Bristol is very well located for access to the whole of the South West of England; Plymouth, Exeter and all parts of Cornwall to name but a few. Bristol is also perfect for exploring the Avon and Somerset area. It is also close to South Wales, reached easily via the Severn Bridge. It also has the distinct advantage of being less than two hours from London. With its port right on the outskirts of the city it is a great location for businesses.

Bristol also has an international airport, offering connections with the U.S. (through NYC), over 50 cities across Europe and connections with locations such as Northern Africa. Bristol airport is the largest airport in the South West of England and also serves Wales (a high proportion of travellers from Wales tend to choose Bristol over Cardiff airport).

Spend time in Bristol before heading off on your motorhome holiday
With more green spaces than any other city in Britain, a stunning ancient harbour and a great cocktail bar scene, Bristol makes the perfect destination. Bristol is known 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 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 the 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 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.
