Photo Diary: Bristol

Colourful houses in Bristol

I visited Bristol last year on a short trip where I also visited Bath. After stepping off the bus that I rode into the city, I wandered to see the Christmas Steps and St. Nicholas Market.

Feeling a bit peckish, I headed over to Pinkmans Bakery near the university. This autumn spice doughnut was very sweet but much-needed.

Energy restored, I made my way up to Brandon Hill to climb Cabot Tower. The park is full of curious squirrels and the tower gives you a great view over the city. Plus, it’s free!

A long walk later, I ended up at the Clifton Suspension Bridge, one of Bristol’s main landmarks.

Cliftonwood Crescent is where some of the famous colourful houses of Bristol can be found. Nearby you can find the pretty, ivy-lined ‘World’s End Lane’.

Wandering around this part of Bristol affords you many a view of pretty houses in pastel shades. I love the chimneys lined up on top.

A stroll along the riverside later, I ended up at the M Shed, a museum all about the city and its industrial past. A relaxing end to a very active day walking around Bristol.
