All you need to know about Bristol

Historically renowned as a key player in the industrial revolution, engineer Isambard Brunel put Bristol on the map as a forward thinking, rapidly advancing city. Today, with an economy built on media, aerospace and a focus on supporting independent local businesses by spending with the city’s own community currency, the Bristol pound, Bristol is just as much of a vital economic powerhouse as in the 19th century. As a key business travel destination, booking a serviced apartment with SilverDoor Apartments for your business trip to Bristol is crucial in ensuring a productive stay.

What is a serviced apartment?

The serviced accommodation industry was built with business travellers in mind. As the undeniable top choice for professional individuals, serviced accommodation in Bristol offer the following benefits and much more:

·         Luxury. Unlike hotel rooms that are often cramped and uninteresting, serviced accommodation is spacious and fully furnished with modern features and stylish interior décor. Space and privacy will prove invaluable to the comfort and productivity of your stay, as you are able to relax, work, cook and host all in the comfort of your private apartment space. Live on your own terms in a serviced apartment.

·         Unbeatable value. Like for like, serviced accommodation in Bristol is cheaper than an equivalent hotel room making it the far more attractive option. Furthermore, serviced apartments benefit from a tax discount on extended stays meaning for a business traveller looking to relocate to Bristol needing temporary accommodation while awaiting permanent residence, there is no better option.

·         Flexibility. When sourcing your own accommodation or when booking with a hotel, you can often feel disconnected from the property and unable to ask for compromises on things like cancellation policies, checkout times or housekeeping. When booking with a travel agent like SilverDoor with a serviced accommodation provider, regulations on such factors can be negotiated to suit your schedule; all you need to do is ask.

What is Bristol known for?

Clifton Suspension Bridge

A feat engineering, this impressive iron structure has become an icon of the city: renowned globally as an example of the city’s advanced industrial mind-set and economic driving force. Linking both sides of the Avon Gorge and towering majestically over River Avon, Clifton Suspension Bridge is a sight to behold.

Banksy

World famous street artist Banksy has built such a powerful persona through controversial, thought provoking art pieces presented on otherwise unsuspecting public spaces. Walls, roads and billboards have been subject to his spray paint and as Banksy hails from the Bristol area, many of his most iconic pieces can be found in the city.

Bristol Pound

The Bristol Pound is the UK’s largest local currency and has the main aim of supporting local businesses, localising supply chains and promoting job creation. You don’t need to be a permanent Bristol residence to use the £B, anyone can convert Sterling and use it in participating businesses.

A Green City

In 2015, Bristol was the first UK city to be recognised as a European Green City. With more than 400 green park spaces, vast cycling routes and renewable energy solutions such as a bio-methane powered bus, Bristol promotes low carbon living.
