Vacation rentals in Bristol
The English metropolis on the River Avon is an ideal destination for families and culture lovers and offers a correspondingly wide range of holiday accommodation in all price ranges. You will find what you are looking for in a cosy vacation rental or a modern apartment, especially in the centre of Brandon, Spike Island, Southville and Saint Agnes. There you will not only benefit from the wide range of restaurants and sights, but also from the good public transport connections to the surrounding area. Alternatively, you can move into a vacation rental in the countryside on the outskirts of town, from where it is also not far to the coast.
Vacation in Bristol
Travelers and Activities
Both young and old get their money's worth during a holiday in Bristol, which is primarily due to the fact that Bristol has both historical sights such as the Wills Memorial Building and attractions such as the Aquarium. The latter in particular, with its elaborately designed underwater worlds, is part of every visit. But that's not all, animal lovers can get up close and personal with wolves and brown bears when visiting the Wild Place Project outside. The family holiday is rounded off by a trip to the Aerospace Bristol aviation museum and a ride on the Avon Valley Railway steam train.
Things to know
Especially on the southwest coast of England there is a high season between July and September, especially since a jump into the North Sea is possible at this time. However, families and culture holidaymakers can also take advantage of spring and autumn, when the climate is also quite mild thanks to the Gulf Stream.
The history of the Robinson Crusoe has its origin in the local "Llandoger Trow Pub". The "real" Robinson named Alexander Selkirk told his story to the novelist Daniel Defoe.

Built in 1854, the Clifton Suspension Bridge is Bristol's landmark. The walk over the suspension bridge is therefore part of every holiday in Bristol, especially as you can enjoy magical views from there.
