Bristol

Bristol is as well known for Brunel's elegant Clifton Suspension Bridge as it is for Banksy's street art. And not forgetting Aardman, creators of plasticine superstars Wallace and Gromit. It's little wonder that innovative museums packed with objets d'art and historic relics have set up shop here. This combination of attractions make Bristol an amazing place for a family day out. Start your intrepid adventure of this southwest city at flamingo lagoons, monkey islands or the depths of the Amazon at the city's aquariums and zoo, or meander along the River Avon's locks and gorges. Shopaholics can head to the Bristol Shopping Quarter, a collective of galleries, malls and independent shops. Little chance of buying The Wrong Trousers here. With so many places to visit in Bristol, adults and kids will be spoilt for choice.
