sometimes feel like a village. It is a city built on trading with much
of its former maritime heritage now transformed into buzzing independent
harbourside businesses in which to eat, drink and let your hair down.
Both water and green spaces abound. And you'll have to get used to hills
when exploring this cosmopolitan city because like Rome, Bristol was
built on seven of them. Step away from the obvious - the Clifton
Suspension Bridge and the SS Great Britain (both designed by Isambard
Kingdom Brunel), or the wonderful We The Curious where science and art
collide - and discover unexpected treasures such as secret gardens,
hidden memorials to the past and unusual modes of transport.
through the old haunts of world famous pirates; past the Oscar-winning
animation studio home to Morph and Wallace & Gromit; along shopping
streets that sell everything from handcrafted violin bows to
locally-made gin; and through an indoor market selling everything from
spices to fossils. If you know where to look, Bristol will unravel its
secrets in front of your eyes.
