Things to do In and Around Bristol
It's impossible to visit Bristol and not go over the famous Clifton Suspension Bridge – there's even a visitor centre at one end. Its designer, Isambard Kingdom Brunel, also built the SS Great Britain, which is now a very popular waterside attraction. Further out, one of the most popular trips to make in your rental car is to the stunningly beautiful Roman city of Bath.
If you feel like exposing yourself to the unique sound and art of the city, Bristol is home to plenty of Banksy’s art and you can go on a walking tour to see the murals. If you are more into audio than visual, you can experience the ‘Bristol Sound’ pioneered by the likes of Massive Attack or Portishead in many of the city’s venues.
Bristol is also a great hub for setting out on day trips around the West Country. If you drive on the A38 and head southwest, you will get to the beautiful Mendip Hills AONB. Whilst most of the routes through this area are worth experiencing, you want to get to the town of Cheddar. There you can drive through Cheddar Gorge – the biggest gorge in the United Kingdom and the home of cheddar cheese. The Gough’s cave in the gorge provides perfect conditions for maturing cheese and you can still find cheese wheels on shelves in the cave today.
Driving Information in Bristol
The scenic Portway (or A4) route following the Avon basin is a great drive, but during peak hours, it can get quite busy. The Clifton suspension bridge has a small charge payable at the gates, so make sure you have spare change or a contactless payment car.
