This tour has something for everyone. We unravel a spectrum of iconic British architecture ranging from the Clifton Suspension Bridge and rebellious graffiti culture of street artist Banksy to the great marvels of engineering like the supersonic Concorde. We think this is what makes this varied British city so special.
Full Tour Description:
You are invited to join us on this trip to Bristol and home of turbojet-powered supersonic passenger jet airliner, Concorde whilst exploring centuries of Bristolian history in the city that straddles the River Avon in the southwest of England.
We depart and are spared the hiking of Bristol’s many hills on a coach tour of the city’s sights. This visits Brunel’s Clifton Suspension Bridge, in its stunning spot hanging high over the Avon Gorge, before heading down to his other great Bristol landmark, the steamship SS Great Britain, which was the first iron steamer to cross the Atlantic, where the port is often referred to as the 'Birthplace of America'.
We will also show you some of the amazing works of Bristol graffiti artist, Banksy, before stopping for lunch on the broad lawn outside the imposing facade of Bristol cathedral at the heart of the city. It’s a perfect picnic spot if the weather is good and for rainy days there are waterfront restaurants and markets just a couple of minutes away.
After lunch, we will head north to see the birthplace of the supersonic jet, Concorde, famous for cutting the flight from Paris to New York to just three hours. Being the home of British Aerospace, of which a Bristol company was a founding component, the city was the natural choice for developing the supersonic aircraft. Aerospace Bristol now tells not only the story of that historic partnership, but also of the great contribution that the city has made to civilisation and military aviation as well as the space race. Simulation flights of Concorde available, price not included. From there, you will return full of the revelations fand joys of a day spent in this varied and exciting city.
