I’ve added some pictures I took last year at Bristol Docks. It’s a great place to spend a day or two.
Bristol has a rich maritime and industrial history, although some of the history is rather shameful, ie the triangular slave trading routes.
There are two Art Galleries on the waterfront,
There are numerous Bars and Cafes close by.
Crossing the Swing Bridge leads to the Industrial Museum with the three cranes outside and during the summer months a Steam train ride to the SS Great Britain.
Crossing back over the Swing Bridge, There is the Thekla Night Club. Many bars and cafes line the harbourside on the way back toward Bristol Bridge and Castle Park.
