UK Trip: Bristol

bristol uk

While visiting Bath in the UK, I made a quick visit to Bristol. My visit was short, 3-4 hours, but it gave me a glimpse of the city and culture. Unlike Bath, Bristol felt like a real city, full of people, a bit more diverse than Bath, and rumbling with industrial noises. It was less relaxing than Bath, but also had the vibe that most city people would crave for. I basically hung out in the central part of Bristol, with a brief visit to the shopping district known as Broadmead. The park was really comfortable and it was a sunny day to chill out near the waterfront, though little kids kept falling down on the slippery hard marble waterfall like staircase pictured above. Much like Bath however, things closed early besides the pubs. More pictures after the jump…

The train station had an unbelievable industrial space.

One of the many water parks in the city.

One of many nice cars parked throughout Bath and Bristol. From nice Porsche cars, to Ferraris, to TVR’s, to cars I have’nt even heard of. They really like their nice cars here despite the ridiculous gas prices.

A breeze through the industrial park.
If I had a choice to live in Bristol vs Bath, it would be Bristol, though if I had a family I’d live in Bath. The two are not too far apart, 15 mins train ride, but the price to commute is a bit expensive.(about $10)
