Great Western Railway and other major train operators run local, regional and inter-city services from Bristol Temple Meads Railway Station and Bristol Parkway Railway Station.

If you’re a frequent traveller, it’s worth checking out getting a GWR Freedom Pass.


If you’re a frequent visitor to London or Bristol, you’ve most likely seen a few of these gliding around.

Voi E-Scooters are a contemporary, cool and carbon neutral way to explore Bristol. Run in collaboration with Bristol City Council, Voi’s e-scooters cover 60 square miles so they’re easy to find, quick to use with Voi’s app and lot’s of fun!

In true James Bond style, you can catch a boat to work in the morning or to run your daily errands. Whilst it might not be quite as fancy as 007, the Number Seven Boats and Bristol Ferry Boats operate regular ferry services to and from the waterfront attractions and key points along the harbourside.

For a journey with a difference, Avon River Cruises run private charter hire trips around Bristol harbour and the River Avon, with on-board catering if required.

Travel by car

Since 2022. Bristol has operated a Clean Air Zone in the city centre to tackle air pollution. This means that owners of all higher emission vehicles must pay to drive in the city centre. Whilst over 71% of vehicles travelling into the city already meet emissions standards, you can check whether you will be charged using the Government online compliance checking tool.

Don’t forget we also provide free onsite parking to all extended stay guests. Enquire here!

We hope you enjoy your visit to Bristol!
