The heart of the city is located to the north of the River Avon and is fairly easy to walk around, although some areas do feature steep hills. Central Bristol is based around the Corn Exchange and the markets, particularly along Broad Street. Here you will find a number of historic landmarks and buildings, with the main shopping area around Broadmead being located nearby.
The suburb of Clifton is sited to the north-west of Bristol city centre and is most famous for its suspension bridge, which dates back to the mid-19th century. Bristol Zoo is also located in the Clifton area and has become a major family attraction, although parking can be difficult on the busiest days.
The harbourside area of Bristol is particularly lively and close to the centre and the city docks. With many waterfront restaurants, bars and clubs, other nearby attractions include the Hippodrome Theatre, the At Bristol complex and the Watershed.
