Visiting Bristol

If you are not from round these parts, then Bristol is a great place to visit.  It is easy to see why Cary Grant had such a soft spot for the city of his birth and returned so frequently. Bristol has been voted the best city to live in the UK by OnePoll (Oct 2009), MoneySuperMarket (Oct 2013) and most recently by The Sunday Times (March 2014) and was awarded European Green Capital 2015. If you are planning a trip to Bristol, then the Visit Bristol website has lots of useful information about accommodation and what’s on in the city. The tourist information office is situated on the Harbourside just beneath the Watershed (one of the festival venues).
