This comprehensive guide to the architecture of the center of the City of Bristol encompasses all the significant buildings of the area: the cathedrals; key civic buildings; medieval, Georgian, and Victorian churches; commercial and industrial buildings; the university precinct; and the topography of the port. The book also covers the inner suburbs, including Clifton, Kingsdown, St Pauls, St Philips, Bedminster, and Hotwells. Short excursions provide a sample of the riches of five surrounding areas, Kingsweston House, Blaise Castle and hamlet, Tyntesfield, Arnos Vale, and Ashton Court Mansion. Throughout the book, significant new research findings are incorporated to illuminate the full range and variety of Bristolís architecture.
