If you are looking for a unique way to get around Bristol, then look no further than the waterbus. This service provides an easy and affordable option that will take visitors all around this beautiful city! With 17 stops throughout its 364-day run (come rain or shine), there’s sure to be one close enough where you can grab your ticket on board too!.
Bristol’s floating harbour is a true hidden gem. Although it’s located in the heart of the city, it feels like a world away from the hustle and bustle. Arriving by train at Temple Meads station? Hop on a ferry (the stop is just a couple of minutes walk from the station) and take a leisurely trip to Bristol’s Shopping Quarter, the City Centre, We The Curious, The Aquarium and of course what better way to arrive at Brunel’s SS Great Britain than by water? The Harbour offers a huge range of bars, restaurants, markets and cafes too as well as the bigger attractions. Whether you want to explore the great things to do in Bristol or simply relax with a coffee and watch the world go by, the floating harbour is the perfect place to do it.
Whether you’re looking for a quick fix of fresh air or want to take in some sights and sounds, there is no better way than staying onboard one of their boats. You’ll be able to see the city from an entirely different perspective with stops at various areas around town!
Why not take a relaxing 1-hour cruise along the feeder canal, through Netham Lock to see how beautiful it is around here? Explore all of these amazing spots like otters (that really do live in their own world!), ducks who always seem ready for an adventure; swans can often be found wading near the shoreline waiting patiently until somebody comes by – but only if you’re lucky! 😉 as you glide into Beeses Tea Gardens, nestled on a riverbank.
You’ll be able to enjoy lovely river trips, Sunday roasts at Beeses Bar & Tea Gardens or even an informative wildlife cruise – see their website for dates of operation as well as booking information before you go because space is limited each time there’s availability (it fills quickly).
Or you could jump aboard the Gin Cruise! Spending a fun-filled evening sailing around Bristol’s beautiful harbour while enjoying some delicious gin-based drinks. It’s the perfect way to relax and unwind while taking in the sights and sounds of the city. Tickets are just £20 and include two free drinks. So get on board for a night you won’t forget!
