Cultural Visits

Enjoy the end of the conference with a relaxing trip in the South West. Explore the city a little more or enjoy a tour of the landmarks that make Bristol famous!

Cultural visits will begin after the EYE Plenary and give you a chance to explore the city using our guided plans – but don’t feel you need to stick to them! There’s always plenty going on in Bristol that’ll catch your interest.

Return to Clifton on Sunday to explore some more of Clifton ‘village’ – a leafy suburb of Bristol featuring breathtaking views of the Avon Gorge and Clifton suspension bridge. Other attractions nearby you might like to see:

  • The Avon Gorge Hotel where you can enjoy high tea looking out over the bridge – keep an eye out for the local species of goats and peregrine falcons!
  • Clifton Suspension Bridge, towering 74m above the surface of the River Avon this is Bristol’s most famous landmark
  • Clifton Observatory featuring a camera obscura, caves that burrow deep into the cliff face and a geological feature with an unexpected purpose!
  • Bristol Zoological Gardens the world’s oldest provincial zoos featuring animals not kept anywhere else in the UK
  • Clifton Rocks Railway an unusual funicular railway hidden in the cliff face (opening hours TBC)

Bristol Harbourside

Bristol’s Harbourside is home to many attractions that will get any engineer’s heart racing! The world’s first steel-hulled ocean liner the ss Great Britain is preserved here, close by Bristol’s last operational boatyard Underfall Yard. Take a river taxi back down the river to the at-Bristol science centre and the M Shed industrial museum. If you’re more of a landlubber try returning along the riverside by steam train!


Weston Air Show
