Your Top 10 historical sites in Bristol – #RSH Guides

Posted on

In our weekly competition, 10 savvy commuters win £10’s worth of loyalty points by tweeting their tips to us at #RSH Guides, for us to share through foursquare. This week, we asked you for your favourite historical sites in Bristol.

Read on for this week’s winning tips and find out where to go if you’re looking for a taste of history in Bristol…

@GeorgeHThomas was the first onto our winner’s list this week with a top tip to visit the city’s iconic Clifton Suspension bridge, opened in 1864.

• Next in our top ten @selincanperk earned herself a spot with her twitter tip to visit The Blaise Castle House Museum and check out its extensive collection of Victorian toys and costumes.

@adamgreene27 glided into the winner’s circle this week with a top shout to visit the old Corn Exchange, which still has 4 authentic bronze ‘Nails’ outside – the place where traders would meet to pay on the nail.

@Sarahgeorgey landed in the top ten this week with a great recommendation to check out the beautiful architecture at the historic Bristol Cathedral.

• History buff @gumbie23 earned those loyalty points too this week after suggesting a visit to the Christmas Steps – a quirky street in the heart of Old Bristol.

@fraserbalaam pulled in the loyalty points too this week with a great shout, recommending a trip to Cabot Tower on Brandon Hill. The historic monument has been standing since 1898, and the climb to the top rewards visitors with some of the best views of the city.

@TomBishop chugged into the top ten with a top tip to descend into underground Bristol and explore the Redcliffe caves with more than 4km of paths running right under the city.

@BythewayAJ raked in the prize points as well this week with a brilliant tweet suggesting a stop at the idyllic Arnos Vale Cemetery. This free attraction is brimming with 45 acres of history close to the heart of Bristol.

@inspiredscilly also claimed a spot on our top ten this week with a great tip to check out The Red Lodge – a restored Elizabethan house complete with beautiful knot gardens. What’s more, entry is free.

• And pulling in the last of this week’s points, @squidly777 steamed into the top ten with a savvy nudge to visit The New Room at John Wesley’s Chapel, a must see whether you’re religious or not.

Congratulations to this week’s winners – and thanks for all of your Twitter recommendations! If you didn’t win this week, don’t worry – you could win in next week’s competition.

Just don’t forget to tweet your tips to us at #RSH Guides, so you can be in with the chance of winning some loyalty points next week.
