    Around Castle Park...

    by coceng Updated Oct 21, 2004
    Around Castle Park, Bristol England

    Fondest memory: I didn't venture too much around The Castle Park but just capturing the sights around The Church of St. Peter; The area is filled with trees, lined up to woo passers-by like me, maybe...
    It's a quiet area to stroll around.

    Nevertheless, this tower sits majestically by the bank of Avon River as an attraction in The Castle Park...

    Bristol Bridge in Bristol, England

    Fondest memory: 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 Originally made of timber, it was rebuilt in stone in the 13th century.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, England...

    Fondest memory: Bristol was an industrial town even during WW II hence it was bombed heavily & much of it's attractions were lost in the war; Hence many of its attractions now have been rebuilt & painstakingly retained its charm so many buildings look new...
    For me, I just like that !
    Another sight was the photo that you could see on the left. Lovely windows !
    The name says The Granary, could be the name of this building...

    Bristol, England...

    Fondest memory: This photo is a building called The Old Fish Market which is actually a pub; In the old days, it was a fish market !
    Lovely structures nonetheless for my eyes...
    In here, we can get some excellent draught ales & also a mural depicting the fish market !
    Did I go in ? No, I didn't...enough for me to see it from the outside...It's at 61, Baldwin Street; Tel : 921 1515...

    0.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: For those of you who like shopping there is a large out of town shopping centre on the northern edge of the city at Cribbs Causeway.
    There are 2 major stores there. One at each end of the Mall - John Lewis and Marks & Spencers

    FREE INTERNET ACCESS

    by Duffelgirl Updated Oct 31, 2003

    Favorite thing: For free internet access visit the Bristol Central Library (second floor). The learning centre has about 40 computers and you are allowed 2 hours of computer time per day. If you are a tourist/visitor you are able to sign on as a 'guest', otherwise you need a library card If you live in the area. Sometimes you may have to book ahead, but usually there is a free computer available. Printing is also available (10p a sheet).

    Fondest memory: The library is situated right beside Bristol Catherdral, over College Green (bottom of Park Street). You can book a computer on 0117 903 7234 (you need a library card number to do this), otherwise just pop in and hope there is a computer spare (the earlier, the better. Try and avoid lunchtimes).

    The bridge and the gorge

    by KennetRose Updated Aug 26, 2002

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: See the Clifton suspension bridge. Other suspension bridges may be longer, but this is a magnificent piece of Victorian engineering, spanning the breathtaking Avon Gorge high above the waters - or more usually mud - of the River Avon. It is as much a symbol of the city as the Eiffel Tower is of Paris or the Leaning Tower is of Pisa.

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: Check out the markets! St Nicholas Markets is a fab place for finding all sorts of stuff for bargain prices.

    Fondest memory: Well, what I miss most is of course my fiancee, who lives in Bristol!:) I cry every time I have to leave his loving arms, and am planning to move to Bristol or the neighboring city of Bath (gorgeous!) later this summer.

    I am in love with Blaise Castle Estate on the northwestern side of Bristol. It's a gorgeous park, and my all-time favourite tv series Robin of Sherwood was filmed there. It must be one of the most beautiful places I've ever visited and I hope I can continue visiting it for the rest of my life!

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: In the dock area you can also go and see the BB Great Britain, the first of great luxury ocean liners, built in 1843 and designed by Isambard Kingdom Brunel.

    It's considered the forerunner of all modern ships and was the largest ship of its day. It carried over 15,000 emigrants to Australia.

    The ticket costs you £6.50 but I cannot say if this price is worth it because Louise and I chose instead to go on with our tour of Bristol on foot and I took this pic from the other side of the river.

    But let's proceed in order...

    Favorite thing: a small church built into the old Bristol walls.

    It's preserved by the Churches Conservation Trust which look after churches which are no longer needed for regular worship but are of historic, architectural or archeological importance.

    And inside it...

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: Inside The Galleries there is the yummy Food Street, at the second floor if I don't remember wrong... here you can have a nice meal choosing among the multiethnic food stalls or have a coffe or something more like this... but I won't repeat what I have written in my food travelogue... I know I'm naughty to push you to go to my travelogue... sorry... ;-) If you don't want to go to the travelogue, I shortly explain here too: it's a chocolate fudge temptation
