Cheapest places?

by Trollhorn43

I have been searching high and low even been to get on the housing list, I was woundering the cheapest way (except for living on the streets) can I live in Bristol? if anyone knows any cheap places for rent please let me know.

Re: Cheapest places?

by Bristol_Rich

If you are in the Bristol area try and pick up a copy of Venue Magazine. There's usually some cheap rooms to rent in there - they've also got a website, try Googling "Venue Magazine, Bristol" and you should get the results. Alternatively, The Bristol Evening Post lists places to rent on a daily basis and also has a website at:



Travel Tips for Bristol

It has been said that Bristol...

by greebo

It has been said that Bristol has one of the most beautiful entrances to a city and I for one agree with this. The Avon Gorge leading into the city is spectacular with its high cliffs, woodland and the Clifton Suspension Bridge. The gorge contains many species of rare plants and its rocky walls are a great attraction to climbers. A word of caution, do not attempt to climb the cliffs without safety equipment, the cliffs look very easy to climb but a number of people have attempted to do so and have died as there is a lot of scree and loose rocks on the cliffs and it's us Bristolians who have to clear up the splattered mess! At the bottom of gorge runs the River Avon which flows into the River Severn. The Severn is a tidal river and at least twice a year a tidal wave called the Severn Bore travels up the river and deranged people attempt to surf this bore. I know what's pumped into the river and there is no way I would ever immerse any part of my body in it.

Spanning the gorge is the Suspension Bridge designed by Ismbard Kingdom Brunel who also designed the SS Great Britain. Underneath the bridge is the Hotwells area of Bristol. The area got its name from the hot spring that used to be there before the Cumberland Basin (dock area) was widen and the spring now lies underneath the river. A hotel was built near the spring for visitors wishing to partake of the waters. The hotel is still standing but now is being renovated. I used to work in the hotel when it was owned by a engineering company and there used to be old photographs and drawings of the hotel and its guests hung on the walls. However, I believe these have now been destroyed during the renovation which is a great pity.

The Concorde

by diocletianvs

After the Bristol harbour lost its role as the most important element of Bristol's economy the city started looking for other possibilities. In the second half of the 20th Century one of the most important industries in the city was the aviation industry, located in nearby Filton. A supersonic aircraft - Concorde - was produced here and in Toulouse. The last flight of Concorde hapenned on November 26, 2003 when Concorde 216 flew from Heathrow to its final base in Bristol. After reaching the supersonic speed over the north Atlantic the aircraft flew over Clifton Suspension Bridge where only 600 people were allowed on to the structure to watch the flypast.

There is an initiative to build a museum at Filton that would have Concorde as its main attraction. Meanwhile, Bristol takes part in creation of another aviation icon - the wings of the superjumbo A380 are made in Filton.

This is one of the oldest pubs...

by pollon

This is one of the oldest pubs in Bristol, in one of the main street, Bedminster Parade, and actually I meant to snap its sign but the nice man on the corner posed for a pic and I couldn't disappoint him so I took the whole pub and him... Greebo and I found it particularly funny because he wasn't the first to want to enter one of our pics and Greebo herself said it was unusual for the normallly so serious and steady Englishmen...ahahah

Contemporary visual arts

by KennetRose about The Arnolfini Gallery

The Arnolfini faces the Watershed across St Augustine's Reach linked to it by a lifting footbridge officially known as Pero's Bridge after an 18th century African slave boy but always known as the Horned Bridge because of its distinctive trumpet-like counterweights.

It complements and overlaps with the Watershed in function - it has a specialist cinema and a very good waterside cafe, but also galleries devoted to contemporary graphic art and a performance space.

Hard to find but worthwhile

by juzz about Takala

The place is quite simple and modern. It has a karaoke room downstairs but we stayed on the restaurant ground floor. The food was really good and not expensive. For 2 soups and 2 main dishes (noodles) with 2 bottles of beer we paid £21.80 which is really ok for this value. I'm not sure but I think that this place offers also food for take away. Anyway it does not look like a typical take away bar and it's worth eating in. Singapore noodle - I don't remember what was inside but I enjoyed the dish.
