Fly with WOW air to Bristol, a seriously happening place with much to offer. Street art, trip hop tunes, famous bridges, Gothic and Victorian architecture, maritime madness, a vibrant nightlife, fun festivals, all the shops and interesting museums to visit. Yes, buzzing Bristol has it all and more.
Bristol is the second most populous city in South-England after London, with an estimated population of 442,500.
There‘s plenty to see and do in this thumping town; a thriving music scene, exciting exhibitions, fun festivals and other curious events.
Get your camera ready! Right on Bristol‘s doorstep lies the scenic countryside, with beautiful landscapes, spectacular coastlines and rolling hills. The charming UNESCO World Heritage City of Bath is just 12 miles east of Bristol and wonderful Wales just around the corner, and both make for excellent day trips.
So fresh and so green, green. Bristol‘s many acres of parkland and its sustainable approach earned it the European Green Capital status - being the first city in Britain to receive the award.
A fun day out in Bristol doesn‘t have to be an expensive one. We recommend a scenic stroll through the historic city center and a museum visit. You can gaze upon Brunel‘s world famous Clifton suspension bridge, a spectacular structure and one of Bristol‘s most well known landmarks, and St. Mary Redcliffe Church, a great example of Gothic architecture.
Bristol‘s maritime history is a long and interesting one and even includes pirates, as legend has it that the infamous Blackbeard, also known as Edward Teach, was born in Bristol. Arrr, matey! One of the city‘s most popular tourist attraction is the majestic museum ship, ss Great Britain - a former passenger steamship launched in 1843, which rests in the original dock in which it was built.
Graff, glorious graff. Bristol‘s street art scene is diverse and some of the artwork truly jaw-dropping. World famous graffiti artist Banksy hails from the city and his thought provoking artwork is hidden around Bristol.
