Bristol is a city in Southeast England located at the mouth of River Avon on the Bristol Bay. The settlement was first mentioned in 10th century. Bristol developed as a popular city in 16-17th century and it was one of the most important English ports until the end of 18th century.
Many historical architectural sites in Bristol are preserved to this day to show the different eras the city has gone through. One of them is the upscale residential area Clifton Village where fine Georgian architecture buildings can be seen. The old central area of Bristol was destroyed after bombing during Second World War. It was then turned into a park keeping the ruins of two churches and the Bristol Castle. The rest of the buildings damaged by the attack were rebuilt and designed in a modern way.
The rest of the city landmarks are the Georgian House built at the end of 18th century, the Seven Stars Public House and the College Green area. College Green is an open public space with many interesting buildings around it including a beautiful 12th century cathedral. The most popular religious site in the city is The New Room being the oldest Methodist church in the world. It was built by the founder of the Methodist movement John Wesley in 1739.
Bristol Museum & Art Gallery is another place worth visiting for its interesting exhibits and impressive art collection.
