Driving in Bristol

Bristol is a beautiful city, but the roads can get busy! Avoid driving in the city centre during rush hour (07:30 to 9:00 and 16:30 to 18:30), and make sure to keep an eye out for cyclists, as cycling is very popular in the city. 

Small residential roads can get narrow, so be aware if you are looking for van hire, and always tuck in your wing mirrors if parking on a small street.

Bristol is also a hilly city and some roads can get steep! Feel free to ask for an automatic car rental if you aren’t used to driving on hills in urban areas.

Things to do in Bristol

Bristol is a wonderful city with so many things to see and do! Take in the view of the city and its famous suspension bridge from the observatory in Clifton, or wander around the harbourside, taking in the SAS Great Britain and the multiple museums on offer. 

Bristol is famous for its street art, so take a walk down North Street and take in the huge murals along the way – pop into the independent coffee shops for a hot drink or stop off at some of the restaurants to make the most of Bristol’s buzzing food scene. 

If you want a day out of the city without going too far, hire a car and head to Leigh Woods and Ashton Court, or take your car rental a little further afield to explore the stunning Cheddar Gorge. 

Our friendly local staff have a great knowledge of the city and its surrounding areas, so if you need any help or ideas of where to go, just ask!
