This is one of our Tours that has something for everybody, because we show you examples of iconic British architecture such as the Clifton Suspension Bridge, alongside the rebellious graffiti culture of street artist Banksy and great marvels of engineering like Concorde, which 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'.
You’ll also see how the city makes both modern and ancient history, taking in some of world-renowned Bristol graffiti artist Banksy’s most memorable works 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 out of town towards the home of the one of the most impressive aviation experiments of the last few decades, Concorde. 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 craft. 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. From there, you will return full of the revelations and joys of a day spent in this varied and exciting city.
