Things to do here
Bristol, once a major maritime centre, has reinvented itself as a creative hotbed. It's home to the well-known street artist Banksy, musical acts like Massive Attack and Portishead, and the city’s flourishing independent cafes and music venues have rejuvenated many of Bristol’s old industrial neighbourhoods. Bristol was also the first UK city to become a European Green Capital.
- Lido is a poolside restaurant specialising in Middle Eastern and European dishes.
- The Ox restaurant, as you'd expect with the name, specialises in meat, particularly steak.
- The Marriott Royal Hotel has been a Bristol institution since 1863. Located next to Bristol Cathedral, the hotel has retained its classic Victorian character.
