what to do in bristol

Bristol is the jewel of the south west.

A lush English belle of a city that stands on its own when it comes to architecture, culture, music and sheer proximity to Wales. But for a relatively small place, it can still be tricky to traverse. That’s why we’ve taken the time to unearth all the best places you want to be visiting while you’re here.

Follow our Bristol taxi driver’s guide for great advice on where to go, drink and chow down in this west country mini metropolis.

To anyone who’s never been to Bristol before, the first thing you’ll probably fall in love with is the accent. Trust us, once you’ve been called ‘my luvverly’ for the first time, you’ll never want to be addressed any other way again.

Step out of the train station at Temple Meads and you’ll quickly grasp the ‘other’ beauty of Bristol. Tall, sloping hills stretching upwards in every direction (Bristolians aren’t afraid of a big hill – perhaps one of the reasons everyone’s so fit around here).

But to get to know the city better you’ve got to really get under its skin. Boasting a rich history of ocean trade, musical innovation and outright invention, this is a place worth getting to know.

Bristol is not only the birthplace of Ribena, it also lays claim to being the first place to create blankets, chocolate bars and of course, drum & bass. As well as being home to the elusive street artist Banksy and at one time, lauded architect Isambard Kingdom Brunel. We know, it’s a lot to take in right? There’s really only one way to do it properly. Book with Addison Lee and you’ll be choosing more than just a Bristol Taxi service. You’ll be choosing better standards, fair pricing and above all, a service you can rely on.

Whether you’re local to the area or it’s your first time visiting, Addison Lee are here to help.
