BRITISH ICONS OF BRISTOL

Bristol is a city straddling the River Avon and it boasts a prosperous maritime history. Its former city-centre port is now a cultural hub and the Harbourside is home to M Shed and the famous SS Great Britain which we explore in detail. Our short break takes in the social and industrial heritage of this vibrant South West hub.

The four star standard Doubletree by Hilton Bristol North is a welcoming modern hotel on the outskirts of the city. It boasts excellent wellness facilities including an indoor pool, a cosy lounge area and comfortable well equipped rooms.

Itinerary

Friday We depart in the morning and travel to Bristol where we will have time in the lovely Clifton area of Bristol. At the Clifton Visitor Centre we discover how Brunel started the iconic suspension bridge and never saw its fruition due to lack of funds. A guided tour of the bridge follows. Later in the afternoon we make our way to our hotel.

Saturday Today we visit the ship that changed the world, the SS Great Britain, another Brunel masterpiece. We have a one hour tour with an expert guide where the magnificent Victorian ship is bought to life with sights, sounds and smells. Whilst here we enjoy a ‘crewmans’ lunch of soup and sandwiches. In the afternoon we visit Concorde at British Aerospace where we have a unique glimpse into the aerospace industry over the last 100 years.

Sunday After breakfast we check out of our hotel and have free time in the city to discover a Banksy, explore the harbourside or take in any of the galleries or museums. After lunch we return to Cornwall.
