“Thoroughly enjoyable”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 November 2011

"Pirate walks" is one of the few guided walks available in the winter which is a pity as there must be lots of other areas/things to see in Bristol. A 90 minute stroll covering only about half a mile around the docks but worth every penny and what an informative guide we had. It wasn't Pete the Pirate leading it but his deputy was excellent with a potted history of the slave trade, pirates, press ganga and even a bit of Banksy.

£7.50 is perhaps a bit expensive compared with London Walks but you do get an orange or blackcurrent drink included when you stop at a pub with a hidden secret!! It's a level walk but mostly on cobbles so wear comfortable shoes.

“Interesting, short enough, informative, good starting point”

Nice activity to do with younger children. The guide encourages questions and participation. Interesting history lesson about white slavery and how some Bristol gentry made their fortunes
