Bristol, the green capital of Europe
Bristol is a port city of 426,000 people located 170 km west of London, between the hills and the sea, on the river Avon marking the border between the counties of Gloucestershire and Somerset. This city cultivates a natural spirit where people talk and smile with pleasure and effortlessly. The atmosphere rather peaceful, masks a permanent artistic bubbling. Street art is ubiquitous and the desire to go in search of the works of Bansky will make you walk a few kilometers on foot. With more than 450 parks and other green spaces, a port and renovated quays that shelter musical bars, walking is a real pleasure. In the city center, the energy tree embodies and symbolizes in part this federative drive of a population that wants to live differently. A few figures highlight this desire. In Bristol, nearly one in five residents walk to work; more than 90% of the population lives within 300 meters of a green space. For lunches or dinners, I invite you to go to the Ivy Clifton Brasserie in the heart of the Clifton Village. The place is sumptuous.
