This area of Bristol, accessible on foot and within a relatively short distance of the train station, is worth visiting if you’re making a day trip to the city. They’ve got a cool mix of ‘new urban’ and ‘old industrial’ vibes.

The scene is pretty, with the water and the city of Bristol (with its classic colorful houses, etc.) rising on the cliffs about the water.

There’s an interesting museum about the history of the area. And you can visit some historic boats.

The area made for a nice walk at the end of my day in Bristol. If you want time in the museums, though, you should head here towards the beginning of your Bristol visit.

All in all, interesting and fun.

Visited Sept 17th, walked all the way round the dock lands and had no idea what a special place this was. Loads of History, the SS Great Britain, a Steam Train going up and down, great atmosphere and loads of places to drink and eat. Even a Ferry to help you across if you want to skip the long walk to the bridges. Absolutely beautiful settings and will be going back soon, love this place.
