Bristol – Building aeroplanes since 1910

The history of Bristol goes back to the Palaeolithic era, with discoveries made that are around 60,000 years old. There are also Iron Age hill forts located in the region, along with the remains of Roman settlements.

The City itself began to develop from around the beginning of the 11th century and obtained one of the strongest castles in southern England under Norman occupation.

The port of Bristol grew in importance from the 11th century and at one point dealt with most of the trade from Ireland, although Liverpool, Birmingham and Manchester became the major sea ports and trading areas later. The Black Death in 1348 is believed to have killed an estimated half of the population in Bristol and this affected the City for another 200 years.

Bristol’s economy is reliant on the aerospace industry and has been making aeroplanes since 1910. In 1915 thousands of “Bristol Fighters” were built for World War I and much later Filton (near Bristol) became the British ‘half’ of the Concorde. The first British Concorde took off from Filton (1969) and made its final landing there as well (2003).

Reasons to visit Bristol

There is no shortage of things to see and do in Bristol and some of the main attractions are the Avon Gorge, Blaise Castle (mansion house), Bristol Cathedral (founded 1140), Bristol Zoo, Clifton Suspension Bridge, Bristol Harbour, Bristol Harbour Railway, Bristol Hippodrome Theatre and the SS Great Britain (a 19th-century passenger steamship).

Entertainment and Dining in Bristol

There is a wide selection of entertainment in Bristol, including a number of theatres, cinemas, nightclubs, casinos and pubs. Eating places are plentiful and varied such as The Muset by Ronnie, Prego (Italian) and Entelia (Greek).
