Christmas Steps

The quirky and historic Christmas Steps area may charm you with its architecture, but you’ll fall in love with its shops. Home to the Christmas Steps Arts Quarter, the area is full of independent art galleries, pottery studios and creative talent.

If you’re searching for a gift, souvenir or statement piece you will find unique pieces of artwork from some of Bristol’s best up-and-coming artists, and some of the areas most established names for sale in these eclectic and exciting shops.

Go off the beaten track and explore the intertwining streets and alleyways surrounding Colston Street, Park Row, St Michael's Hill and Upper Maudlin Street where you’ll find an enchanting array of independent shops, studios, bars and cafes.

A hidden gem, the Christmas Steps arts quarter is located next to the Old City and borders Park Street and Triangle area. Whether you plan your visit, or stumble upon it, make the most of your time in the area by sampling a beer or a cider at one of the many pubs, including some brewed right there at the Zero Degrees microbrewery.

To gain a glimpse into the past, stop to enjoy the historic Fosters Almshouses, or travel back in time at the Red Lodge, an original 17th century townhouse museum that’s completely free to enter and enjoy.
