Holiday Travel Guide

University of Bristol
Wander between campus buildings and architectural landmarks, visit museums, catch a theatre show and admire outdoor art displays at this city centre university. 

Experience student life in and around an acclaimed institute of higher education at the University of Bristol. It is recognizable for its landmark buildings, museums and its proximity to a busy nightlife district. The origins of the University of Bristol date back to 1595 and it received a royal charter in 1909. It counts Nobel Laureates, such as Sir Winston Churchill, among its former chancellors, professors and students. 

Located at the northern edge of the city centre, the university’s main campus is an integral part of Bristol’s vibrant city life. Observe as students move between the lecture halls, many of which occupy fine examples of Gothic and Georgian-era houses. When not studying, many choose to socialize in the bars that line the Queens Road. 

Stroll through the pretty Royal Fort Gardens, the site of Royal Fort House, completed in 1762 for wealthy merchant Thomas Tyndall. The building now houses the university’s Faculty of Science. A permanent exhibition called Hollow decorates the gardens and features 10,000 tree species collected from around the world.

On a guided building and tower tour, discover the splendour of Wills Memorial Building, which houses the university’s law and earth sciences departments. The adjacent Bristol Museum and Art Gallery boasts a fascinating collection of art, dinosaur fossils, Egyptian mummies and natural history artifacts. 

Attend performances by student theatrical groups at the Winston Theatre. Browse an extensive archive of costumes, photographs, posters and videos related to British theatre at the University of Bristol Theatre Collection. The Greek Revival-style Victoria Rooms is another important building and the location of the university music department. 

The university campus is 1.5 miles (2.4 kilometres) to the northwest of Bristol Temple Meads railway station and a 15-minute walk from the city’s bus terminal. Drivers will find several metered car parks around the city centre. 

Visit the University of Bristol on any day throughout the year. Guided tours are available for prospective students. You can download a printable self-guided walking tour of the main sights via the university’s official website.
