What you need to know before traveling to Bristol

Bristol is the largest city in the south west of England, with a population of around half a million. Historically, however, it is also a county in its own right and occupies a narrow strip along the banks of the River Avon between Somerset and Gloucestershire. Many of the citizens of Bristol protested vehemently when it was incorporated into the newly formed County of Avon and, as a result, the County of Bristol was reinstated. The city of Bristol and its surrounding area offer a multitude of things for the visitor to see and do, and a multitude of cheap hotels to stay in. Booking your budget hotel via EasyToBook.com leaves you free to concentrate on planning which of the region’s many attractions you want to visit.

For those with an interest in all things historical, the Iron Age hill forts near the city at Leigh Woods, and on the side of the Avon Gorge at Clifton Down, are well worth a visit, as is the Bristol Museum and Art Gallery. For engineers, the Clifton Suspension Bridge, designed by Isambard Kingdom Brunel, the authentically restored decks of Brunel’s SS Great Britain and the Bristol Industrial Museum should be on the agenda. For animal lovers, Bristol Zoo is home to over 450 species of animals and the World Wildlife Trust at Slimbridge offers visitors the opportunity to walk amongst the resident species of geese, swans, ducks and birds, as well as to feed the flamingos. If you book your hotel in Bristol so that you are staying during the month of August, you will be able to see one of Europe’s largest hot air balloon events, the spectacular Bristol International Balloon Fiesta. Staying in one of the largest shopping cities in England, you will not want to leave Bristol without a final shopping spree, followed by a relaxing evening in your hotel to rest those tired feet.
