An industrial port city, devastated during the Second World War; not an encouraging prospect! And yet...with its bustling port, Norman and Gothic buildings bearing witness to its prosperous past, its centre largely rebuilt after the war, warehouses converted into restaurants, exhibitions centres and art galleries, Bristol is a city of remarkable dynamism.
