk
Walk out of the door
And go and experience at least two things on our list below!

 

Banksy | Visit Website

In the place where his work began, some of Banksy’s earliest work is dotted all over Bristol. Banksy’s street art is now world-famous, yet his identity is still unknown.

Venture out on your own Banksy treasure hunt, take a self-guided Banksy walking tour or join in on a street art walking tour with the experts to learn more about the elusive artist and up and coming street artists inspired by his work.

 

Clifton Suspension Bridge | Visit Website

First open to the public in 1864, this magnificent structure is the symbol of Bristol city. It was designed by Isambard Kingdom Brunel, one of the most celebrated engineers of the 19th century. Located at the end of Clifton Village, the Clifton Suspension Bridge spans the scenic Avon Gorge, joining Bristol and North Somerset.

 

Blaise Hamlet | Visit Website

Part of the National Trust, Blaise Hamlet features nine rustic, picturesque cottages built in 1811. The cottages are all unique, each telling a different story of how people lived in the early 19th century. The hamlet is one of the first examples of a planned community and provokes a feeling of tranquillity and seclusion – perfect for clearing your head!

 

Brunel’s ss Great Britain | Visit Website

ss Great Britain is the world’s first ever iron-built and propeller-driven steamship, giving her the reputation of ‘the ship that changed the world’. Another influential design by Isambard Kingdon Brunel, ss Great Britain first set sail in 1843 across the Atlantic to Australia, carrying hundreds of emigrants and gold-seekers.

Now a museum ship located on the Great Western Dockyard in Bristol, this former passenger steamship is a popular attraction amongst visitors and residents.

 

Cabot Tower and Brandon Hill | Visit Website

Brandon Hill is Bristol’s oldest park, and in it stands the 105ft tall Cabot Tower – the icon of Bristol’s skyline. The tower was built in 1897 to commemorate John Cabot’s famous voyage from Bristol to North America in 1497. Here you can enjoy stunning panoramic views over the city and the Harbourside area, and climb up the twisting steps of the tower at no cost.

 

Bristol Zoo Gardens | Visit Website

The Zoo isn’t just for kids – bring your flatmates and make a day of it! See the Asiatic Lions, feed the Penguins or get up and close with some Gorillas (maybe they’ll scare you into finishing your essay).

 

Bristol Cathedral | Visit Website

One of England’s great medieval churches, Bristol Cathedral boasts a range of stunning architectural styles, from Gothic Revival to French Rayonnant – definitely one for Instagram! Take a guided tour around the stunning Cathedral for stories about local mobs trying to set the place on fire, to the strange discovery of a carving under an old floor.
