Settle into one of our Holiday Inn Express® hotels in Bristol before setting out to see the sights. In no time you’ll be enjoying thriving nightlife in the city center or touring the gleaming wooden deck of the SS Great Britain, once the biggest ocean liner in the world.
This former industrial stronghold is now a vibrant, progressive city with some of England’s top attractions. As a guest in one of our Bristol hotels you’re right in the heart of the action. Stroll into Clifton and shop along Whiteladies Road or enjoy the scenic views over Avon Gorge from the magnificent Clifton Suspension Bridge—the pedestrian walkway is always free. On the other side of the gorge, the wooded grounds of tranquil Ashton Court are a popular destination for locals on sunny afternoons.
Bristol has a rich restaurant culture, making it easy to find a range of dining choices in close proximity to our Bristol hotels. Inexpensive Indian curry houses and Italian restaurants do a roaring trade in Clifton, and most city center pubs offer an excellent selection of locally made ciders. Our hotels in Bristol are close to the Bristol Old Vic theater and the busy nightlife of the city center and waterfront districts. Bristol’s bohemian heart has made it a center for the arts and nurtured a thriving music scene. Look for works scattered about town by the world-famous street artist, Banksy, and listen for the music of hot new bands in venues all over town.
Stay in our hotels in Bristol and experience the unique atmosphere in this forward-thinking city. Take a spelunking tour in nearby Cheddar Gorge, home to Britain’s most famous cheese—which legend has it was first made in these caves in prehistoric times.
