Accessible places to visit in Bristol during the Summer Holidays

As one of the most cosmopolitan cities outside of London, Bristol blends its historic maritime tradition with an inventive, vibrant culture in a lively yet laid-back manner. Bristol is home to a diverse array of events throughout the year, including the yearly Harbour festival and Bristol Pride, and it has an outstanding lineup of entertainment. Bristol is known for its outstanding dining and drinking establishments. St. Nicholas Market offers street food with international influences, and Park Street and Gloucester Road are lined with independent cafés and stores.

For each place on the list, we’ve linked to our Detailed Access Guide, which tells you all about a venue’s access. They are all 100% facts, figures, and photographs, collected by trained AccessAble surveyors who check out every single place in person.
