What to see and do in Bristol
You need to know about Isambard Kingdom Brunel to get the best out of Bristol. This prodigious engineer has been voted the second-greatest Briton of all time, losing the top spot to Winston Churchill. He designed the SS Great Britain, the world’s first great ocean liner in 1843. Called the ship that changed the world due to its design innovations, the restored vessel is now a museum. Not stopping there, Brunel is also the designer of the Clifton Suspension Bridge, the symbol of Bristol across the Avon River. At the time of design, it would have the longest span of any bridge in the world. Unfortunately, it wasn’t finished until after his death. You can cross the bridge for amazing views of the Avon Gorge, or learn more about the bridge construction at the visitor centre.
Eating, Drinking and Nightlife in Bristol
Bristol has a vibrant music scene, catering to all tastes. Lakota has been a vital organ in the clubbing scene for 25 years, and the Old Duke is the city’s foremost jazz bar. Fine dining can be found at Flinty Red, a Spanish-inspired restaurant in the eatery-rich district of Cotham Hill. It has a spectacular array of wines to choose from, to pair with regular menu items such as octopus or anchovy toast. They do a great value lunch special at under a tenner.

Start with the near neighbour, the gorgeous Georgian spa town of Bath, then head for the coasts of Cornwall, Devon or Dorset.

Driving Tips for Bristol and the South-West
This is an area with great scenery and it is worth getting off the motorways to experience the back roads. Be aware of tight lanes and allow others to pass. The Cheddar Gorge is a well-used rural road just out of Bristol, through the Mendips. It can get busy, so watch out for other tourists, farm vehicles and sheep!
