Bristol Transport


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, and Uber and similar mobile app-based taxi services are also available.

There are plenty of car rental agencies as well, though the city centre can get congested and hiring a car is probably only worthwhile if travelling beyond the city. Bristol is a popular place for cyclists and, despite plenty of hills, the city has excellent urban bike routes. The Bristol Ferry Boat is a fun and relaxing way to explore the city; it offers leisure and commuter services in the harbour.
