Hotels in Bristol


Whisk yourself away for a weekend of fun in beautiful Bristol! Located right in the heart of the city, the stylish Radisson Blu Hotel is a great base for exploring all Bristol has to offer. On the hotel’s doorstep, you’ll find a myriad of cosy cafés and restaurants, while the charming streets of the Old Town are just a few minutes’ walk away. Close by, explore legendary Glastonbury Abbey and marvel at the many historic castles.

Immerse yourself in Bristol and you’ll find pirates and castles, legendary ships and diverse architecture, contemporary street art and open green spaces. Bristol is the second largest city in the south of England and its core revolves around its place in history as a shipbuilding giant. You’ll hear stories of tobacco trading, slavery and the lives of the risky privateers and you’ll see one of the city’s incredible restored ships, the world’s first ocean liner, the Victorian SS Great Britain.

Bristol has evolved into a centre for media, science and innovation – it was voted as the first official UK Cycling City in 2008 and will carry the prestigious European Green Capital title for 2015. It’s a big bold University town, rich in history, art and culture and bubbling over with things to do. The Radisson Blu Bristol, Hotel is right at the very centre of this magnetic melting pot, close to the famous floating harbour and within walking distance of the Bristol Hippodrome and the main shopping streets. The hotel has an ideal location for you to explore – you may even bump into Blackbeard, Bristol’s most famous pirate.

The city is divided into areas, each with its own history. The Harbour has been redeveloped with shops, bars and restaurants and it’s a lovely place to spend the afternoon strolling or taking a boat tour. In the Old Town is Queen’s Square, home to some of Bristol’s oldest buildings including Custom House, which used to collect the taxes from the ships and their privateers. Big business is still done here inside the grand carved buildings. Wander the cobbled streets, pop into pubs or browse in the famous St Nicholas Market for quirky artefacts. Find the Christmas Steps, a 17th Century shopping street, or head to the flagship Cabot Circus shopping area for all things modern. The Old Market, with over 60 listed buildings, is where you’ll find antiques and vintage clothes, but when the sun sets this is the place to enjoy a colourful nightlife too. Stokes Croft feels like an open air museum dedicated to street art, including Bristol’s Banksy and in stark contrast there’s Clifton with its Georgian houses, leafy streets and the iconic Clifton Suspension Bridge built in 1831. The views from here are a reminder that Bristol is the gateway to much more – an easy day trip to the Cotswolds, the southeast and Wales beyond.
