Discover Bristol on a budget city break


From Banksy to Brunel, pirates to parks, Bristol on a budget is perfectly possible

No need to blow the budget on a visit to Bristol, there are oodles of free things to do to entertain all ages. Home to Banksy as well as many other iconic artists, Bristol’s streets are alive with street art - head to Stokes Croft to spot the largest and most diverse selection. You’re never far from green space in Bristol, the city is home to over 400 parks and gardens – head to the Downs for a good old game of conkers in autumn.  Bristol’s world famous landmark bridge makes for breath-taking sightseeing - journey across Clifton Suspension Bridge to the fabulous grounds of Ashton Court Estate. Brave the natural rock slide on the Clifton side of the bridge and combine with a stroll through pretty Clifton Village. Thirsty for knowledge?
