Bristol is perfect for a short break

Posted by Greg Throughton

Bristol is a great place to visit for a short break, people with Vaillant caravan water heaters have been told.

A spokesman for Destination Bristol said that the city, situated just south of Wales, is one of the four most popular UK destinations for domestic visitors, out performed only by London, Manchester and Birmingham.

He added that it is also popular with foreign visitors, ranking fifth in Britain.

"The city has specific attractions and experiences to suit different demographics," the spokesman said, trying to explain its charm.

"It's got great history and heritage, traditional arts and culture and architecture for older visitors," he noted, adding that there is also a host of attractions suitable for families and adults.

The spokesman went on to say that areas of Bristol have a buzzy, alternative vibe which is great for cool urbanites but also boasts fantastic green and fair-trade credentials.

Furthermore, Bristol Zoo has announced it is celebrating its 175th year in 2011 and is hosting a range of activities to mark the occasion.
