Motorhome Rental Bristol

Bristol is the largest city in southwest England and takes its name from the Old English for ‘place of the bridge’. It is home to the Clifton Suspension Bridge, which stretches across Avon Gorge and many other engineering and natural marvels. It is also an excellent base from which to explore the wider region, not least the UNESCO-listed city of Bath.

One of England’s most eclectic cities, Bristol is a thriving hub for the arts. Not only is it the home city of street artist Banksy, with many of his works to be found around the city, but a multitude of venues attracting a steady stream of big names. The youthful population ensure there is a lively nightlife, while visitors to Bristol are never far from the quintessential English countryside.

The M4 connects Bristol with the bright lights of London in as little as 2.5 hours. The M5 runs roughly north-south, connecting the international airport at Birmingham in the Midlands with the attractive city of Exeter on the Devon coast.

Bristol’s airport receives regular flights from the likes of Aer Lingus, KLM and budget airlines easyJet and Ryanair. Bristol can be reached from more than 125 different European cities, with flights from Bristol to Amsterdam lasting just one hour 15 minutes.

Bristol Temple Meads is the city’s main rail terminal. Up to three trains per hour connect Bristol with London in around 1.5 hours, while other domestic destinations including Manchester, Birmingham, Cardiff and even Edinburgh.
