    Bristol

    by grayfo Updated Sep 12, 2014

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Bristol is the largest city in south-west England with a population of over 430,000 and has a long history of creativity and innovation. The commercial port was in the city centre but is now re-located to the Severn estuary to the west of the city, although there are still docks etc. at the original site which was a centre for shipping manufactured goods to Africa in exchange for slaves who were then transported to the Americas. The city centre along with other important British cities was badly damaged during World War 2. Must see sights/attractions include: Bristol Cathedral, Brunel’s ss Great Britain, Bristol Zoo, The Matthew and Clifton Suspension Bridge to name but a few.

  • bath attractions - 2 for 1

    by aeb Updated Apr 4, 2011

    The city of bath is well worth a visit, very beautiful, and steeped in history.
    The train from bristol costs 12.40 off peak day day return, or 13.30 anytime day return and the journey is only ten mins or so.

    Your train tickets give you 2 for 1 entry to many of bath's attractions, eg roman baths, bath abbey(tower), glass blowing, fashion museum and also special deals on meals for two in a few of Bath's restaurants so travelling with a friend will make it a very reasonable day out.

    Good luck.
