Bristol Free Walking Tour


Led by a fun and friendly guide, Free Walking Tours are great budget-conscious ways of exploring a new city, orientating yourself and meeting new people. Operating on a pay-what-you-think-it's-worth model, the tour ensures you get the most out of your time in Bristol, showing you where to go and what to do.

They will cover the city's history, culture and lifestyle with anecdotes and stories about residents past and present. You will see the city's famed highlights, as well as uncovering some hidden jewels. So whether you're in Bristol for a few hours, a few days or you've lived in the city your whole life, they have something for you.

Tours run every Saturday and Sunday at 10.30am and 2.30pm from in front of The Victoria Rooms in Clifton. There is no need to book; just turn up a few minutes before our departure times and look out for your guide wearing bright green. The walk lasts approximately two hours and concludes by the Harbour. And they walk whatever the weather (Yes, really!).
