Discover the history and heritage of Bristol
Bristol has had a fascinating history, and its past makes for an engaging school trip.
Lying on the River Avon, Bristol was, for many centuries, one of England’s major ports, only being surpassed with the advent of the industrial revolution. All this history means that there is plenty to discover on a school trip.
This history is visible all over the city, and its many museums, such as M Shed, the Bristol Industrial Museum, and, of course, Brunel’s SS Great Britain, which is moored at the heart of the old port.
Bristol is, alledgedly, home of Banksy, and many of his thought-provoking works of art are dotted around the city.
” Professional and courteous throughout the whole procedure. I found STC to be organised and thorough in their arrangements.”
