What makes this tour special

Discover the beguiling medieval charm of the Old City where cobblestone streets, Gothic spires and Georgian terraces reveal a rich history of merchant trade. On your private historical tour, you will:

Strolling the Old City evokes an era when ships would arrive from all over the world at Bristol port, laden with wealthy cargo.  From here wander to a masterpiece of Gothic architecture, the St Mary Redcliffe - which  guided ships out of the Port of Bristol for eight centuries  with prayers for safe passage.

Affluent times built elegant Corn Street and the lofty banking halls that counted the profits of global trade - now a lively pedestrianized bar and restaurant zone. The Corn Exchange building retains its mercantile buzz as a hub for local artisans. In Nelson Street, the creative vibe is entirely different as the home of Bristol’s bold, colorful street art. Banksy is Bristol born yet the transformation of the drab 1960s grey frontings to the city’s beating artsy heart owes much to a dozen or so cutting edge graffiti maestros.

What you'll see

Bristol's Old City
Bristol's 'Old City' is its historic district with several Grade I & II buildings, trendy shopping, the bustling craft beer scene, and theatres.
Bristol Harbour
Built with lock gates in the 18th century to address the tides of the River Avon, the waterfront has become a focal point for travellers and locals.
King Street
The newer part of King Street was developed in the 1660's, so walking down the street now is truly a time capsule of times past.
Corn Street
Corn Street used to serve as the administrative and commercial street for the city; today it is a street lined with Grade I and Grade II buildings.
The Exchange, Bristol
Designed by John Wood the Elder, whose other architectural masterpieces remain today in Bath and Liverpool, the Grade I listed building is now predominantly an administrative building.
Nelson Street, Bristol
When looking for the street art for which the city has become known, begin on Nelson Street and uncover the newest works on display.
St Mary Redcliffe Church
Known for its Gothic architecture, part of the remaining church dates back to the 12th century, though the first church in the location dates back to the Saxon times.
