From Brunel to Banksy, the creative south-west city has much to marvel at

1 BRISTOL TEMPLE MEADS STATION

Bristol’s main rail hub is located in Redcliffe, about 15 minutes’ walk from the city centre, and was designed 180 years ago by Isambard Kingdom Brunel, making it the oldest station in the city. As you exit the main entrance, turn on to the slip road on the left (Lower Approach Road). You’ll spy a series of street artworks that juxtapose strikingly with the station’s Gothic façade in the background. Highlights include a colourful collaboration between Copyright and Paul Monsters of a woman with butterfly wings, and posters paying tribute to the NHS. These give you a first taste of the city’s rich graffiti scene, which exploded in the 1980s and counts Banksy as a participant. The Visit Bristol website lists some of the elusive artist’s works if you are interested in seeking them out: bit.ly/bristolbanksytour
