Car hire at Bristol Airport allows you to access the port town of Bristol in under 20 minutes, along the A38. Famous for shipbuilding when Isembard Kingdom Brunel, Bristols famous son, created the floating harbour, Bristol still has a harbour but it has been turned into a tourist attraction, with museums like MShed, exploring Bristol life from the prehistoric to the present day. The harbour also boasts galleries, bars and nightclubs. Hiring a car allows access across Bristol and on into Bath, the Cotswolds and North Somerset. Having hosted literary figures across the ages, from William Wordsworth to J.K.Rowling, Bristol is an inspiring and diverse place to be.
