If you are only spending a short time in Bristol you may be wondering how best to spend your time. Here are a few ideas to start you off:
Discover At-Bristol -Discover science at the award winning At-Bristol science centre. Here it is all about being interactive and having fun while you learn. With hundreds of exhibits and activities to choose from there is something for all the family. Become an animator with Morph and his friends, create your own TV show, feed a skeleton and find out how the food runs through his body, see the human brain exhibit, learn about the night sky in one of the fantastic shows in the planetarium and much, much more. A day to remember!
Walk across Clifton Suspension Bridge -Clifton Suspension Bridge is the symbol of Bristol. With a height from the deck, of 76 metres above high water level it affords spectacular views of Avon Gorge – don’t look down if you suffer from vertigo! Attributed to Isambard Kingdom Brunel the bridge was the dream of a Bristol wine merchant who left a legacy to build a bridge over the Gorge over 150 years ago. There is a Visitor Centre at the Leigh Woods end of the bridge if you want to learn more about the construction of the bridge. In the evenings the illuminated bridge provides an impressive sight especially when observed from a distance.
Bristol Aquarium -Bristol Aquarium is a "must see" attraction for lovers of the marine world. Watch native species such as North Sea fish and Deadly Weaver fish swim around a sunken ship’s hull. Step into the glass underwater tunnel running through the centre of a coral reef and come face to face with sharks, rays and other colourful species. Visit Velcro the Giant Pacific Octopus. Journey through the Amazon on the multi level walkway and see Turtles, Stingray and other freshwater species. Time your visit to coincide with a "talk and feed" session to experience the Amazon coming to life.
