Historic area of Bristol

Fond memories of these docks which never fade. Great restaurants on these docks and often entertainment in the area from food festivals to firework displays and musical events.

Lovely place to visit for a weekend walk, even on a rainy day! Plenty of little cafes to call in to for a cuppa and the M Shed museum which is completely free!
