Overview of your Bristol tour:

Bristol played a big part in the development of the colonies, which eventually became an Empire and more latterly a Commonwealth. Some of its citizens profited from the transatlantic slave trade. This guided walk covers this rich maritime history. It also takes in some of the historic harbour and what remains of the medieval city which John Cabot left in 1497 when he sailed westwards across the Atlantic to find Newfoundland and Nova Scotia. Now a vibrant modern city with an attractive cafe culture Bristol still cherishes its rich heritage and links with personalities from the past such as Cabot, John Wesley, William Penn(sylvania), and Cary Grant (known to Bristolians as 'Archibald Leach'). My years as a local 'Bobby' have also given me a unique perspective and knowledge as well as a fund of anecdotes to share. This tour can be adapted as a shore excursion from cruise ships docked at Bristol (Portbury/Avonmouth). Please message me for before booking.

Your Bristol tour itinerary

Meet/start at any mutually convenient location (eg your hotel reception). There are many options but a typical tour will include the historic harbour, the old commercial heart of the city, Corn St and 'The Nails', the site of Bristol Castle and you will hear tales of piracy and slavery. It can of course also be customised to suit your preferences, please ask. There is an option to extend this tour to visit the 19th century Clifton Suspension Bridge, the symbol of the city where there are spectacular views. It is reached by a short bus ride or taxi ride. Please message me to arrange a 'customised' tour for you.
