- Bristol Museum and Art Gallery is an outstanding museum and well worth visiting. It houses collections from all over the world.

There are great sights for adults from the wildlife galleries full of rare and endangered species to modern art and archaeology. When you’re tired regroup in the cafe and enjoy a meal or a drink then head up to the second floor for some of the latest exhibitions on offer from French art to Bristol’s own 200-year-old silver collection or a stunning display of Eastern Art. Facilities include a cafe, toilets, loop system, events and shop.
- The Cabot Tower was built in the 1890s to commemorate the 400th anniversary of the journey of John Cabot from Bristol to land in which later became Canada. The tower is 32 m (105 feet) high and built from red sandstone with cream Bath stone for ornamentation and emphasis. The tower consists of a spiral staircase and two viewing platforms where balconies with wrought iron railings overlook the city, the higher of which is approximately 102 m (334 feet) above sea level.
- Bristol Cathedral has been a place of peace and prayer since the 12th Century. In 1148 Robert Fitzhardinge founded the Abbey of St. Augustine. The Chapter House and Abbey Gatehouse remain clearly to be seen: other remains are within Bristol Cathedral Choir School. The eastern end of the Cathedral gives Bristol Cathedral a unique place in the development of British and European Architecture. The Nave, Choir and Aisles are all the same height, creating the appearance of a large hall. Bristol Cathedral is the major example of a ‘Hall Church’ in Great Britain and one of the finest anywhere in the world. In 1539 the Abbey was dissolved by Henry VIII’s commissioners and the nave, which was then being rebuilt, was destroyed. The rather battered building then became the Cathedral Church of the Holy and Undivided Trinity in 1542. In 1868 plans were drawn up to rebuild the Nave to its medieval design. The Architect, G.E.Street, found the original pillar bases, so the dimensions are much the same as those of the abbey church. J. L. Pearson added the two towers at the West End and further reordered the interior. From the Twelfth Century, it has been a place of daily prayer and a place where the city and diocese have marked great occasions.
