Working in Bristol –
For the size of Bristol, its job market is surprisingly strong. It has low unemployment rates and higher than average salaries. This, combined with reasonable rent and housing prices, makes Bristol the place to be!
After a long day in work, nothing beats a walk along the harbourside and getting a pint of scrumpy in one of their many pubs. Or if you visit the harbourside on the weekend you will be greeted with festival-like markets, which is a community of foodies, makers, musicians and artists.
If you are looking for a more family friendly day out, then visit the zoo. Bristol is home to the fifth oldest Zoo in the world, it’s been a large tourist attraction since 1836. There’s also Bristol aquarium, given you the chance to be underwater and close to the reef without getting wet!
There are many other things to do, such as visit the museum and art gallery, or a boat tour around the harbour. You want something more extravagant? Then go hot air ballooning!
The excitement never ends in Bristol.
