Over 1,000 years old, Bristol is brimming with history. From the port to the centre of town, buildings, statues and landmarks can be found in every corner of this city, each telling its own story. Here are six of the best monuments to visit.
Long before Bristol was the city we know today, the area was occupied by Romans. Evidence of this is scattered across the region, but perhaps the best preserved is Kings Weston. It contains the only Roman bath suite in Bristol, as well as two mosaic floors and even evidence of Roman central heating. Kings Weston is near Avonmouth, 20 minutes by car from the city centre. It’s free and open year round.
