Bristol is both a city and a county in South West England, with an estimated population of 460,000.
Bristol’s modern economy is built on creative media, electronics and aerospace industries. The city-centre docks have been redeveloped as centres of heritage and culture.
It is also one of Britain’s most popular tourist destinations, due to its wealth of arts and culture, and the opening of the £500million shopping centre, Cabot Circus, in 2008. Bristol’s thriving art scene hosts the Bristol Old Vic—an offshoot of The Old Vic in London—that occupies the Theatre Royal on King Street.
It is also a popular belief that the unidentified graffiti artist Banksy is from Bristol, with many of his artworks appearing around the city.
