“Squint a little into the sun and Bristol could be San Francisco. OK, it’s not next to the ocean, but its hills, artists, musicians and vaguely anti-corporate vibe do have something in common with America’s most radical city. Bristol’s most famous contemporary artist, Banksy, sets the tone, his renegade social commentary and graffiti decorating various bits of the city centre.

Lots of City Centre BID levy payers feature in this guide to Bristol, which includes places to stay, where to eat and drink, shopping, and things to do.
