Bristol is a cosmopolitan city that combines the tradition of a historic port city with a fast-paced, dynamic and modern metropolis. You will soon feel at home in Bristol with the vibrant harbour-side, green spaces and artisan cafes offering you a wealth of delectable treats. Bristol has a reputation for innovation, from the launch of Brunel’s steam ship Great Britain to the first flight of Concorde.
The Millennium Square forms one of the centrepieces of the redeveloped Harbourside, forming part of the At-Bristol complex. The large plasma screen often shows sporting events and live art performances for example from the Royal Opera House. The shopping is more than you can imagine, with a combination of renowned retail parks combined with exquisite boutiques and vintage stores.
In the Stoke Croft area of the city, an alternative hub of music, street art, and community action can be found. Walk down Gloucester Road and see the home-grown shops and cafés which sit alongside small music venues and art galleries. This is where you’ll find Banksy’s mural ‘The Mild, Mild West’, voted Alternative Landmark of Bristol.
