Travel Tips for Bristol

One of the remaining segments...

by greebo

One of the remaining segments of the city walls. A very small church is built into the wall and is reputed to be haunted by a monk who hid treasure within the walls to prevent Oliver Cromwell finding it. Just outside the city walls where the bus station now stands was a very large coaching inn. My claim to fame was that it was owned at one time by my family.

The Banana Bridge

by TheLongTone

This footbridge over the Avon just along from Temple Meads station has, for the obvious reason, always been referred to as the Banana Bridge. Finally the council bit the bullet and painted it yellow and black. Part of what makes Bristol great.

Postcards with attitude, and more.

Very firmly an 'other' Appropriate Type

The headquarters or the PRSC (People's Republic of Stoke's Croft) is worth a visit if only to clock the fine tilework fish on the facade. They sell beautiful ceramic pieces by a local artist at very reasonable prices, and there are T-shirts, postcards and of course Stoke Croft fudge.

As Ryanair doesn't offer...

by pollon

As Ryanair doesn't offer flights to Bristol I also travelled by rail, in the pic a particular of Bristol railway station, and by taxi, both fairly expensive even if after taking a taxi from the airport when I landed in Italy, I'm not so sure to say that these means of transport are more expensive in Great Britain than by me... trains for sure, taxis I doubt now... ;-)

Castle Park: St. Peter's church

by Airpunk

What now is castle park, was once one of the most oldest and beautiful parts of Bristol. It was heavily bombed in WWII. Unfortunately, there was not much interest in preserving the ruins. In the 1970s, most of the destroyed buildings were pulled down. Today, it is a park in the heart of the city center. Some castle ruins are still visible, together with two churches: St. Mary le Port and St. Peter's.

St. Peter's church dates back to the 11th century, although there are evidences of an older, saxon church on that place. Many parts were rebuilt in the 14th century, with some minor changes taking place in the 17th century. Like most of the surrounding buildings, it was heavily damaged in WWII. In 1975, the walls were reinforced and the church ruin became a monument for the victims and against war, just like Berlin's Kaiser-Wilhelm-GedÀchtniskirche. Further reconstruction did not take place, so that the church has no roof and no glass windows, similar to other churches with the same function. St. Peter's is seen as the central point of castle park and is sometimes still in use for cultural or commemorative events.
