This is a lovely historic part of Bristol, steeped in history. There is a really pretty physic garden for a few benches. There is also some nice planting by the new bridge. However, there is some litter problem, some undesirable characters and no benches anywhere....More

Thought we would go and see the new castle bridge and enjoy a walk. All I can say is - if this is litter control before the cuts start to bite - it will become a landfill site soon

Look out for events - something often going on there. I saw circus skills workshop and 'The Ambling Band' on the same afternoon. Easy access to city centre. Nice for picnics. Views of the river.

Many blitzed cities retain one blitzed,unreconstructed building as a memorial to those who lost their lives in the blitz.The ruins of St Peter's church remain as a fitting tribute too those who were killed in this city.A fitting tribute.

It's a nice idea, putting a small park in the centre of a city, but it doesn't quite work. It is too small to be much of a park, just a quiet and pretty throughfare really. Very nice views over the water though whilst walking...More

The castle is a ruin. But the park is very nice even though it's not that big. When the sun is out, it's really enjoyable.

A wonderful hilly and green park in the city center. Perfect for strolling, picnics and people watching. Well kept, gardens and a ruined church that makes for intetesting photographic opportunities. We spent a few hours resting from our morning walkaround and enjoyed the sunshine along...More
