History of Bristol
The original town of Bristol was listed in the Anglo-Saxon Chronicle of 1051 as a port trading regularly with Ireland and it certainly played an extremely important role in sea trade for hundreds of years following this, but as the scale of business and trade grew in the city, so did the need to develop the narrow and relatively small harbour which never happened, or could do for that matter.
Transport around Bristol
Situated right next to the M4, although traffic can get busy sometimes, the road connections mean the chance to connect to other cities across Europe and also get to ports such as Southampton, Plymouth and Portsmouth are relatively easy.
Wherever you intend to travel it certainly does make a good starting point for your motorhome tour.
When you hire your motorhome from us, you may decide that you would like to park your motorhome up at a campsite nearby and go on a day trip by train.
There are two main train stations, Parkway and Temple Meads. Temple Meads Station is the main station for access into and out of the city.
It is easy to do a day trip to Bath, London, Birmingham or Cardiff. These are cities within easy reach by train. There are lots of possibilities. We can help you with ideas.
Spend time in the City and enjoy the sights
With more green spaces than any other city in Britain, a stunning ancient harbour and a great cocktail bar scene, it certainly makes the perfect destination.
It is known worldwide for the historic Clifton Suspension Bridge, its annual hot air balloon fiesta and the fact that it is home to Concorde, one of the world’s first supersonic jets.
It’s an amazing place to discover. Walk around the streets of Bristol to spot Banksy original artworks, stop off for coffee at farmers markets and find great independent shops in this quirky, elegant and fascinating city.
Shopping in Bristol
In the centre of Bristol City, you’ll find all the big stores including House of Fraser and Harvey Nichols. For one of the oldest and most charming shopping streets in the city, head for Christmas Steps.
This ancient, cobbled street is tucked away close to the Bristol Hippodrome Theatre and still has a stone plaque to explain how the street was ‘stepped in September 1669’, to create the cobbled slopes and steps which remain today.

We also offer you the chance to take a luxury motorhome out for the weekend in Bristol, with one of the experience packages that we can organise and arrange for you to help put your mind a rest.
