I was showing friends around Bristol and this is a great way to see Bristol and you can do a complete circuit and get good views of the whole area and saw plenty of boats and the Matthew and SS Great Britain and also good views of the suspension bridge as well as the harbour and many bridges and boats to make the walk as short or as long as you like - many eating places for those who have more time- best to explore town and get there on the bus

Bristol really has done a good job in making its harbour and docks people friendly. There are still boats being build even after all of these years and the views of the various boats buildings and industrial/maritime artifacts are fascinating. You can literally do a 360 Degree walk about as I did (I have provided a large selection of photo graphs to give you an idea of what you get to see) If you love tall ships then yes there are a few on offer and the highlight of course is the Great Britain. There are old pubs to stop off for a drink and food outlets. A really enjoyable way to spend a few hours.

It’s a definite must do if you are visiting the city. The walk around the floating harbour and docks area is excellent. The sights of Bristol’s maritime past mixed with an abundance of bars, cafes, museums, boats and trains will entertain the whole family.

This is a great area to spend a few hours just walking and absorbing the atmosphere or maybe finding a table in the sun at a cafe, bar or restaurant along the waterside.
