Why Bristol? Some facts

Here is some more information on English courses in Bristol

Why take an English course in Bristol?

This city is known for its independent spirit and energetic vibe, and it gave the world Banksy and the invention of ‘Ribena’. Bristol may have a hill around every corner, yet this didn’t stop the hundreds and thousands of people of creating the UK’s first Cycling City. In this creative town, street art is everywhere and is completely transformed from just a few years ago. Many can be seen on the buildings that line North Street. You cannot think of Bristol without thinking of this famous landmark – the Clifton Suspension Bridge, and the water and green spaces that surround this city make you think of what it may have been like hundreds of years ago. It has been voted as the European Green Capital in 2015, yet water plays an integral part, and it’s worth viewing the life there too, with boats and ferries and bridges that swing to allow them to pass. Studying English in this city is worth it even just for the pastries and coffees you’ll wake up to before your lessons! Visit Hart’s Bakery, and finish it off with a coffee from Small Street Espresso! Everything is not what it seems over here, with theatres in old breweries, exhibition spaces in toilets and secret bars beneath Indian restaurants. Discover the hidden gems and treasures this lovely city has to offer and explore it all while learning English.
