There is a lot to love about Bristol. From stunning scenery to a fantastic social scene, Bristol is a city with something for all tastes. The creativity of our residents and the cultural heritage of Bristol has been felt across the world and we continue to top polls of best places to live in the UK. Living in Bristol and visiting are very different experiences but at PREMIER SUITES Bristol our spacious, comfortable serviced apartments give you the best of both worlds. Here’s why Bristol is a fantastic place to live.
We may live in a city but it’s not all concrete and high-rise. Bristol is one of Britain’s most beautiful cities with a unique combination of historic architecture, waterfront views and gorgeous landmarks. Bristol Cathedral, the Victoria Rooms, Wills Memorial Building, and The Hatchet pub can all be seen on a daily commute to work. The Harbourside area, once a bustling dock at the heart of a global trading network, is now a modern, attractive neighbourhood filled with bars, restaurants, museums and galleries. For panoramic views of our stunning city and harbour, climb the 105ft Cabot Tower. Don’t forget Bristol’s iconic landmark -the Clifton Suspension Bridge, now classed as Grade I listed.
World-Class Arts & Culture
The effects of Bristol’s art scene continue to be felt across the globe. We have a reputation for underground music and street art scenes, as well as the strong links between local art and political activism. We have produced talent like Banksy and Massive Attack, who started their careers in the many local venues around the city. Local arts, theatre, and music scenes continue to thrive offering locals and visitors a unique preview of productions before they hit a wider audience. There are several galleries and venues across the city where you can indulge your passion for creativity, including Bristol Museum and Art Gallery and The Arnolfini. Underground venues include The Old Duke, Trinity Centre, Lakota, and Motion Bristol.
Bristol is a mecca for shoppers. Broadmead, Bristol’s fully pedestrianised shopping quarter, is home to such a variety of national stores and independent retailers, you’d swear you were in a larger city. The Harbourside is full of independent shops, restaurants, bars, and an excellent street food market. You’ll find high street and high-end names in shopping centres including The Galleries, Cribbs Causeway, and the most popular of all, our neighbour Cabot Circus which contains over 120 retail outlets. Take ramble along our pretty streets discovering the best local, independent retailers selling goods you won’t find anywhere else.
Whether you’re into art, music, comedy, food, beer, films or… balloons, Bristol has a festival for you. The city is a haven for creatives and festival lovers, playing host to tens of festivals over the year to suit every taste. Music lovers enjoy Valley Fest, Love Saves The Day and Glastonbury – the UK’s biggest music festival –is just down the road. Europe’s largest graffiti and street art festival, Up fest, is held here in May. Bristol International Balloon Fiesta -Europe’s largest gathering of hot air balloons –comes to town in August. Time your visit well and enjoy one of the many great events in Bristol this year. Bristol, Brimming with History The rich and varied history of our city surrounds us every day in ways we don’t even realise. Bristol’s history as one of the world’s major maritime trading cities is commemorated by the SS Great Britain, Isambard Kingdom Brunel’s famous feat of civil engineering. In the city centre, there are several self-guided walking tours available online for those who want to explore Bristol’s historic churches, the city’s gothic architecture, or who want to learn the stories behind its many famous statues.
Live Like a Local
You can explore the grass rootsparts of the city but when you retire to a commercial, carbon copy hotel in the city you can’t experience it like a local. Aside from lack of space, hotels have a distinct lack of facilities for guests to truly make themselves feel at home. Enjoy a home from home experience and explore the city like a local when you book a stay in PREMIER SUITES Bristol. Our location, facilities(including a fully-equipped kitchen and living space)and warm welcome make us a unique accommodation option for visitors, whether you’re here for a weekend or a couple of months.
Book your stay in PREMIER SUITES Bristol on our official website for exclusive access to our best available rates and special offers. Make yourself at home in our suites, enjoying home comforts you could only wish for from a traditional hotel.
