How to get there

What people are saying

I’ve lived here for 24 years and I saw interesting sites, buildings, alleys etc. that I didn’t know existed. We stayed within old Bristol and Martin entertained us with anecdotes about sites we’ve passed many times and never noticed. Who knew Castle Park was so big? Spotted some excellent independent cafes, turn off the main streets, avoid the chains and there are some gems around. Thoroughly recommended for visitors and residents. Signed book and one of the best coffees incl - don’t miss out!

Great walk around Old and newer Bristol City. Martin did rise to the challenge and showed us plenty of little intricacies of Bristol which although we have walked through the streets many many times and followed a good number of walks he found plenty of interest. Even found a bonus Queen Ann drain pipe.

A fun and informative tour around interesting places in Bristol, discovering hidden corners that I had failed to notice in all the years I've lived here.
