Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    Cathedral like, it is classed as one of the last great Gothic buildings to be completed in England. It is stunning particularly within but also on approach.

    Finally opened with much ceremony in 1925, after delays due to WW I, it is now a landmark building of the University.

    We ended up stumbling across these rooms by accident, the staff were very friendly and they do have a cafe there where you can get snacks and a coffees, thought it was a bit rich charging £5 for the booklet

    Interesting and informative. Gary our guide was full of one liners which made the tour great fun. It was wonderful to stand next to Great George when it rang. And so great to see as far as bridges over the River Severn.

    Three people and a pooch visited here, one had to wait outside with the pooch. I couldn't see any sense in this at all and although I browsed and saw a couple of things I would have bought I kept my wallet in my pocket out of defiance!

    The place itself was wonderful, great architecture and plaster reliefs.

    Clifton Village is worth a brief visit after experiencing Bristol's city centre. A very brief trip on a number 8 bus and we were walking the streets of this charming little village mainly comprising of pubs, restaurants, cafes, green grocers, boutique style shops and the Clifton Arcade, specialising in antique shops. Worth a brief stopover.

    The building houses the University of Bristol music department, with a 530 seat auditorium and many practice rooms. It is a very pleasant building, although in need of refurbishment. Since it is an educational facility, it holds a varied number of musical events yearly, with dates and information made available at the University's Music Department's site.

    I came here expecting to see an exhibition of Design West work. But it seems the exhibition space has been repurposed as a bar - very nicely fitted out with some fine, possibly original, timber beams. I had an excellent chorizo and tomato sourdough sandwich and a glass of white wine. And Betty Davis playing on the sound system. Ears, eyes, nose, palate all very satisfied.

    We walked through the Aston Gate Gatehouse, which leads to a long drive up to the the Ashton Park Golf Course, plus the surrounding grounds.
    It is a really impressive & imposing building & is well worth visiting just to stand & enjoy the architecture
    Carefully though, traffic coming through from both directions, & pedestrians are ignored.
