Study English in Bristol

Welcome to one of the great historic cities in England.

Bristol is an elegant English city , drawn by the silhouette of the Avon River that separates southern England from Wales. Since the beginning , its prosperity has been linked to its commercial port that originated the city center .

Bristol has always had an adventurous spirit. In the past, explorers departed from the port in search of new horizons and adventures; Today, this bold and creative spirit is reflected in its art and architecture. Bristol is one of the largest cultural centers in the region , a city that promotes modern culture and sounds of the new generations, diverse music, alternative fashion and abstract art galleries .

It is famous for its theatre , music and cinema . It also has an exceptional location in the west of the country , surrounded by coast and countryside, and has all the natural beauty which is lacking in other large cities like London and Birmingham.
