Located in south west England the city of Bristol is sometimes referred to as the capital of the West Country of England and is ranked as the fourth most visited destination in England. Although there are many things to do and see all year round, the summer months are perhaps the best time when major festivals are held in the city.
The city is best known for its street art, underground music, cider, maritime history, annual hot air balloon fiesta, aerospace industry and its Georgian and Victorian architecture. Bristol has a lot to offer of its own and is an excellent base for exploring the West Country, with relatively inexpensive accommodation and a huge choice of bars, restaurants and shops. It is one of the most culturally vibrant cities in the South of England, hosting a wide variety of visual arts, theatre, speciality shopping and live music. In recent years, young people have flocked to Bristol thanks to the city's stunning and brilliant music scene - the likes of Massive Attack, Portishead, Tricky and Roni Size have contributed some of the most outstanding back catalogue of albums in the history of British music.
