The easiest would be to take the M4 then M5 South and get off at the A4 Avonmouth turning. Follow the A4 Portway until you get to the flyover at Cumberland Basin. Take the right hand lane up the flyover and the third turning after that off the dual carriage way to the car park for the fiesta. It will be very well signposted at that stage.

It certainly is on the west edge of the city, where the A370 from Weston-Super-Mare meets the A4 from Avonmouth in Ashton Court Estate.

I waa driving down the A370 to work yesterday morning and was surrounded by balloons on all sides - it was absolutely amazing!

Travel Tips for Bristol

Enjoying The Sights...

by coceng

Now, I took the previous photo on a bridge called Bristol Bridge; The bridge provides the origin of the city's name - Bricgstow meaning "settlement by the bridge". Originally made of timber, it was rebuilt in stone in the 13th century.

Bristol Time

by TheLongTone

The clock on the Exchange building in Corn Street is unusual in having two minute hands, one showing London time and another showing Bristol time.

Bristol is around 2º35' west of Greenwich, so Bristol time is a little over ten minutes afte London time. The London hand is the junior, only being added when the coming of the railways made a unified time system for the whole country a necessity.

The exact time used to be of great importance in Bristol. In any port the tides are important: the tidal range at Bristol is the second highest in the world, and there's a lot of Avon to negociate before you reach the open sea.

Holology fiends should also take a look at the clock on the Baroque tower of All Saints chuch opposite the end of Corn Street. Only the usual two hands, but an amusing pair of quarter-jacks, carved and painted figures who swing out and whack out the chimes every quarter of the hour.

Go to the cafe on the right at...

by rbaynton

Go to the cafe on the right at the bottom of St Michael's Hill. On the corner you can see a real live optical illusion. The tiles on the cafe wall are simple rectangular tiles, it's just that the arrangement of light and dark tricks your brain into seeing them as being thicker at one end than at the other, causing a wavy line effect.

A taste of old Dixieland

by KennetRose about The Old Duke

This pub in a part of the city more redolent than most of its maritime past has made a speciality of live traditional jazz.

In the summer, the music and the drinkers spill out into the street outside.

For more modern jazz, the counterpart is the Albert in Bedminster, across the Avon.

As Italian As Spaghetti

by marilynmondoe about Sergios

Sergios is a fabulous Italian restaurant which feels very authentic .

It always busy but in a buzzy way.

The decor is simple and cosy, and not at all bright and brash.

Its my favourite style of Italian restaurant. Not trying to be anything but good ole fashioned Italian!!
As good as a couple of London italian restaurants I've been too.

Get this! - I was even flirted with by the Italian waiter even though my boyfriend was right opposite - how Italian is that!!!! bless 'im (didn't stand a chance though.......) They made me my favourite Penne Arrabiata (not on the menu) Gorgeous
