You’ll remember I wrote about how to film your travel video in Bristol’s harbourside and gave you some tips from my video making experience. Well, the video itself is finally here, thanks to the efforts of my friend and filming collaborator, Marie-Cécile Embleton.
There’s plenty to enjoy as I take you on a walk around the harbour, giving you a local’s view of the best things to visit, where to stay and my favourite places to eat and relax.

The harbourside has been the commercial heart of Bristol since the middle ages and the foundation of Bristol’s wealth. Once tall ships jostled for space along the quayside and sailed to India and Africa as part of the triangle trade taking British goods, spices and slaves to different parts of the world. In the last century the port was still busy with industrial activity, but after the second world war, like many ports, it went into a decline as the trade moved away. In the last ten years, however, the harbour has been redeveloped and transformed into a centre for leisure and pleasure. I’m pleased to be able to share some of my favourite things to see and do around the harbour – if you come and visit me in Bristol I’ll be happy to take you on this walk personally.
Do let me know what you think of my first attempt at being a TV travel presenter! I’ve got plenty more videos in the pipeline when I get round to the editing, so do keep an eye on my Youtube channel and subscribe if you can.
