On your next trip to the port city of Bristol make sure to consider employing our Bristol car hire services as your main means of transportation. The city is very well known for its maritime history but it also offers a load of attractions alongside hotels, bars and other assorted events.

The city is served by the Bristol Airport which is located eight miles from the city center. The airport is connected to the city via a bus line and taxis but your best bet would be to employ our Bristol car rental services and have a car of your choice ready and waiting for you at the airport as soon as you land.

Once in the city you will notice that there will be quite a few things to see and do, a lot of them based around the city’s maritime heritage such as Brunel’s Great Britain which is the first passenger steam-powered liner to feature an iron hull. Built in 1843, the ship is now housed in a dry-dock and open for visitation.

The Clifton Suspension Bridge is probably Bristol’s most well-known landmark, another of Brunel’s creations, the bridge spans the Avon Gorge and the visitor center can be found on the other side of it.

Then there’s the Cabot Circus shopping mall where you can find over a hundred and twenty shops so no shortage of shopping opportunities while in central Bristol to be sure.

On a different note the Bristol Museum and Art Gallery exhibits an extremely diverse range of artifacts and objects ranging from sea dinosaurs to paintings.

There’s a huge open space within the city offered by the Clifton Downs, and this is  a great place to see over the Avon Gorge and obviously the suspension bridge as well. On top of the downs you will find the Observatory where you can find a “camera obscura” as well as a cave which leads down towards the observation point deep within the sheer cliff face, very interesting indeed.

These are just a few of the things that you can see and do while in Bristol so make sure to consider employing our Bristol car hire services in order to enjoy these and many more attractions.
