Very helpful and friendly staff in this well stocked Tourist Information Centre in Bristol. Free street maps which I found to be very useful, also many leaflets and booklets which inspired several visits to points of interest. Situated in E Shed within the harbour area.

I asked for pubs on outskirts of Bristol, showing 6 nations on big screen. Very quick response and very helpful information. If you're visiting Bristol or surrounding areas contact The Bristol Tourist Information Centre. Wonderful service.

We called at the TIC to collect some information about the City- the staff on duty were not very welcoming or helpful- contrary to our experience elsewhere in UK. Definitely could do better.
