We’ve had another busy month scrolling through your pictures, blogs and reviews of all things Bristol, so now it’s time to share some of our favourites! Whether it's a historic cruise on The Matthew, the colourful houses of Cliftonwood or a tasty snack from one of our great markets, it's always good to be reminded just how much there is to see and do around Bristol, regardless of your tastes and budget. 

Here are a few highlights from the past few weeks - remember to tag #VisitBristol in your posts about the city!

Bristol Street Art Guide

We love Laurent’s guide to Bristol’s street art, from large murals down to festivals, tours and smaller pieces off the beaten track. We’re looking forward to welcoming him back for Upfest later this year.

An Exploration of Bristol Through Beer

The Great Beer Dad walks us through some of Bristol’s best craft beer pubs, breweries and shops - we’re desperate to do a brewery tour now. We’re very proud of our beer scene in the city, so it’s good to have an expert give us such a resounding thumbs up!

Cycling the Bristol & Bath railway path

One of the lesser known gems of Bristol (and Bath), this cycle path cuts through some gorgeous countryside between the two cities, following an old railway line (complete with the ruins of station buildings and platforms!), and this blog from Hello it’s Gemma does a good job of convincing you why you should get on your bike this summer.

This blog crams in a lot of good suggestions for weekend visitors, from areas to visit through to good value dinners. It’s in Dutch, but even if you can’t read the top tips you’ll enjoy the lush pictures of the city at its best.
