What to expect from Bristol Harbour Festival

Bristol Harbour Festival is the city’s biggest and most diverse showcase of culture, taking over the city’s urban and green spaces with live music, circus, spoken word, family activities and maritime adventures.

Venues include the Amphitheatre, Cascade Steps, Millennium Square, Queen Square, Cathedral Walk, SS Great Britain and of course on the water itself.

How to get to Bristol Harbour Festival

Due to its city-centre location, travelling by train to the festival couldn’t be easier. The festival starts at the tip of Bristol's harbour, a 20-minute walk from Bristol Temple Meads station. Buses will run between the station and the harbour.
