Bristol’s Tourist Information Centre has a new home

Bristol’s Tourist Information Centre has now reopened in a new home on the ground floor of The Galleries shopping centre in Bristol Shopping Quarter. The information centre was previously located at Bristol’s Harbourside, but had to move due to the expansion of the Watershed.

On offer is a wide range of information and services for visitors and locals alike, including help with public transport, walking tours and itineraries plus a great range of souvenirs and gifts which are also available online:

To help organise and create a memorable stay, the experienced Tourist Information team are available to help visitors make the most of their time in the city and also to remind locals of the many attractions on their doorstep here in Bristol.

Locally sourced souvenirs

John Hirst, Chief Executive of Destination Bristol who run the Tourist Information Centre says:  “Visitors will be impressed with the array of locally sourced souvenirs for sale, including posters, mugs, jewellery, t-shirts and an impressive range of books and maps. Full details of all visitor attractions and leisure activities in the region are available and some tickets can be purchased for tours and attractions that are now reopening.”

“I am delighted that we have managed to find a new home for the Tourist Information Centre in The Galleries during what has been a difficult time for everybody. We look forward to welcoming visitors and locals to the new location.”

Tickets and Radar keys

Daily, weekly and monthly First Bus tickets and tickets for the Airport Flyer bus can be purchased in store and Radar keys (for accessible toilets) are available to buy for £4.50.

Shop safely

Measures have been put in place to make the experience at the new location as safe as possible, with a limit on number of people in the shop at any one time, contactless payments and PPE for staff.

The Bristol Tourist Information Centre is open 6 days a week (closed on Monday) from 11:00am – 5:00pm. The telephone number is 0117 239 7685. More information is available via the Visit Bristol website:
