Discover 600 years of history along Bristol’s Park Street
Stroll Bristol's iconic Park Street and unearth the city’s history, including the university where Winston Churchill was once Chancellor.
A walk up Bristol’s iconic Park Street will unearth over 600 years of history within 600 metres of heritage attractions and historic sites. Start at Bristol Cathedral, built in 1140, gaze at vaulted ceilings and exquisite chapels, and learn about its humble beginnings as a Chapter House through to its recent fame as a filming location for BBC series Wolf Hall.
On a sunny day, bask outside in the green space of College Green in the city’s heart, before wandering up hill, past boutique shops and cafes on the way to the University of Bristol’s Wills Memorial Building. This impressive gothic tower and hall houses Great George, England's sixth-largest bell, weighing over 9.5 tonnes and striking on the hour. Next door is Bristol Museum & Art Gallery with thousands of amazing objects on display.
