Informações práticas sobre Bristol

Passear pela cidade

Bristol is an easy city to negotiate on foot, with plenty of attractions close to one another. There are, however, taxis, trains and an extensive bus network available. While the bus service has been criticized in the past, plans for a five-year project to transform it, reducing congestion and improving safety, are in place. There are plenty of car rental agencies available, though the city centre can get congested. Bristol is a popular place for cyclists and despite plenty of hills, the city has an excellent urban bike route. The Bristol Ferry Boat is a fun and leisurely way to explore the city; it offers leisure and commuter services in the harbour.

Clima

+

Bristol's climate is as unpredictable as the rest of the United Kingdom. Situated in the southwest of the country and sheltered largely by Exmoor and the Mendip Hills, Bristol is in fact one of the UK's warmest cities. Summers are usually sunny and warm, while winters are cold and wet. Summer days, however, can start out overcast and damp, clearing later, and winter days can be crisp and cold. Rain is possible in any season, but late-autumn and winter are the wettest seasons. The best time to travel to Bristol is during the summer (June to September) when it is usually warm and sunny. Winters are wet, but comparatively mild temperature-wise. A good time to plan a short break in Bristol is at the end of July when the popular Harbour Festival takes place, one of the largest free events in England with music on five stages, street theatre, markets and a fireworks display.
