Bath’s industrial neighbour is an increasingly popular travel destination with a couple of excellent hotels, some good museums and a vibrant nightlife.
Bristol’s excellent transport connections to Bath, Cardiff and Glastonbury make it an excellent base for exploring the West Country.
Bristol is the southwest’s largest city and it is a major transport hub for the region. The city is well served by rail, bus and coach and it also has the region’s busiest (and the UK’s ninth-busiest) airport.
Bristol Temple Meads is the city’s main railway station, which is around a 15-minute walk east of the city centre and most buses and coaches (except Megabus coaches, which stop on Bond Street) stop at the Bristol Bus and Coach Station near the Bear Pit.
