Vacation Idea Bristol

Here is a fun vacation idea Bristol

Bristol is the unofficial capital of the West Country of England. Bristol ranks fourth in England’s top visitor destinations. The best time to visit is in the summer when major festivals are held in the city.

The city is famous for its Georgian and Victorian architecture, street art, underground music , cider, maritime history, annual hot air balloon fiesta, green credentials, aerospace industry and Brunel’s legacy of civil engineering, embodied by the harbour, SS Great Britain and the world famous Clifton Suspension bridge.

This city was largely flattened in the second world war but has gradually been regenerated and is now one of Britain’s most attractive cities in terms of its architecture, nightlife and culture. Accommodation is available for a range of budgets and tastes.

Bristol is the United Kingdom’s eighth most populous city and the most populated city in South West England, making it a core city in England. It received a Royal Charter in 1155 and was granted county status in 1373. From the 13th century, for half a millennium, it ranked amongst the top three English cities after London, alongside York and Norwich, until the rapid rise of Liverpool, Birmingham and Manchester during the Industrial Revolution in the latter part of the 18th century. Bristol borders the counties of Somerset and Gloucestershire and is also near the historic cities of Bath to the southeast, Gloucester to the north and Cardiff, the capital city of Wales, to the northwest. The city is built around the River Avon, and has a short coastline on the estuary of the River Severn where it flows into the Bristol Channel.

Although often overlooked as a tourist destination, Bristol has a lot to offer of its own and is an excellent base for exploring the West Country, with relatively inexpensive accommodation compared to some of the main ‘tourist traps’ and a huge choice of bars, restaurants and shops. It is one of the most culturally vibrant cities in the South of England, hosting a wide variety of visual arts, theatre, speciality shopping and live music.

In recent years, young people have flocked to Bristol thanks to the city’s stunning and brilliant music scene – the likes of Massive Attack, Portishead, Tricky and Roni Size have contributed some of the most outstanding back catalogue of albums in the history of British music, not bad for a city, as late as the early 1980s, considered a backwater of the British music scene. Indeed, in 2010 Bristol was voted Britain’s most musical city.
