The Original Bristol Blue Glass

Bristol Blue Glass Limited (Bath Road Studio Shop)

was started back in 1988 by James Adlington,

with the help of glass maker Peter St Clair. The aim

was to re-establish a glass making tradition back into Bristol

that had been lost for over 60 years. Their studio is open 6

days a week (Mon - Sat), the shop is open 7 days a week, and

entrance to watch glass being made is completely free. So if

you are passing their shop and factory, why not pop in and

see the glass being blown for yourself.

Arnos Vale cemetery

Arnos Vale Cemetery is a

place of heritage, containing

many listed buildings and

monuments of regional, national and

international importance. It is also a

place of tranquillity, a 45 acre haven of

peace and quiet in an otherwise busy

part of a bustling city.

Beese’s Tea

Gardens

Come and

discover Bristol’s

best kept secret. Beese’s

Tea Gardens was founded

in 1846 by Mrs Beese, who

provided refreshments to

the many travellers using

the Conham Ferry, the

captain of which was Mr

Beese. The Conham Ferry

runs from Beese’s to the

Hanham side of the river,

and is the oldest river ferry

crossing on the River Avon.

Beese’s are delighted to

carry on the tradition by

operating the ferry during

their opening hours.
