Event description

Description

There’s the beautiful scenery of a city surrounded by green hills, the historic engineering feats of Isambard Kingdom Brunel, the counter culture that produced the street artist Banksy, and modern innovation like the great Concorde.

You are invited to join us on this trip to Bristol and home of Concorde. The arrangements are as follows. You will depart from London Stratford and are spared the hiking of Bristol’s many hills on a coach tour of the city’s sights. This visits Brunel’s suspension bridge, in its stunning spot hanging high over the Avon Gorge, before heading down to his other great Bristol landmark, the steamship SS Great Britain, which was the first iron steamer to cross the Atlantic.

You’ll also see how the city makes both modern and ancient history, taking in some of world-renowned Bristol graffiti artist Banksy’s most memorable works before stopping for lunch on the broad lawn outside the imposing facade of Bristol cathedral at the heart of the city. It’s a perfect picnic spot if the weather is good and for rainy days there are waterfront restaurants and markets just a couple of minutes away.

After lunch you head north out of town towards the home of the one of the most impressive aviation experiments of the last few decades, Concorde. Being the home of British Aerospace, of which a Bristol company was a founding component, the city was the natural choice for developing the supersonic craft. Aerospace Bristol now tells not only the story of that historic partnership, but also of the great contribution that the city has made to civiliation and military aviation as well as the space race.

From there, you return to London Stratford full of the revelations and joys of a day spent in this varied and exciting city.
