It borders the counties of Somerset and Gloucestershire, with the historic cities of Bath (Bath, Somerset) and Gloucester to the south east and the north respectively. The city is built around the River Avon (River Avon, Bristol) and also has a short coastline on the Severn Estuary which flows into the Bristol Channel.

Bristol's prosperity has been linked with the sea since its earliest days. The Port of Bristol was originally in the city centre before being moved to the Severn Estuary at Avonmouth; Royal Portbury Dock is on the western edge of the city. In recent years, the economy has depended on the creative media, electronics and aerospace industries and the city centre docks have been regenerated as a centre of heritage and culture.
