Bristol | BS1

Bristol | BS1

It’s hard for me to introduce a city that I’m living in for over 4 years.
Not because I don’t know every single part of it, but because, I travel through every day or week most part of it, so after a while, it just “meh” for me.  But still can amaze me 🙂 So with that being said, I’ll try to write from it, like if it’s my first time here.

Our journey will start at Redcliffe, which is famous for the St. Mary’s church. The church building was constructed from the 12th to the 15th centuries, and it has been a place of Christian worship for over 900 years.

From there we can go left, to the harbourside, or right to the Temple Meads train station. I choose left, and you should as well:) Now, you can follow the road to the harbourside, or you can take a little walk to there between the Mercure hotel, and the Colosseum restaurant,  namely on the Redcliffe parade.

From here we can walk further to the MSHED which is a museum (free entry) that host very often other things like exhibits, and galleries like wildlife photographer of the year.

After the museum, you can walk on the same side in Whapping warf to the SS Great Britain which is also a museum on Brunel’s restored 1843 passenger liner with tours below deck and views of the propellor.
(Unfortunately, I didn’t make any photo of it, so I have to link another page for the photos.)
Or you can walk to the Queen-square through the Prince St. bridge
Queen-square is a popular place for visitors and office workers to relax, which was destroyed in 1830 by a riot. It hosts the Bristol food festival every year and other events. I like how the government preserved the historic houses around the square:)

Our next stop will be the St. Nicolas market which was established in 1743, and this is the oldest market in Bristol, which has an arcade feeling for me. Every time I stop here, just for fun, and to a look around I always been amazed by how vibrant, and buzzing this place is, despite the fact that the place is a Georgian architecture. Indoor, outdoor market, street food market you name it. Perfect place to shop, and eat.

After you ate, We can go to the Castle Park, which is situated in the city center only a couple of minutes from the market. Park has a playground, the St. Peter’s church, the medieval vaults, the newly opened Castle bridge and, of course, the park itself, which is popular with visitors, tourists, families.20180731_135608DSCF0112
Our next stop will be the College green, (I know.. We’ll not going to the shopping quater? No. we will not.)  The college green is popular with students (a couple of schools is nearby, and the UNI aswell), tourists, home of many events, you can find here the Bristol city council, the Bristol Cathedral, and the Bristol central library. (When I first arrived at Bristol I was live in the other side of the city, and I travel here every single morning to leave CV’s at the job centers and apply for jobs. after that I bought coffee, and sit for a bit, or walk in the harbourside, to collect energy, and suggesting to myself: You can do it!)
From here we can go to the Millenium square, where you can find the @bristol, which now is the We the curious a gym, a casino.
It’s been a long post, but I hope it’s been worth to read. Next time will be Clifton, and the Leigh woods.
Let me know in the comments below what should i change, or stay in this path, or just wrote because reasons 🙂
(11 preset is done, I will do 4 more, and  upload somewhere, maybe sellfy)
