Bristol is a very accessible city, whether you’re travelling by car, train, bus or plane.
By plane: Bristol has its very own airport served by a number of airlines, and the A1 bus takes a mere 30mins to get into the city centre.
By car: Whichever direction you are coming from, travelling by car to Bristol is easy. You’ll most likely be arriving via the M32 or the A38 – both take you pretty much straight into the city centre. Parking can be a little tricky and the traffic system is not always logical, but with a bit of persistence you’ll get by just fine… Some areas have residents’ parking scheme, so check with your accommodation first.
By bus/train: Bristol is well-served by buses and trains – check on Trainline.
