Driving in and around Bristol

Bristol

There are so many beautiful places to see on a driving vacation around Bristol Airport, from the verdant Mendip Hills to the ancient Cheddar Gorge, the rustic Somerset coast to the heritage city of Bath. You can reach all these destinations and more within just a few hours.

For Bristol, follow the A38 highway east. The speed limit along most of the A38 is 40mph, so you should reach the city in around 25 minutes. There is on-street parking available in the center of Bristol – simply pick up a pay and display ticket for 30 minutes of free parking and pay per hour for up to three hours after that.

On the outskirts of the city there is more flexibility, with some parking lots allowing you to park for up to 24 hours with a pre-paid ticket.

First-time visitors should note that vehicles drive on the left side in England and the national speed limit on main highways and divided highways is 70mph.

Main roads marked by signs with grey circles and a black diagonal stripe are designated national speed limit, which is 60mph. In built-up areas the limits fall to 30mph and even 20mph, so keep an eye on the signs.

Renting a car at Bristol Airport brings one of England’s most picturesque cities within reach. Bath, the former Roman spa town, gave the world Jane Austen and is home to some of the most charming urban landscapes in the country. It’s just an hour’s drive along the A4 from Bristol Airport.

A quick guide to Bristol and beyond

Bristol

Stretching along the banks of the River Avon, the city of Bristol is a buzzing commercial center famous for the Clifton Suspension Bridge. If you’re driving into the city, you’ll cross the river further down over the Bedminster Bridge. Across the water you’ll find a lively English town full of independent stores, historic architecture and plenty of cultural hotspots.

Bridges and Banksy

Bristol has an eclectic identity, combining industrial landmarks, cutting-edge music and a strong student population. There’s plenty to see and do throughout the year, with weekly gourmet food markets popping up by the harbor and street art tours proudly showing visitors the city’s collection of original pieces by the mysterious street artist Banksy.

The first stop on your Bristol vacation should be the Clifton Suspension Bridge. Spanning the Avon Gorge, this is one of England’s premier industrial landmarks. Built by Isambard Kingdom Brunel, the iconic railway bridge captures the spirit of Bristol’s industrial past and attracts photographers and artists in droves.

Meanwhile, fans of contemporary art flock to the Stokes Croft area. It’s in this cultural quarter of the city you’ll find Banksy's earliest street graffiti, with some of his most famous work still on public view.

The natural world

Head to the city center to visit the Bristol Aquarium, walking through a maze of underwater tunnels while creatures from the deep swim overhead. From here, it’s just a 15-minute drive to Bristol Zoo, which is another fantastic attraction if you’re traveling with kids.

Round off your trip with a feast by the water. Huddle into a traditional pub for all the English classics or head to the weekend markets on the harbor side to enjoy flavors from around the world on Saturdays and Sundays.

Road trips from Bristol Airport

Less than an hour away, Bath is a charming place to spend a day. The hot, spring waters are the main attraction here, with both the Roman Baths and the modern Thermae Bath Spa providing a relaxing experience, the former spiced with history.

The honey-colored Georgian architecture conjures up images of period costume dramas, especially in the Royal Crescent district. There’s plenty to see outside of the city too, with attractions such as Stonehenge, Avebury and Longleat Safari Park all within an hour’s drive of Bath’s center.

For a quirky day trip, head to Cheddar – a small countryside village in Somerset, famous for its cheese and limestone. This is a paradise for geologists, rock climbers and cheese-lovers and it’s only 20 minutes’ drive from Bristol Airport.

Equally captivating for both business and pleasure, renting a car at Bristol Airport is a great way to experience this lively corner of the British Isles.
