Bristol has an incredibly long list of things to see and do. Bristol’s landmark Clifton suspension bridge (with visitor centre) is impressive for a walk over the Avon Gorge and its scenic cliffs. Another popular choice is the restored S.S. Great Britain, a ship designed by Brunel. Car hire will not be necessary for a visit to look round this mid 1800’s wooden vessel and the harbour area, which also houses Bristol Aquarium.
Here, the marine life ranges from northern European waters to the exotic species of the tropics. Nearby, M Shed is a new type of museum portraying people’s experiences of Bristol through thought-provoking films and artefacts. Bristol Hippodrome offers theatre lovers the occasional chance to see London touring companies.
With car hire organised, many other attractions are within easy reach - Bristol’s science centre, or the affordable Wild Place project, designed to make learning about endangered species fun for young children. Bristol Zoo also has reptile house and gorillas to see, along with a butterfly forest and attractive gardens. A short drive in your hire car will take you to the Cheddar Gorge with its caves and caverns, near Wells in Somerset. Here you will find a museum and a cathedral unusually large for its setting. The impressive Wookey Hole caves with stalactites are nearby.
With car hire, why not explore the scenic roads through the Mendip Hills, Churchill with its cider factory or quaint cafés and real country pubs near Sandford and Locking? Weston-super-Mare boasts a revitalised and modern Grand Pier, with donkey rides on the extensive sands for a breath of sea air. Nearby Puxton Park offers something for all ages, including an all-weather play zone. Outside, the miniature railway and falconry centre, boats and mini golf offer entertainment - or the giant fort, a maze, friendly animals in the pet’s village and even a JCB play digger.
The sedate Victorian resort of Clevedon has an impressive pier; this tranquil town is well worth visiting for a quiet afternoon tea. Alternatively, heading from Bristol towards Gloucester, the historic and beautiful Berkeley Castle dates back to 1154 and is almost hidden in the Cotswolds. Heading north over the spectacular Severn Bridge, Cardiff Millennium Stadium is only fifteen miles away, or you may wish to explore the beautiful city of Monmouth.
