Universities and Adult education groups

For more mature students we offer commentaries on a range of subjects - you're welcome to provide your own commentator if you have a lecturer with expertise in a particular subject...


The Bristol we know takes its name from the Anglo-Saxon 'Brigstowe' (place of the bridge) - book a Harbour Tour and see this first crossing place of the harbour, marvel at Brunel's S.S. Great Britain, listen to stories of its rich and chequered past and hear facts about famous Bristolians.

Look around at the fantastic architecture, be stupefied by feats of engineering and the countless hours of hard labour that went into creating this city.

The modern Bristol is a vibrant and colourful place full of houseboats and barges, yachts and Cornish gigs, Bristol channel pilot cutters and sailing ships like the replica of The Matthew - John Cabot's caravel of discovery.

It's not uncommon to see kingfishers & peregrine falcons and urban legend has it that a crocodile lurks in the harbour (we'll let you decide what to believe...)
