There must be something in the water - how else could one city produce a constant stream of alternative and underground musical and artistic talent? Then there’s Bristol’s illustrious maritime, engineering and ecological legacy. This city even dabbles in its own currency. If that isn’t enough to entice you to stay at one of our hotels in Bristol, maybe the prospect of craft ale, cider and Bristol Cream will do it. We have a range of budget hotels in Bristol, including hotels near the University of the West of England and Bristol University.

What to do in Bristol
Once a nondescript road, Nelson Street is now lined with graffiti-daubed walls courtesy of some of the world’s best-known street artists. This outdoor exhibition is one heck of a way to shout about Bristol’s contribution to guerrilla art.
SS Great Britain
The world’s first ocean liner, SS Great Britain, has been restored to its former glory. Designed by Bristol’s own Brunel, it’s complete with authentic sounds, smells and interactive stories. There’s even a 30m rigging waiting to be climbed. Ahoy!
At-Bristol Science Centre
Anywhere that’s broken the world record for stringing the longest string of popcorn is obviously worth a visit, so make sure you go to At-Bristol Science Centre. There's a planetarium and loads of other sci-tastic stuff.
Clifton Suspension Bridge
Think of Bristol and you probably think of the Clifton Suspension Bridge. Walk across Brunel’s iconic construction at your own pace, pop into the visitor centre or go on a guided tour of this incredible feat of engineering.
In days gone by, many a voyage of discovery bound for the New World set sail from Bristol’s floating harbour. Today, people come here to discover the modern world of eating, drinking, shopping and culture. For anyone staying at our Bristol business hotels, Harbourside is the ideal place to entertain, or enjoy a spot of time-out from a hectic schedule.
