Like every other place on planet Earth, Bristol has its rough areas

Sounds polemical and apologetic. And it's not even true. Many places on planet Earth don't have "rough areas". Singapore, Helsinki and Dubai spring to mind. I'm sure there are many more. I'll change this phrase to something more neutral. 06:47, 24 Nov 2005 (EST)

Believe it or not, both Singapore and Helsinki do have rough areas — although I suspect I'd feel a lot safer walking through them alone at midnight than in Bristol's equivalents. Jpatokal 07:35, 24 Nov 2005 (EST)


Can someone who knows Bristol better than me suggest how to break this up into districts? I tried to use the "Eat" section, but gave up, 'cause most of the stuff appeared to be out of the city center area. Bristol is big and a mess for getting around. Someone in the city center (centre) is unlikely to have a car. -- Jonboy 16:36, 11 May 2006 (EDT)

Virtually all of the establishments currently listed in the "Eat" section are within a short walking distance (most of them under 15 mins) from the centre. 12:01, 13 September 2006 (EDT)

Listing Removals[edit]

Fresh and Wild 
In the budget section I put back a listing that starts The canteen in the Fresh and Wild ... because there was no explanation for removing it. - Huttite 08:35, 30 January 2009 (EST)

Fresh & Wild Bristol[edit]

From my talk page, in response to my welcome message on Jezhotwells talk page. - Huttite 22:03, 30 January 2009 (EST)

Fresh and Wild shut down in early 2008. That is why I removed it. Jezhotwells 21:23, 30 January 2009 (EST)

Thanks for that information. It just needed to be documented, on the Bristol talk page, why the removal took place, as unjustified removals could be interpreted as being anti-competitive. Just noting it in the comment notes is not always enough. If you make lots of edits to a page then all your changes can be viewed as a single difference, and the intermediate notes are not displayed. On this occasion I missed your note, as I was at the end of a late night session in front of the keyboard. Sorry about that. - Huttite 21:36, 30 January 2009 (EST)
sorry about my accidental erasure on your talk page, I did revert it, when I realised my mistake. I have removed several errors of fact and listings of attractions or businesses which have closed. Each such instance is documented in the edit. Jezhotwells 17:23, 31 January 2009 (EST)

Bristol isn't in Somerset, it isn't in Gloucestershire[edit]

As above Bristol has been a county since 1373 CE so surely should be listed directly under West Country. Jezhotwells 17:39, 31 January 2009 (EST)

having figured out the IsIn template have moved it up into West Country. Jezhotwells 16:01, 1 February 2009 (EST)


These two statements in the introduction and then in the 'Understand' section seem to contradict each other. "Bristol ranks fourth in England’s top visitor destinations", and later, "Although it’s often overlooked as a tourist destination..." How can a city be the 4th most popular destination in England, but still be considered overlooked by tourists? 23:55, 26 October 2010 (EDT)

Bristol by car[edit]

Bristol: great city, shame about the traffic and the Council's leftie hippie weird beard airy fairy liberal democrat beards and sandals brigade declaring war on cars and drivers! Particularly that mullet boy mayor. As primal scream said: Kill all hippies!
