Don't Go Home Without

Near the Clifton Suspension Bridge are The Downs, a large public park. At the centre, the Clifton Observatory, built into a one-time snuff mill, houses a camera obscura. Like a giant pinhole camera, this darkened room at the top of the building takes "pictures" of the surrounding countryside and projects them onto a wall, making for vivid panoramic views.

Must See

Wake The Tiger, a 6-minute drive away, is the world's first amazement park. Roam through the 27 unique installations and expect the unexpected. Secret passageways and incredible immersive art all housed in an abandoned factory, this one-of-a-kind attraction is must see for your trip to Bristol.

Must Do

A 20-minute drive from the hotel, the Clifton Suspension Bridge is one of Bristol's best-known icons. A masterpiece of Victorian engineer and architect Isambard Kingdom Brunel, this 1864 bridge spans the Avon Gorge and the River Avon. That means a walk across the bridge, ending in leafy Leigh Woods, yields some impressive views - if you're not afraid of heights, that is.

Local Tips

If you're a fan of street art, keep your eyes peeled for works by Bristolian guerrilla artist Banksy. The city's M Shed museum displays the "Grim Reaper", moved from its original location on the side of a boat. At the Bristol Museum & Art Gallery, you can spot "Paint Pot Angel". Look out for the bright pink mask on the "Masked Gorilla" on Fishponds Road, a 10-minute drive away.
