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.
