Itinerary

Itinerary

Avon Valley Railway © Visit BristolDay 1 Morning departure for the journey to the Bristol area and the hotel for a four night stay.

Day 2 This morning you will enjoy a guided tour of Aerospace Bristol, which offers a unique glimpse inside the aerospace industry from the point of view of the people who designed and built our nation’s aircraft over the past 100 years. You will get the chance to step aboard its star attraction, the iconic Concorde Alpha Foxtrot, the last of the supersonic passengers’ jets to be built and the last to fly. In the afternoon you will take a boat trip with commentary detailing the fascinating history of Bristol Docks and surrounding area whilst enjoying a cream tea.

Day 3 Today travel to the Clifton Observatory, where you can explore the museum and discover its hidden secrets and vast heritage. The Observatory has the best view of the nearby Clifton Suspension Bridge, spanning the Avon Gorge, originally designed by Brunel and completed after his death. This afternoon you will head to Bitton Station where you will be able to sit back, relax and enjoy a return journey on the Avon Valley Railway..

Day 4 The coach will transfer you into Bristol to enjoy a day at leisure and you will be able to explore the many attractions Bristol has to offer. Stroll along the waterfront and perhaps visit SS Great Britain or Arnolfini, one of Europe’s leading centres for the contemporary arts, visit one of the many museums and galleries, or just shop.
