If you are not from round these parts, then Bristol is a great place to visit. It is easy to see why Cary Grant had such a soft spot for the city of his birth and returned so frequently. Bristol has been voted the coolest city in Europe (National Geographic Traveller UK’s Cool List), the best city to live in the UK by OnePoll (Oct 2009), MoneySuperMarket (Oct 2013) and The Sunday Times (March 2014 and 2017) and was listed in the top 10 cities to live in the world by Forever Sports Magazine (2016), was awarded European Green Capital 2015 and was designated as a UNESCO City of Film in 2017. If you are planning a trip to Bristol, then the Visit Bristol website has lots of useful information about accommodation and what’s on in the city. The tourist information office is situated on the Harbourside just beneath the Watershed (one of the festival venues).
M5(N) Junction 18 and follow A4 (Portway) to the city centre.
M5(S) Junction 15/M4 Jnt 19. Continue on M32 to its termination bearing right and follow signs for city centre.
There are a number of car parks within easy walking distance from the centre, situated at Rupert Street, Queen Charlotte Street and Prince Street. There is an Evening Rate available at Rupert Street and Queen Charlotte Street Car Parks at £2.60 per evening (arrive between 6pm – midnight). There is other parking at Trenchard Street situated at the rear of the Bristol Hippodrome and one underneath Millennium Square. Be aware that the centre is likely to be very busy due to the Harbour Festival. Give yourself plenty of time to find a parking place, or use the park and ride facilities at Portway, Long Ashton or Brislington.

Bus Nos 8 and 9; ask for city centre stop for Watershed and Millennium Square, or carry on up Park Street for the Museum and Everyman Cinema. Bristol Parkway is approximately 5 miles from city centre, where taxi and bus services are also available.
