Take an immersive audio tour this month, to discover some of Bristol’s hidden and vibrant spaces.
Bristol Open Doors have launched Hidden Bristol, offering three specially curated walking tours. The walks will allow you to explore the city with a personal guided audio tour.
Groups of up to 40 walkers will be able to celebrate Vibrant Bristol, discover the Hidden Harbour and uncover Temple Tales. These themed tours have been created by artists and historians to create a living history of the city’s spaces. Perfect for exploring the city in a safe socially distanced way.
Hidden Bristol tours feature characters from all corners of the city, giving you a personal interaction with the city and its residents.
A tour through history and colour
The Hidden Harbour has been curated by city poet Vanessa Kisuule. This year, Bristol’s quayside caught the attention of people around the world. With this tour, you will journey through 1,000 years of history, from the Merchant traders and enslaved people, to the spot where the statue of Edward Colston was plunged into the harbour. Featuring No. 10 Guinea Street (as seen on BBC’s A House Through Time), hidden caves and M-Shed docks, you will hear the stories of the harbour from the curators, the shakers and the history-makers of this radical city.
Vibrant Bristol will explore if the city is better with colour and street art as a part of our identity. Meanwhile, Temple Tales will take you through the history of the Temple Quarter, visiting the ruins of Temple Church and Finzels Reach.
Celebrate the city through the people who know it best by taking one of these immersive audio tours. Want to discover more walks and tours this Autumn? We’ve a few suggestions you might like.
