Not only for its picturesque harbour, its Georgian streets, and its beautiful setting on the River Avon, but also for its lively music scene, world-class restaurants and beautiful countryside surroundings.

Once here, visitors can expect a city that revels in its pre-Victorian heritage with plenty of Georgian squares, crescents and churches to feast your eyes on. And when you’re not gawping at the magnificent buildings, you’ll no doubt be down at the trendy harbour checking out the bars, restaurants cafes and museums.
