Bristol is without doubt one of the most attractive English cities. Here, there is an admirable fusion between past and present, history and progress, tradition and modernity.
Once the second largest city in England, thanks to its trading port, it has since become a favourite tourist destination for foreigners and the English alike. Always buzzing with excitement, dynamic Bristol creates, renews and navigates its way ahead of the rest in the domains of business, state-of-the-art technology and culture. More than 160 companies have located their head offices here, and numerous emerging businesses are making the city their second economic centre after London. Aesthetically, Bristol successfully combines the architectural styles of over 800 years of history with a dynamic modernism, of which the port has become the main symbol of its success. All that remains is to stroll about the town, listening to Massive Attack or Portishead, famous artists of “Bristol sound”, to go into one of the numerous restaurants, bars, theatres or concert halls and to penetrate the underground of this visionary and festive city.
