Discover Bristol and surroundings by car

When you rent a car from Bristol Airport, you’ll have the freedom and flexibility to discover all the best attractions at your own pace. There’s so much to see and do in this part of the world with a trip over the Clifton Suspension Bridge sure to get your four-wheel adventure off to a great start.

What’s more, if you’ve come to Bristol to experience the bustling harbour, you won’t be disappointed. Not only will you be able to take a look around the SS Great Britain, but you can also enjoy a harbour tour on the Matthew – a faithful reconstruction of the boat used by John Cabot when he discovered Newfoundland in 1497. The boat is typically docked near to Bristol’s M Shed museum, another popular attraction from which you can also enjoy a steam train ride on Bristol Harbour Railway.

With a hire car from Europcar Bristol Airport, you’re also well-placed for an adventure further afield with Bath being a stone’s throw away and the seaside resort of Weston-super-Mare being a top spot for families wishing to catch a glimpse of the British coastline. Feeling adventurous? Then you could also nip across the River Severn into Wales, or make your way towards Oxford. London’s within easy reach too, it all depends on whether you’re planning to tour the UK extensively or stay closer to Bristol.

Driving in Bristol

In the UK, people drive on the left and overtake on the right. Roads are well-maintained and well-signposted as a rule, but beware of narrow, windy roads should you venture into the country.

Speed limits should be obeyed at all time and it’s illegal to drink and drive or use your phone when behind the wheel. Police are very strict in the UK and there will likely be a consequence if you get pulled over for breaking the law.

As you’d expect from most UK cities, Bristol roads can become congested with road networks around the city being busiest during the morning (7-9am) and evening (5-7am) commute.

There is a toll charge for crossing the Clifton Suspension Bridge.

If you want to park up and explore Bristol by foot, on-street parking is available. This is usually limited to two hours, however, so you may prefer to leave your vehicle at an off-street lot with locations including Queen Square, Portwall Lane and Radcliffe Parade.

Bustling Bristol

As a lively, modern and cosmopolitan city with a rich maritime history, Bristol strikes the perfect balance between old and new. Architecturally-brilliant buildings and timeless attractions such as SS Great Britain sit alongside contemporary bars and cafes, so why not hire a car from Europcar Bristol Airport and explore the best of bustling Bristol?

Travel far and wide

With a rental car, you could be visiting Bristol Zoo one minute and making your way to the seaside resort of Weston-super-Mare the next. The beautiful town of Bath is just a stone’s throw away and with London in easy reach you may even feel inclined to venture to the capital. With Europcar, you can drop your vehicle at any station across the UK, so don’t worry about travelling far and wide.
