Things to see and do in Bristol

Blue Reef Aquarium and IMAX 3D Cinema
Blue Reef Aquarium and IMAX 3D Cinema

The spectacular new Blue Reef Aquarium in Bristol's Harbourside takes visitors on a spectacular undersea safari. The £4 million re-development of the former Wildwalk building showcases native and tropical marine and freshwater creatures from around the world in naturally themed habitats designed to inspire deeper understanding and appreciation of the natural world. Visitors embark on a fascinating journey from the British coast through warmer waters to exotic tropical seas. Highlights include a life-size recreation of a sunken ship, a Bristol harbour scene, a 'walk-in' seahorse display and a wooden footbridge, over the open-top giant coral seas display; home to tropical sharks and stringrays. The aquarium is also the only one of its kind in Europe to have its own IMAX 3D cinema. Visitors can watch a selection of stunning marine themed 3D films on an awesome four-storey tall screen as part of the admission price. From the hidden world of UK waters, the new aquarium transports visitors to the spectacular 'underwater gardens' of the Mediterranean and the stunning beauty of tropical waters - home to everything from sea horses and puffer fish to living corals and tropical sharks.

Bristol Cathedral
Bristol Cathedral

A church has probably stood on this site for over a thousand years but it came to prominence in 1140 when Robert Fitzhardinge founded the Abbey of St. Augustine. The Chapter House and Abbey Gatehouse remain clearly to be seen, the other remains are within Bristol Cathedral School. The eastern end of the Cathedral, especially in the Choir, gives Bristol Cathedral a unique place in the development of British and European Architecture. The Nave, Choir and Aisles are all the same height, making a large hall. Bristol Cathedral is the major example of a 'Hall Church' in Great Britain and one of the finest anywhere in the world.

Bristol City Museum and Art Gallery

The City Museum & Art Gallery is situated in an Edwardian Baroque building in Queen's Road, next to the Wills University building. Inside you will see collections of regional, national and international importance. It is one of the few museums to have been awarded designated status by the Government - the mark of an outstanding museum.

Bristol International Balloon Fiesta
Bristol International Balloon Fiesta

The Bristol International Balloon Fiesta is held during August in Bristol, England. Teams from the UK and other parts of the world bring their hot air balloons to the site and participate in mass ascents where as many as 100 balloons may launch at a time. The event is one of the largest in Europe and it is common to have crowds of over 100,000 on each of the four days of the festival. One popular attraction is the night glow, when balloons are inflated and glow to music after dark. These are held on the opening Thursday night at approx 9:30pm, followed by a spectacular fireworks display. There is another night glow at the same time followed by the fireworks on the Saturday night. Some people see these as the highlight of the fiesta. Another attraction is the large number of special shaped balloons which take off.

(The Independent on Beasts and Beauties). Bristol Old Vic's home is a gorgeous Georgian auditorium in the Bristol's Old City quarter. Audiences have been coming non-stop since 1766. Now its Artistic and Administrative Directors, Simon Reade and Rebecca Morland, are propelling the theatre into the 21st century.
