Located in the harbour area, a 10-minute walk from our accommodation in Bristol is one of the most popular attractions in the city. The Bristol Aquarium is an attraction ideal for groups, families and couples that love the peace and wonder below the waterline. Enjoy observing tropical sharks, the beautiful sea horses, and take it all in from the amazing undersea tunnel. There is a giant urban jungle, the only one in the UK, which is home to hundreds of exotic plants and rare tree species from all over the world.

Museums & Galleries
From our Thomas House location in the heart of the city, we’re within walking distance from most major attractions. A great way to get to know a new place quickly is to visit the past.

M Shed is one of our most colourful museums showing exciting exhibits detailing the history of the city & its people from a 1950s dockside transit shed 10 minutes walk from our suites.

Clifton Suspension Bridge
Enjoy a stroll through the city, through some of our beautiful and colourful local neighbourhoods and head toward the Clifton Suspension Bridge. Arguably the most iconic backdrop in Bristol, our beautiful bridge was erected in 1864 and has been a constant on the Bristol skyline since then, attracting visitors from all over the world. Climb to the observatory and take some beautiful pictures before crossing the bridge to the visitor centre where you will learn more about its design and construction. If the weather is fine, pack or pick up a picnic to enjoy in Brandon Hill Nature Park on your way back to the city centre.
Ashton Court Estate
If the weather is fine, get out of the city and explore one of the most beautiful historic houses, soaking up culture, beauty and the great outdoors. Ashton Court Estate is located in Long Ashton, a 15-minute ride on the x4 Excel Bus or a 15-minute cycle from our accommodation in Bristol. While you’re there, you can enjoy rambling around the 850-acre parkland and mansion, checking out how the other half lived. There are two Pitch & Putt Courses, a deer park, a miniature railway and plenty of orienteering and nature trails.
