It’s a nice place to walk along the docks and see all the different types of boat. There are lots of restaurants and bars along the walk. You can use a taxi Boat to cross the river if you get a little tired.

A great place for a nice walk along the water. Sometimes it's a bit industrial away from the water but there's plenty of bars and cafes along the way and a great place to see some of the local boats.

I'd guess anyone taking a wander around Bristol is inevitably drawn to the riverside and then will stumble across the docks. Plenty to see alongside the river and on it in terms of eateries, shops and bars. Some impressive buildings too in the old churches...More
