LOCAL ATTRACTIONS NEAR THE BRISTOL HOTEL

We all know the importance of location, which is why we’re proud to be situated right by the bustling, regenerated harbourside with all the attractions that it has to offer.

 
The Milk Thistle

Milk Thistle

A 10-minute walk, or five minutes by charabanc from the Bristol Hotel, the Milk Thistle is a themed venue with a difference. Hidden behind a plain door in one of Bristol’s oldest buildings, this bar and restaurant is created in the image of a gentleman’s club in art deco London, Paris or New York. Cocktail bars, leather chairs and hunting trophies are among the adornments in this loving re-creation. Entrance is by invitation or prior reservation (especially for large parties) and the doorman will order you a taxi, on the house, when you leave. Fancy dress is not encouraged, unless of course, it’s period clothing. Whatever you wear you’re guaranteed an exclusive and unforgettable evening

Queen Square

Queen Square

learn more

The elegant garden Queen’s Square, completed in 1727, is entwined in the history of Bristol. Its listed terraces were home to some of Bristol’s most colourful figures including the privateer, Woodes Rogers, later first Royal Governor of the Bahamas and known as captain of the vessel that rescued the marooned Alexander Selkirk, generally believed to have inspired Defoe's Robinson Crusoe. Isambard Kingdom Brunel was signed up as special constable to battle the rioters who, in 1831, destroyed part of the square, a job the Bristol Corporation nearly completed in 1937 when they drove a dual carriageway through it. Nowadays all is tranquil and there are few better examples of the grace and taste of 18th century urban architecture.

M Shed

Bristol’s long and proud history as one of the UK’s biggest ports is celebrated in this fascinating collection of 3,000 historical artefacts. Housed in a former 1950s transit shed at the heart of Bristol’s historic wharf, the three galleries reveal the fascinating story of the city and its unique place in the world, through the stories of the people who lived and worked here. Exhibits include the world’s oldest steam tug and several steam-powered cranes dating back as far as 1878. It’s a short stroll through the historic harbour, now a buzzing modern redevelopment, from M-Shed to the beautiful Brunel-built SS Great Britain and back to The Bristol Hotel.

St. Nicholas Market

St. Nicholas Market

learn more

A 10-minute walk from The Bristol Hotel, St Nicholas Market has something for everybody, with organic stalls supplied by local farms jostling for space with the art and craft, bric-a-brac, books and records of the Nail Market (confusingly named after four bronze tables and possibly with Elizabethan roots). Every Friday sees a food market with wonderful global street food stalls adding to the vibrant quirky ambience. The market is housed in the old 1741 exchange with fine examples of Georgian classical architecture and is the largest gathering of independent retailers.
