Time to explore

As with all our UK breaks, after a guided city tour of Bristol you'll have time to explore the city and its surroundings independently. Take a bus to Clifton Suspension Bridge and soak up the beautiful views over the river Avon and the city centre below. Designed in the early 19th century for light horse-drawn traffic, it still meets the demands of the 21st century, with 11-12,000 vehicles crossing it every day! In the city itself, you can take a street art tour, hit the shops or hop between museums and galleries which recount Bristol's vibrant past.

Useful Information

Location and transport

Parking is offered on a first-come-first-served basis (£15 for 24 hours). You must register at reception on arrival to avoid fines. There are also two NCP open air car parks nearby.

Included programme
A guided walking tour of Bristol on Saturday is included.

Gratuities
There is often confusion on the question of gratuities, since it frequently depends on the type of holiday, location and, of course, your attitude towards tipping, as to what is normally expected. In order to give you a rough idea, we have given appropriate guidance below. The Tour Leader will be on hand to offer advice or suggestions if required but gratuities are offered entirely at the sole discretion of the individual. We suggest a group collection at the beginning of your holiday to cover drivers, guides and hotel staff (including restaurant, kitchen and reception staff) of approximately £5. Your Tour Leader will collect this on your behalf and distribute it accordingly, thus relieving you of the burden of who, when and how much to tip. The tipping of bar staff and housekeeping will be left to your individual discretion (the rounding up of the drinks bill and a small amount left in your room on departure should cover this and would be much appreciated). As is customary, ‘the hat’ will be passed around for the driver and guide on all optional excursions. For any meals that are not included in your itinerary, restaurants expect a 10% gratuity (do check that service has not already been added to your bill). For taxis 10% off the metered fare.

Dress code
The dress code for during the day is casual. In the evenings the dress code is smart casual. Comfortable shoes for walking and sightseeing are recommended.
