Bristol, United Kingdom Cruise Port

Both a city and a county in South West England, Bristol has the 6th largest population in England, and is the UK’s 8th most populated urban area. To keep traffic flow to a minimum, the port (Avonmouth) is located several miles from the central city with various modes of transportation on hand to help visitors get around. While a large portion of the city looks like a bustling, modern metropolis, some of the preserved buildings date back as far as the 11th century continuing unto the early 19th century. Winding around the city’s center is the Floating Harbor which, to the naked eye, may appear to be a river but is actually a dock; this was the primary center for trade in the 19th century. However, now that the Avonmouth industrial dock maintains viable water levels and prevents flooding with lock gates and impounding pumps, the Floating Harbor is home to crafts, leisure, and fancy waterside apartments.

  • Tour Bristol University to witness the Wills Memorial Building. Home of the 7th highest bell in the UK, this magnificent structure is over 220 feet high and offers panoramic views.
