Bristol, Visitor & Tourism Guide



This section relates to the ceremonial/geographic county* in which Bristol City sits. To learn more about the city, click here: Bristol City.

Sometimes called Greater Bristol, the county covers Bristol City and three adjoining local authorities. Sometimes called the 'Avon' area.

In South West England. Gloucestershire to the north and Somerset to the south. The Bristol Channel is to the west. Over the water is Wales

Clearly, the main focus is Bristol City. It's the most populated city in the region and one of the largest in the UK with about a million people in what the EU defines as a 'Larger Urban Zone'.

There's a short stretch of coastline along the Severn Estuary with the River Avon (Gloucestershire to Bristol) flowing through the Avon Gorge to the Bristol Channel.

If you're looking for culture and history then this small county delivers. Check out the British Empire & Commonwealth Museum, City Museum and Art Gallery, SS Great Britain, Georgian House, Bristol Cathedral, St Mary Redcliffe Church, Bristol Harbour (the 'Floating Harbour'), Blaise Castle Estate, Kings Weston Roman Villa and The Red Lodge.

For nature and the outdoors, try Bristol Zoo, HorseWorld, Avon Valley Adventure & Wildlife Park, Noah’s Ark Zoo Farm, Avon Gorge and Clifton Suspension Bridge. There are Avon Valley Railway, Avon Valley Adventure & Wildlife Park too.
