What to expect

Explore and learn about Bristol's Old City at your own pace, discover it's independent food and drink venues and see some awesome street art (including two Banksy's). Whether you've been in Bristol for five minutes or five decades, this audio tour is bound to interest you with some facts about the city that you didn't know.

The tour takes you through the oldest parts of the city. Using your location, the app plays audio automatically, at exactly the right time and place. Discover where Bristol all began, what happened to the castle, why it has a clock with two times, why it had such a busy port and why so many things are being renamed.

You can travel through markets, relax in a park, pass through the last remaining city gate, view the cathedral and historic docks, marvel at the street art and see the city's oldest pubs.

As it's all about you enjoying it at your own speed, you can stop as often as you like. To assist with this, your local audio tour guide will give you loads of ideas of places to eat and drink, guide you to a street which is a craft beer lover's paradise, point out a couple of breweries and tell you the story behind them.

On the day of your tour, you’ll receive a unique code within a few hours and instructions on how to download the tour on the VoiceMap platform (you will need to have a compatible Android or I-Phone to download the app). Your code accesses the tour, which you can download in advance to use the maps offline. Once downloaded onto your phone, the tour can be taken any time and does not expire.

Tickets are for two or three devices so multiple codes will be sent to you. It is strongly recommended that each person taking the tour is given a code and downloads the tour onto their own phone.
