Visitor testimonials

"As a visitor to your city, our first port of call was the Tourist Information Centre - an excellent place to start, it was one of the most informative and friendliest we have found in our travels throughout Great Britain, Europe and USA.

"Armed with cycling and walking routes we spent five days exploring both the city and the surrounding area, cycling to Bath via the River Avon route and returning on the Bristol and Bath railway route, cycling to the mouth of the Avon, exploring the city and, of course, Brunel's ss Great Britain - your leaflets, especially the Hotwells Historic Trail and Harbour Heritage Trail together with the numerous information boards, must have taken so long to prepare."

"An excellent welcome and an excellent stay. Thank you."
