How could the birthplace of Banksy and Wallace & Gromit not be a great place for family days out? A walking tour celebrating the street artist and an exhibition about the plasticine duo opening later this year are just two of Bristol’s many attractions for kids
Bristol is the home city of the street artist Banksy. There are organised tours to help you spot his creations but it may be just as rewarding (and cheaper) to plan a self-guided walk. It’s more fun to happen on the murals rather than have them pointed out. Don’t miss his Mild Mild West creation in bohemian Stokes Croft, featuring a teddy bear getting ready to hurl a petrol bomb. On the way, you are bound to bump into other less famous but nonetheless vivid work from other artists. From Stokes Croft, St Paul’s where many of Bristol’s African-Caribbean population settled in the 1950s is a short walk and worth a detour.
