Bristol: European Green Capital
Nestled in south-west England, Bristol boasts a colourful maritime history, with plenty to see and do no matter what kind of getaway you’re after. And now, thanks to its impressive investment plans for transport and energy, a reduction in carbon emissions and a growing green economy, it’s been awarded this prestigious prize.
Announcing the award, the jury concluded that Bristol “is an innovator in terms of the green economy, with a powerful communication strategy and the commitment and enthusiasm required to develop its role as a model for Europe.”
It’s a diverse and exciting city, steeped in history yet also home to a vibrant contemporary arts scene. Planning a visit? Here’s our suggestion for the perfect day in the city, which includes stop-offs at the gorgeous Botanic Gardens, the majestic SS Great Britain and the very innovative See No Evil street art exhibition.
The Bristol Hotel too, takes energy efficiency and the reduction of carbon emissions very seriously, and as a result, has been granted a GreenLeaders Bronze Award from TripAdvisor.
