Bristol is a vibrant, cultural city, widely considered to be among the more artistic and forward thinking in the country. However, get beyond urban areas and it’s clear that the city is also surrounded by exhilarating countryside and coastal attractions, meaning it is the perfect base from which to explore the South-West.
Take a trip across the famous Clifton Suspension Bridge and head to rural Somerset’s Ashton Court Estate. The country park and mansion boast 850 acres of woodland and grassland where you can cycle, have a lazy picnic or take in annual events like the Bristol International Balloon Festival. Head further afield and the north Somerset coastline is the perfect place to relax and explore miles of sandy beaches and seaside towns and villages.
Other beautiful natural areas within easy reach, if you have access to a hire car, include the Mendip Hills to the south, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and the Cotswolds to the east and north-east. Famous towns such as Bath and Glastonbury are also just a short drive away.
Bristol Van Hire
Europcar offers a range of affordable and practical vans for hire as well. One-way van hire negates the stress of having to return the vehicle to the same place from which you hired it and we also offer hourly van rental which can save you money if you’ve only got a quick errand to run and don’t need to hire a vehicle for very long.
