    Absolutely brilliant!! It is a testament to the restoration specialists and the other staff who look after this wonderful relic. Such a pity that the ship is slowly rotting away. Keep up the fabulous work so future generations can enjoy a piece of British excellence, then and now!!

    A great experience to be surrounded by lush green beauty and sights that look like a painting, photo's do not catch the majestic feel of this part of Bristol. The most beautiful part of this city. Clifton is lovely.

    Bristol is a verry pretty place and this hill anf the tower upon it is a wonderful place to get that overview of the entire city. A bit of a climb, not just the hill but the 100 or so steps, but I'd say it was worth the effort

    We the Curious is currently closed due to a fire. However, my 4 year old son and I noticed there was an activity on outside the museum. For completely free of charge my son spent 90 minutes building objects out of straws and connectors. The staff were all so engaging, kind and enthusiastic. Based on this lovely experience which I would like to say a big thank you for, we can't wait to visit when the museum re opens😃.

    M Shed is a fascinating museum with lots to see. I only wish I'd had more time to see it properly. Lots of fascinating history.

    We had already walked our legs off for a day of our visit to Bristol before deciding we to take a boat trip and see the harbour canal in Bristol.

    It was hard to find out where to get on a boat when the marketing or advertising is not great
    .
    We asked and eventually found the boars but they said they were stopping for lunch but would be
    Back at 2.00.

    We came back at 2.00 to discover
    They. See re rated up again at 1.40 - we were annoyed I can tell you however, we got on the next boat and spent 80 wonderful minutes in a figure of 8 from the city centre.

    We had the boat Margaret with skipper Sam and his lovely assistant - can’t recall her name sorry.

    These two are a real credit to your company and deserve every penny and more per hour than you pay them - ( I’m not related to them and I don’t have to say this stuff they truly are brilliant)

    They are chatty friendly and customer focussed all the time.

    There was a case of some people at. Stop no longer in use but they went across and picked them up such is their attention to the needs of those who use the ferrys.

    The things you see the human pleasure they give to people and things you see from water level is wonderful and saves legs and shoe leather.

    I heartily recommend this service but also these two on the Margaret! .

    Went there primarily for the Grayson Perry exhibition. Certainly not disappointed.
    Spreading the exhibits throughout the museum works very well and leads you to see things you may not necessarily see. Cafe is very cosy and gave us a welcome interval before continuing our tour of exhibits.

    A group of 25 members from Hambrook Probus visited the Museum and were made very welcome by the team on site. Members spent many hours looking at the exhibits and reminiscing about things they remembered from from years gone by. There was something for everyone to talk about and share memories.

    All enjoyed the Museum and time in the Café where the food was excellent and very good value.

    We really enjoyed our visit today, with teenage daughter for a long morning. We had never been before and it’s a lovely site with beautiful planting and has grown around the original historic buildings. It’s moving to another site at the end of the Summer, so catch it before it closes. The gorillas were the best.

    A must do. Tour of this stunning building lasts just over an hour. Gary, our guide, was entertaining and informative. The views from the top of the tower are incredible; lots of steps but totally worth it!

    A marvellous gothic church with an extremely interesting history. The Mary Redcliffe is just a short walk from the harbourside. Though it is old, the church has a lovely warm feeling. You are made welcome straight away by the volunteers who provide you with a laminated guide which you return before leaving. There are some fascinating stained glass windows and you must see the wooden altar shaped as a boat. This is a working parish church with a difference.

    This stylish shopping centre is not that large but is a pleasure to visit. It is a covered area but open to the fresh air. There have been a few shop closures over the past two years but the vast majority of the shops are still open.

    Was a nice tour of the camera obsecura and the cave below. Avoid if any issues with thin narrow steps or any issues like vertigo. I suffer with vertigo and struggled a little bit with the thin and narrow steps in the cave section, but was an interesting experience, and both have different views of the bridge. Also be wary of a section of the rails missing in the caves.
