Bristol County


The county of Bristol is in the southwest of England. It is the location of Bristol city, voted third best city in England, as well as numerous lovely seaside towns, idyllic villages and rural areas. Thanks to it's location near the South of England, Bristol supports one of the best climates in the UK. 




The city of Bristol has been voted the third best city in England, behind London. At one point, Bristol was the UK's premiere seaport for trading with Ireland and other easterly regions. This has created a city with a deep varied history, dating as far back as 60,000 years ago. More recently, the town of Bristol as we know it was founded around 1000AD. Now, Bristol boasts a great centre of food, drink, history and culture, as well as impressive architecture.

Bristol is based on a limestone landscape, from the Mendip Hills in the south to the Cotswolds in the north east. This creates an impressive landscape of hills and dales which lend themselves perfectly to a range of outdoor activites in Bristol. From mountain biking in the Cotswolds to Hiking and Climbing in the Mendips, there is plenty for the outdoorsy types.

Seaside Holidays in Bristol

Along the east coast of Bristol are some of the UK's best seaside resorts. Weston-super-Mare, Clevedon and Portishead are three of the main resorts, but more rural areas exist along the coast where beautiful cottages and B&Bs nestle perfectly into the landscape. This area along the coast if perfect for cyclists, owing to the gently undulating coastal roads.
