Bristol is a city full of cultural and historical landmarks.  The city’s connection with the New World began through its port - a centre for trade since the 11th century.  Visit the M Shed museum to learn more about the city and its history from prehistoric times to the 21st century.  Entry is free.

A visit to Brunel’s ship, the SS Great Britain, gives visitors a glimpse of England’s history of travel to the United States. This impressive vessel is a short distance away from the centre of Bristol, at the buzzing Harbourside. Once a busy dock, it’s now an attractive, modern development filled with world-class attractions, restaurants, bars and shops.

One of the most important landmarks in Bristol is the cathedral, which was founded in 1140 and following major remodelling in the 19th century, was finally completed in 1888. The history of the building, as well as its Gothic architecture, help make this one of the most popular attractions in Bristol.

You should also visit Brunel’s Clifton Suspension Bridge. This toll bridge joins Bristol and North Somerset.  It has a fascinating visitor centre at Leigh Woods offering tours, exhibitions and children’s activities.

Bristol is well known for its nightlife.  With so many entertainment venues to choose from; whether you’re seeking a dance club or just a good pub you won’t be disappointed.

If you’re looking for a little fun with the family, a great spot to visit is We the Curious at the Harbourside.  Children love the 250+ hands-on science and art exhibits and the UK’s first 3D planetarium.

Scenic car rental rides from Bristol

There are so many scenic car trips that may be taken from Bristol; the question is where to begin?

For a taste of ancient history head to Stonehenge on Salisbury Plain.  Or the Cheddar Caves, where the oldest human skeleton ever to be found in Britain was discovered.   The caves can be found at Cheddar Gorge, a stunning area with 100-metre high limestone cliffs and varied flora and fauna.

For views of three counties – Wiltshire, Dorset and Somerset – visit Alfred’s Tower, at Stourhead, which pays homage to England’s great medieval king.

Somerset is the county of Arthurian legends and myths, open countryside, cider and the world-famous Glastonbury Festival, there’s so much to explore.

Head to Bath, the county’s best-known city with its Roman Baths Museum, Georgian architecture and many museums and galleries.

The cathedral at Wells is another popular visitor attraction. The church was constructed between 1175 and 1490 and is a particularly notable example of the Early English architectural style.

Longleat Safari Park and stately home is a must for a family trip.   With a drive-through safari, exhibitions and a stately home to explore there’s something for everyone.

No matter which car trip you choose to take from Bristol, our car rental service provides the best way to get there.
