Hit the docks, sailor. Starting downtown, you can easily visit Bristol’s most popular sights by following the River Avon towards the sea. To stay current with…the currents, tour Brunel’s SS Great Britain on Spike Island, a tall ship turned maritime museum. North of Spike Island, walk inland to scenic Brandon Hill Park and the Bristol Museum & Art Gallery near the university. Further west, cross the Victorian Clifton Suspension Bridge. Just make sure you wind up on the north side of the river to see Blaise Castle, built during the 18th century. Today, Blaise Castle Estate stands side by side with Henbury Golf Club, just in case hitting the driving range wasn’t fancy enough already. When the sun starts to set, catch a ride on the Bristol Eye, an observation wheel perfectly situated to help you scope out the best pubs, clubs and Bristol accommodation.
Catch a flight to Bristol Airport (BRS), just 12 km southwest of downtown. You can get around by bus, but the most efficient form of transport here is driving, so make sure you check out Wotif’s awesome car hire options when you book your Bristol hotel.
