Looking for something to do in Bristol? Make this your first stop. Bristol’s regenerated waterfront is buzzing with people, museums, cafés, cinemas and galleries and is easily the best place to spend a sunny afternoon. Join runners, dog-walkers, families and lovers on a stroll around the water – this is the very heart of Bristol, from where ships left on voyages in search of spices and slaves, where Brunel built his great boat and where, now that the shipping industry has dwindled, the old warehouses have been transformed into the city’s most interesting public buildings.
If you have the time, you can do a circuit starting at the M Shed and crossing over once you reach the SS Great Britain by waterferry to the other side before returning back via the bridge. It’s a great area for people-watching, running, taking your family for a stroll and generally enjoying the buzzy atmosphere during the day. At night there are some great bars and restaurants, although the clubs have a less-than-classy reputation.
