King Street

At the end nearest the port, this street is lined by 17C pubs and 18C and 19C warehouses. You can also admire the Bristol Old Vic, the oldest theatre still in use across the country. Further on, the Merchant Seamen's Almshouses, built in 1544 and enlarged in 1696, are adorned with colourful coats-of-arms on the outside wall.
