2DAY IN BRISTOL - Through the eyes of a Bristolian!

INTRODUCTION

This is a visual diary of Bristol, the Capital of the West Country. My last one came to an end so abruptly because of my last camera braking. That led to me hastily buying a new one and now I have and have put it to good use over the last few days. I hope you enjoy Bristol's new visual diary.

Great shots. The UK seems to be having a boom in urban renewal - something which is much needed. I can't wait until I get to come back home.

Thanks mate. The UK certainly is, and it is as you say for the best, though there are some changes which I personally don't like but it will certainly be a nice change to back home to I'm sure.

Hi there, thanks for visiting and the compliment. It's been remarkably nice weather for the last week and a bit. The average day time temperature for May is about 19C and 27C was reached on Sunday!

There's plenty more to come, as many days during the week as possible but not at weekends.

Thanks. No no you are right in thinking Bristol is an industrial city! What I'll have to do some time is a tour of Bristol industrial areas, historically and presently. It's just that Bristol has had such a changeable history, it's like going from one different place to another.

Thanks very much mate. Glad you enjoyed Bristol when you last visited, I enjoyed your photos of the city when you posted them in the UK Forum.

Very nice pictures. Beautiful city. Do you have any pictures of the Clifton Bridge? We plan to visit Bristol in July. Do you have any suggestions what we must see? We only have a half day.

Thanks very much Patachou, and welcome to the new Bristol. Glad you think so.
Unfortunately I don't have pictures of the Suspension Bridge but I will sure get some if need be when I can next get up to Clifton.
Nice to hear you're planning a visit although I personally think half a day is a bit short, too short if you want to get a good feel of the city. How are you travelling and where else are you going, would it be possible for you to spend a day because that would help me plan a great walk for you to do around Bristol to get in the main sites and streets and seeing all the landmarks! There are so many things to see, and really half a day isn't long enough. If you can't make it any longer then I can osrt of point you in the right direction but all the things to see in Bristol are fairly spread out across the city.

I know a few of the Bristish cities, and I love so much that style. Clean, green, wih order. Your pictures show that. Plus the stone buildings like the churches, all that is wonderful. Mike, more please.

We are on our way to Tenby for a week holiday. Our short visit to Bristol will be an acquaintance stop. We go regularly to Wales and plan on stopping again in Bristol. Of course, we must limit ourselves to a general idea. What interest us most is the Clifton Bridge, the harbour and the SS Great Britain. I am crazy about the Industrial Revolution and Brunel's contributions to it.

Have you ever been to Castle Combe? We find it such a peaceful and untouched village.

Hey there, thanks very much, glad you like the pictures. Well we're sure getting a right mixed bag of weather at the moment for Spring and I've seen the most squirrels in the city so far this year than I have in any other year.

Hi there. To be fair, I could say the same about Spanish cities. The buildings are wonderful and the small square and plazas just characterise them to a tee. Thanks for the compliments mate, there is certainly more to come as the weeks go on.

Oh I see, well Tenby sure is beautiful. Have fun. I see what you mean as it is quite a drive all the way across England and then Wales too. In that case I can point you in the right direction. It might be better if I post an update of the sort of thing you're looking for but I can definitely recommend the newly developed Canon's Marsh area, the Cumberland Basin as well as the southern side of the Harbour around the Industrial Museum and around to Redcliffe Wharf. That is a great walk with lots of history to be had as well as the Harbourside Railway which was previously used for Industrial purposes. You also get great views of Bristol too as you walk along the riverside. You could then drive up to Clifton to the Downs park area for views of the Avon Gorge and to see the Suspension Bridge itself. Just some ideas but I'll post an update about it shortly.

Regarding Castle Combe - it's a lovely place. It's almost like going back in time. My parents got married at the Manor House with lovely surroundings and yes I've been before. Have fun on your journey.
