British Empire and Commonwealth Museum
The British Empire and Commonwealth Museum relates the dramatical history of Britain's Imperial past, and its consequences on today's multicultural Britain. 500 years of history is explained right up to the modern day Commonwealth.
The Museum opened its doors in 2002, and is housed in Isambard Kingdom Brunel's railway station at Temple Meads, Bristol, which was the worlds first purpose-built passenger railway terminus.
Book in advance for a guided tour of the building, where you'll visit "behind the scenes" of Brunel's architectural achievements.
There are sixteen permanent galleries, and it is possible to reserve for special exhibitions, events for families, lectures and seminars. There is a gift shop within the museum.
Opening hours are daily, from 10am to 5pm. Closed 25 December and Boxing Day.
Admission fees are £7.95 for adults, £3.95 for children from 5 to 15, free for under 5's, and £19.95 for a family. Ticket prices valid for 12 months of free re-entry.
Limited pay and display parking is available at the rear of the Museum.
St Mary Redcliffe Church
This Anglican Parish Church is one of the largest parish Church's of Britain. Some parts of the church date back to the 12th century, but the majority is from the 15th century. Its perpendicular architectural lines lead to a 89 metre high spire, which was struck by lightning in 1446, and rebuilt to its current height only in the1870s.
There are Victorian stained glass windows, and a pipe organ designed by Arthur Harrison in 1911. St Mary Redcliffe and Temple School opened in 1571, in the church's courtyard chapel, and stays linked to the church.
Queen Elizabeth I once described the church as "the fairest, goodliest, and most famous parish church in England."
The church opening hours are from 9am to 5pm on weekdays, and from 8am to 7.30pm on Sundays.
Wilton House is the property of the Earl of Pembroke and has been in his family for over 450 years. The house you see today was constructed in 1647 and built in the Palladian style: the Single and Double Cube Rooms are considered to be the finest examples of Palladian architecture in England. Later generations added to the original. A Palladian style bridge over the River Nadder was built in 1737 and cloisters on two levels were added in the 19th century. The house contains a world famous collection of Van Dycks. The interiors are much in demand for film sets and the extensive grounds beside the River Nadder have walks, gardens and water features. An interpretive centre has been created in the Old Riding School where visitors are introduced to the property with an award-winning film.
There is an adventure playground for children and special children's activities in school holidays. Facilities are in place for disabled visitors. There is a shop and restaurant on site.
The Cotswold Way is a designated 'National Trail' that runs along the Cotswold Escarpment for a distance of 102 miles between the Gloucestershire village of Chipping Campden and the town of Bath. The starting point - or end point, depending on which direction you are going - is outside the Town Hall in Chipping Campden, where it is marked by a large stone with a plaque.
Whilst the Cotswold Way has been actively promoted as a long distance path, it was only in 1998 that it received government endorsement to be developed as a National Trail and it was launched as such in 2007, making it the newest of the 15 specially designated trails.
