City Centre Leisure Walk (Self Guided), Bristol

The commercial and cultural heart of Bristol is an exciting, lively and stimulating place to spend some quality downtime. For shopping, there are the furniture and home ware stores of The Triangle as well as the fashionable clothes boutiques, music and record stores of Park Street. This main city artery which dates back to the late 18th century won the Great British High Street of the Year Award 2014. At almost every turn in the city center, you will find a smart bar, a delightful café or a welcoming restaurant.

Prepare to be amazed when you walk down Nelson Street, home to one of the world's largest outdoor exhibitions. It is called See No Evil and is a wonderfully vibrant collection of works by a number of skilled and talented graffiti artists. This major tourist attraction features multistory buildings covered in imaginative and highly creative art. The project was dreamed up by street artist Inkie and some of the city's music promoters who wanted to bring about a colorful transformation of some drab and nondescript buildings. Over the course of a week, artists from all over the world set to work and created their colorful masterpieces which are now a permanent part of the Bristol cityscape.
