Everywhere you turn in Bristol there is something spectacular to see and do. You could entertain yourself for weeks with tourist attractions alone! As our lives are a little more restricted with government safety guidelines, we cannot encourage you to visit for yourself to experience the wonder of Bristol. You need not miss out on visiting your favourite city, however. Stay safe at home until the time is right and check out some of the best virtual tours of the best of Bristol attractions. It’s the perfect way to experience the city and plan for your return when the city reopens!
Explore Brunel’s SS Great Britain, one of the most impressive parts of Bristol’s history. Start in the ticket office for a quick gift shop browse before virtually exploring the iconic ship and learning about the history of the ship itself and the surrounding city. Navigate around the ship using their 3D tour function, exploring the ins and outs of this iconic museum. The maps have blue tags with additional sensory information about the site, including sound clips and 360° views of the Dockyard Museum and surroundings. It’s a must-do when visiting the city and a scenic 15-minutes riverside walk from our serviced apartments in Bristol.
Next on the list is a virtual visit to ‘We The Curious’ the science centre with amazing interactive exhibits for all ages, including adults! Check out this brilliant virtual tour of the ground floor to get you excited about a future visit. With over 300 exhibits, We The Curious is a must-see for all ages and takes you on an incredible journey exploring the inner workings of the world around us. You can even experience the UK’s first 3D Planetarium complete with surround sound and atmospheric lighting and features. Nothing compares to the real deal so make sure to add a visit to your Bristol itinerary.
Venture virtually inside the Bristol Museum and Art Gallery with their impressive 3D video tour. While it’s not the same as seeing these wonderful works in person, it gives you a pretty good taste of what to expect. The museum contains a huge collection of both modern and classic works, with our personal favourites including Banksy’s ‘Angel with a paint pot’ and the Egypt and Assyria Galleries. The 3D tour allows you to marvel at the art and the stunning interior of the building at the same time.
Another iconic Bristol attraction to add to your list is the 360-degree virtual tour of Bristol Cathedral. Admire the towering stained glass windows, the stunning architecture of the ceiling and see if you can work out which parts were used in the filming of the popular TV Show Wolf Hall. Add a trip to Bristol Cathedral to your Bristol bucket list and make sure to take some pictures of this impressive and beautiful building and its interior.
Last, but by no means least, The Bansky Tour. Seeking out the vibrant murals in Europe’s street art capital is one of Bristol’s must-do activities, but as you can’t be here, the virtual walking tour around the city of famous Bristol graffiti artist Banksy’s artwork will have to do for now until it’s safe to visit again. The virtual tour is impressive but not nearly as memorable as experiencing these magnificent, infamous pieces in person so make sure to book your tour before you arrive in person.
For more details of these excellent virtual tours, visit the Visit Bristol Website or contact the attractions themselves.
