Clifton Suspension Bridge is a wonder of engineering, spanning the Avon Gorge and dating back to 1864. At the Bristol City Museum and Art Gallery, you can view one of the country’s best collections of Egyptology and prehistoric artefacts.
There isn’t much known about the iconic yet elusive Banksy, but we do know that the famous street artist hails from Bristol. You can get a guided tour of his work in the city or have fun looking for his pieces yourself as you walk around and explore.
Bristol Zoo is one of the nation’s best. It features more than 50 species of mammals, including lions, hippos, red pandas, gorillas and lemurs, among many others.
