The Bristol Harbour, its rough-and-ready days of the 19th century a memory of the past, is rapidly being recycled as it moves deeper into the 21st century. Beautiful architecture, wonderful hotels, excellent restaurants, and good shopping await visitors today along with bistros, wine bars, and art centers. The harborfront's two major attractions, if you need a goal for your sightseeing, are At-Bristol and the SS Great Britain .

Guided walking tours are conducted each Saturday at 11am April to September and last about 2 hours. Walking tours cost £3.50 per person and depart from the Beetle Statue at Anchor Square. Consult the Tourist Information Centre for more information.

Clifton Suspension Bridge, spanning the beautiful Avon Gorge, has become the symbol of the city of Bristol. Originally conceived in 1754, it was completed more than 100 years later, in 1864. The architect, Isambard Kingdom Brunel, died 5 years before its completion. His fellow engineers completed the bridge as a memorial to him.
