Fly from Nice to Bristol

and discover England’s cool side

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
Bristol ?

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.

    Ever heard the saying “the grass is always greener on the other side”? Well Bristol is the perfect illustration! As far and nature and the environment go, not much else compares. One number is enough to convince you: 450. That's the number of parks and gardens you’ll find within the city! Enough to make your city break weekend feel like a nature outing.
    But your trip here won’t be all romantic walks through the legendary work of landscapers from across the Channel. Because in addition to horticultural expertise, Bristol shines with the diversity and vitality of its culture. Culture of a classic nature can be seen in Bristol's renowned museums, guardians of a long history. But for culture that’s more “pop”, you've just to look around you at the bright colours of Bristol's street art or listen for the electro beat of live music pouring out of night clubs. You’ll learn the secret locals have known forever: their city is the coolest in the country!

  • The top 10 things to do in Bristol

    • Go walking in Harbourside, Bristol’s ancient river port which has been completely renovated and now houses shops, bars, restaurants, and art galleries and museums such as the We The Curious (a pleasant surprise of a science museum) and the M-Shed (for local history).
    • Go aboard the first modern transatlantic ocean liner, the SS Great Britain. Impeccably restored, from its steel hull to its luxurious cabins, this one-time giant is now a boat-museum that’s as unique and spectacular as it is animated and entertaining.
    • Stroll through the narrow streets of Bristol Old City too see monuments (starting with the extraordinary cathedral!) and several timer-framed houses that escaped the ravages of both time and Nazi bombs.
    • Get some fresh air and sun on the immaculate lawns of Castle Park on the banks of the Avon, or on Brandon Hill between the Clifton and Hotwells districts. Climb up to the top of Cabot Tower to enjoy a great view of the city from 32 metres up.
    • “Open sesame!” Enter Aladdin's cave: The Bristol Museum and Art Gallery is downright fascinating, with a nod to the beginnings of aviation hung from the ceiling and collections of Egyptian antiquities, dinosaur fossils, and precious gems.
    • And a river runs through it... Cross Clifftord Bridge and you’ll be crossing 400 metres of the Avon from 74 metres up. Inaugurated in 1864, it's one of the oldest suspension bridges still in use in the world. A classic part of any Bristol city tour.
    • Freshen up your wardrobe at Cabot Circus, Bristol's ultra-modern shopping centre. More than 140 shops vie for your pounds sterling, including Harvey Nichols, a tenant of British luxury.
    • Go on a Banksy tour. The king of street art used Bristol as his canvas - to the point where some think he’s from there. A half hour's walk between Wapping Wharf and Stokes Croft will let you judge his talent for yourself.
    • Forget beer, try cider! This area is well-known for it. Just be careful not to drink too much! It’s often over 8%.
    • Go on a “barathon” around Millenium Square, the chic central square of Bristol. To get the most out of your bar hopping, be sure to only mix two things: live music and good humour!
