111 Things In Bristol That You Shouldn't miss
111 Places In Bristol That You Shouldn’t Miss A Bristol guidebook unlike any other Bristol guidebook
Sadly we have run out and cannot restock til after Christmas
Two former Bristol Post colleagues have joined forces for a new book that features interesting and unusual places not found in traditional travel guides.
Author Martin Booth and photographer Barbara Evripidou have pulled back the curtain to reveal dozens of fascinating and eccentric destinations in 111 Places in Bristol That You Shouldn’t Miss.
We’re thrilled that Room 212 has been included! The other images selected here are of places nearest to Gloucester Road apart from the Dirac monument which is based in the city centre, but Paul Dirac lived just round the corner from Room 212. The rock slide is over in Clifton but is the BEST place to take children visiting Bristol!
111 Places in Bristol That You Shouldn’t Miss heads off the beaten track to a bridge to nowhere, leads your eyes downwards to a pavement plaque no bigger than a pencil remembering times past, draws your eyes upwards to a pair of mythical unicorns, and takes you away from the crowds to find a giant wicker nose, a pub populated by cats and a shell-lined secret grotto.
Explore by rail on a small suburban branch line or even from a ferry designed by the inventor of the bagless vacuum cleaner, James Dyson while he was still a student – a modern-day Brunel.
Martin, the Editor of Bristol24/7, has teamed up with his former newspaper colleague Barbara, who lives in Bishopston, to work together on the book, part of a global series of city guides that aim to showcase places not usually featured in guidebooks.
“No matter whether you have lived here all of your life, are a frequent visitor or a first-time visitor, these are 111 things you might not have realised even existed,” said Barbara.
“This is an exploration of unknown Bristol from the Ice Age to the present day.”
Each of the 111 chapters focuses on a specific place in Bristol. These include the Campus skatepark within Bishopsworth’s former swimming pool, the statue of poet Alfred Fagon in St Paul’s, the Black Castle pub in the middle of the Sainsbury’s car park in Brislington and a Victorian toilet on Horfield Common.
111 Places in Bristol That You Shouldn’t Miss is part of an international series of books from Emons, a publisher based in Cologne in Germany.
The fully illustrated series presents cities, regions and even whole countries from a wonderfully different and personal perspective, with both Barbara and Martin using their insider knowledge of Bristol to tell some memorable stories within their book.
Barbara added: “I hope that this book will allow you to find the hidden places, stories, shops and neighborhoods that unlock Bristol’s true character, history and flavour.”
