Join us on a heritage and photography walking tour, and be inspired by Bristol's colourful past - as well as some secret history!
Join us in Bristol for a photography walk around this diverse historic city. You’ll be guided by one of our heritage experts who will be pointing out the city’s most interesting subject matter, alongside our in-house photographer, who will offer hints and tips about making the most of your camera and the landscape around you.
We'll be taking a trip through time across the city. Starting in castle park, which was the old city centre until it was bombed in WW2, we'll be walking across the surviving part of the old city, then down across King Street and Queen Square (the scene of the 1831 Bristol Riots); and finally along the Harbourside to the M Shed Museum for industrial inspiration.
What will I need?
This walk is designed for those with an interest in photography, looking to broaden their skills and seek out new subjects. You will need to bring your own camera equipment with you. We recommend carrying light, as the walk will take around 45 minutes.
Where will we walk?
The walk will be a circular route, starting and ending at the north side of St Peter's Church in Castle Park. Wessex Archaeology reps will be clearly marked in branded high visibility vests.
It will incorporate short stops at buildings and areas of interest to discuss the heritage and take photographs.
How much does it cost?
The walks cost £15 per person. Wessex Archaeology is a registered educational charity and all proceeds will be used for public benefit initiatives.
