First Bus provides bus services for getting around Bristol, Bath and the West, allowing you to explore everything the region has to offer. With almost 100 routes currently operating, it’s easy to hop aboard and leave the car at home or at your hotel. You’ll also avoid Bristol’s £9 Clean Air Zone charge for driving in the city centre, as well as the parking charges. There are so many things to do in Bristol this summer, including Unicornfest, the Bristol Unicorn trail. Explore Bristol and the wider area to see 60 uniquely designed Unicorns created by local artists. The trail is raising money for Leukaemia Care and we’re proud to sponsor Brizzle Icons (find it on the 2nd floor of Cabot Circus) created by the fabulous Cock Dicks.
