Rough Guides have just announced their top 10 cities for 2017 and Bristol, England is number 4!
1 January 2017
"Bristol stands as a shining example of one of the UK’s most forward-thinking, innovative and dynamic small cities. An economy once built upon the traffic of rum, tobacco and slaves has ebbed, though the old mansions remain perched high in the hills above the city. Today, it’s the creative and tech industries that propel this city towards the future. Retired factories house design-minded craftsmen, independent publishing houses and new wave magazines; nightlife is fuelled by a diverse but first-rate music scene; and the city is adorned with incredible street art (Bristol is the home of famous graffiti artist Banksy after all)." See the Rough guides list.
This follows a long list of publications naming Bristol best in UK.
