Bristol and its attractions
Bristol truly combines the old and the new, resulting in a wealth of excellent attractions. Begin with the old at the Church of St Mary Redcliffe, which was completed in the 15th century and is a beautiful example of Gothic architecture. Bristol Cathedral, the city’s primary religious building, was consecrated in 1148 and is another must-visit.
Clifton Suspension Bridge is a wonder of engineering, spanning the Avon Gorge and dating back to 1864. At the Bristol City Museum and Art Gallery, you can view one of the country’s best collections of Egyptology and prehistoric artefacts.
There isn’t much known about the iconic yet elusive Banksy, but we do know that the famous street artist hails from Bristol. You can get a guided tour of his work in the city or have fun looking for his pieces yourself as you walk around and explore.
Bristol Zoo is one of the nation’s best. It features more than 50 species of mammals, including lions, hippos, red pandas, gorillas and lemurs, among many others. There are also extensive insect and reptile enclosures at the zoo, as well as a fascinating aquarium which is home to 70 different types of fish.
Bristol’s excellent nightlife
The nightlife scene in Bristol has something for everyone, so each guest staying in Bristol vacation rentals will be sure to find their niche. This is a laidback city, where many of the “cool” places are informal pubs without a dress code or any pretence. Wander down to Quayside for an excellent range of pubs. If you visit just one place, make it The Apple Cider Boat. This docked boat offers delicious cider and a warm, inviting atmosphere.
Of course, those looking for a swanky night out will also find it here. Try Motion – a nightclub in a skatepark – or Cosies – an intimate wine bar cum reggae party – for two unique Bristol experiences.

Bristol is one of the best places in the UK for events, with hundreds taking place each year.

This free event transforms the city into a colourful spectacle, with music, dance and family-friendly fun all part of the weekend’s shenanigans. It’s also a celebration of Bristol’s maritime heritage, with classic tall ships dotted across the water.
Another of the UK’s best events also takes place in Bristol: the International Balloon Fiesta is held each August and features more than a hundred hot air balloons ascending into the sky. Hundreds of thousands of spectators attend the four-day event, which has been around since 1979.
If you’re moving into Bristol vacation rentals during July, you can help celebrate the city’s thriving art scene by attending Upfest, a street art and graffiti festival that takes place across the city over a three day period.
