Bristol’s lively harbourside is a central hub of activity, with the streets lined with bustling bars, restaurants, and cultural attractions. A popular activity along the harbourside is taking a leisurely boat trip along the water’s edge. Excursions can be pre-booked online or simply turn up for one of the many scheduled timeslots. For a more relaxing afternoon, we recommend one of the bars along the water’s edge.

One thing we love about Bristol is its vibrancy and street art. Bristol has gained international recognition for its street art scene with credit to its most celebrated graffiti artist, Banksy! The anonymous street artist challenges societal norms through his artwork, amazing both locals and visitors alike. Learn more about the street art by taking a guided walking tour around the narrow alleys and side streets, witness incredible murals that highlight Bristol’s artistic spirit.
