Just Visiting: Bristol

Bristol is a fantastic city. It is rife with music, markets, street food and art. You can even see an original Banksy if you go to the right places. The city has a rich history; you can learn a lot about how Bristol was once a hub for Britains involvement in the slave trade in the 18th century before it was abolished in 1807 and the city’s association with Victorian engineer Isambard Kingdon Brunel who designed the Great Western railway between Bristol and London Paddington, designed the Clifton Suspension Bridge in the city centre and built two ground-breaking steam-powered vessels in SS Great Britain and SS Great Western, the former of which is situated in Bristol Floating Harbour.

Recently me and Harriet spent an afternoon walking around the historic Floating Harbour in Bristol City centre following the Harbourside Walk on a day when the weather was glorious. Here are some pictures from our day.

We don’t spend as much time in Bristol as we would like.

We have completed a few more walks that have been in and around the Bristol area like Frome Valley Walkway and Severn Beach to Bristol City Centre along the Severn Way which will be posted soon.

Hope you like the pictures and, as always, thanks for reading.

Keep Exploring!

Best Regards,

Adam & Harriet
