Hotels in Bristol

Bristol, the most populous city in South West England, is famous for its dynamic music scene, good food, and friendly people. As one of the top destinations in the south of the UK, Bristol mesmerises visitors from the moment they cross the city's bridges, admire various examples of Banksy's famous street art, or soar over the city in a hot air balloon.

What to see in Bristol

The Bristol Cathedral is located right in the city centre, easily reachable by bus, train, or bike. Book a hotel in the Old City area if you want to stay in close proximity to the famous cathedral and other major attractions such as Queen Square and St. Nicholas Market. The Old City has medieval roots that are reflected in the particular designs of the streets. If you're an avid walker, you may discover some of the many hidden passages that connect these streets. For a different perspective, get on the water for a boat tour around the harbourside area to understand Bristol's rich history.

No visit to Bristol is complete without a trip across the world-famous Clifton Suspension Bridge. Built by the famed engineer Isambard Kingdom Brunel in 1864, the bridge has become an iconic symbol of the city. You know might that Bristol is reportedly the hometown of reclusive street artist Banksy. You'll pass by some of his earliest works of art on the sides of many buildings. If you're lucky, you may be able to book a cheap hotel deal in the Old Market area that allows you to easily discover the city on foot, and enjoy the vibrant nightlife here.
