Travel to Bristol and arrive in Avon
A direct flight from Nice to Bristol is an invitation to discover one of the loveliest cities in the UK. Located in the south-west of England, it was for years known for the famous port at the centre of the city. But its maritime legacy has faded and the city has changed face. Its docks and warehouses are now dedicated to culture, shopping and entertainment, contributing to the well-being of a population that often describes itself as “the happiest in Great Britain”! And not without reason, as you’ll see for yourself upon arrival of your Nice-Bristol flight.

What to do in
For many years, Bristol has counted itself among the most accessible cities in the realm of Elisabeth II. The hometown of Hitchcock's favourite Carry Grant has undertaken multiple initiatives to make the city a great place to be for locals and visitors alike. European Green Capital in 2015, the UK’s “Most Musical City” in 2010, and playground to British street artists, Bristol has survived - among other things - the decline of port activity, Nazi bombs, and the de-industrialisation of the country to become one of the top tourist destinations in England today.
