House studios in Clifton (now sadly defunct). Never has any album in British music captured the atmosphere and vibe of a specific city such as "Blue Lines" - particularly the track "Lately". This track, with vocals by Shara Nelson and a bass groove sample from "Mellow mellow right on" by Lowrell so perfectly captures the atmosphere of a summer's evening in Bristol - particularly on the Clifton Downs - that with its warm, laid back vibe is practically a signature

song for the whole city. thumbnail right A boat in the sunset at Bristol Harbourside (File:Bristol Harbourside sunset boat.jpg) Orientation Bristol is a large city with various areas in its centre; a map is helpful to get to know the layout. The free map given away at the Tourist Information Centre at the Harbourside is excellent for this. At Bristol's core is the '''Floating Harbour''' - a stretch of water that snakes along the city-centre which looks like a river in places but which is actually a dock. For centuries the Floating Harbour was where ships docked, bringing trade and prosperity to the city. It was created by diverting the River Avon in the early 19th century to the New Cut to the south, and by using various locks to create a non-tidal dock. Today, the industrial shipping has mostly gone and the Floating Harbour is a home for leisure, pleasure craft, upmarket waterfront apartments, and the occasional visiting sailing ship. It's easiest to think about city locations as where they are relative to '''The Centre''', or Central Promenade (it's called "The Centre" as it used to be the "Trams Centre", until Bristol's tram system was scrapped in the 1940s after bomb damage. Now it's more of a Bus Centre.). The Centre is a broad avenue running north-south with fountains and trees and shops, and traffic, reaching the Floating Harbour at its southern end. The Centre is a major interchange for most city bus routes - you can ask a bus driver for a ticket to "The Centre" from anywhere in the city and you'll get back there. thumbnail right The ferris wheel in Broadmead seen from The Galleries (File:Bristol MMB «K3 The Galleries.jpg) To the east of The Centre is the core of historic Bristol - the '''Old City'''. Here major streets include Queen Square, King Street, Baldwin Street, and Corn Street. It has wonderful Victorian and Georgian buildings, historic and charming pubs, and many places to shop, drink and eat. To the north-east of the Old City is Bristol's main shopping area - '''Broadmead''', centred on the Broadmead itself and related streets such as the Horsefair, Union Street and Penn Street as well as The Galleries shopping centre. At the east end of the Broadmead is the major new shopping centre at '''Cabot Circus''' and a related development of more boutique shops at Quakers Friars. If you go east of Cabot Circus and across the dual carriageway you get to the less affluent area of Old Market, while if you go north of it you get to the St. Paul's area, which is a hotbed of culture but is best visited during the day. To the north of The Centre are areas occupied by the city's hospitals, the bus station at Marlborough Street, and the University of Bristol. To the west of The Centre is the '''Harbourside''' area, much of which has been a scene of heavy urban regeneration since 2000 and includes parts of what used to be called Canon's Reach. Here you'll find eateries in converted warehouses, Millennium Square with its attractions such as At-Bristol, and offices and smart apartments in new developments. It's a great place to spend time by the water. It continues to the south of the Floating Harbour at the M Shed museum of Bristol life, along to the SS ''Great Britain''. To the north-west of The Centre, and up Park Street, you head for the '''West End''' with its smart independent shops, the City Museum and other attractions, and if you keep going along Queen's Road you get to the upmarket '''Clifton''' area, known for its suspension bridge and elegant Georgian architecture. The '''Tourist Information Centre''' can be found in the Watershed, a converted warehouse just off The Centre, just on the west side of the inlet of the Floating Harbour (St. Augustine's Reach). Walking south down The Centre, where the dock begins head to your right and under the colonnade. The Tourist Info Centre is a little way along. thumbnail right Aerial view of the Bristol International Airport (File:Bristol airport overview.jpg) Get in By plane thumbnail right Inside Bristol Airport's terminal (File:Bristol International Airport, terminal building departure area.jpg) '''Bristol Airport''' ( Commons:Category:Bristol Dmoz:Regional Europe United Kingdom England Bristol Wikipedia:Bristol
