About

This walk focuses on the slave trade and its impact on Bristol, and will incorporate the 1,000 year history of Bristol as a port, a summary history of Bristol’s participation in the English and British slave trade including the abolition of the slave trade in 1807 and the abolition of slavery in 1833, and reference to Bristol born Edward Colston, an official of the Royal African Company, and his divisive legacy to Bristol. The walk will take in the historic harbour of Bristol including the Floating Harbour, the City Centre, Park Street, Bristol Cathedral, Pero’s Bridge, John Cabot’s statue by the Arnolfini, Queen Square and King Street.

The walk runs every Sunday (up to 29 November 2020) starting at 12 noon from outside the Radisson Blu Hotel and takes about 2.5 hours.
