Select Option


Explore the oldest parts of Bristol with a passionate local city guide who’ll show you the best places to grab a beer and a bite to eat.

On this self-guided GPS audio tour, you’ll walk through the oldest parts of Bristol, explore various markets, relax in a park and pass through the last remaining city gate. You’ll see some fantastic street art including two Banksy's, the cathedral and historic docks. Along the way, you’ll discover how Bristol began, what happened to the city’s castle, why there’s a clock showing two different times and why so many things are being renamed.

You’ll also have an opportunity to stop for a drink in the city's oldest pub. This tour points out a number of traditional pubs that stock locally brewed beer. You get to see a few of Bristol’s breweries too and hear the stories behind them. Whether you've been in Bristol for five minutes or five decades, you'll go away with a smorgasbord of new, independent places to grab a drink and something to eat.
