Official: Bristol is named the Coolest City in all of Britain

Probs all the wavey garms tbh

Rough Guides have named Bristol "the coolest city in Britain", only months after it was voted the fourth best city to visit in the world.

The article lists Bristol’s major hot air balloon events, popular places to eat and world-famous graffiti as just some of the reasons why the city took first place this year.

Author Grey Dickinson described the city as "Think London, but smaller and (dare we say it) cooler – or at least more committed to its offbeat counterculture, and with an enormous gorge cutting an improbable chunk through part of the city."

Having beaten London and Edinburgh, Dickinson also explained how Bristol’s unique nightlife and blooming technology industries led our city be Rough Guides’ winner.

No wonder they're all coming 'ere

It’s not been all about the urban part of the city, however; the guide also noted how the proximity of the city centre to the countryside led Bristol to be the 2017 champion.

With views of the surrounding countryside from Cabot Tower, it is safe to say that Bristol really gives us all the best of both worlds.
