This comprehensive guide to the architecture of the center of the City of Bristol encompasses all the significant buildings of the area: the cathedrals; key civic buildings; medieval, Georgian, and Victorian churches; commercial and industrial buildings; the university precinct; and the topography of the port. The book also covers the inner suburbs, including Clifton, Kingsdown, St Pauls, St Philips, Bedminster, and Hotwells. Short excursions provide a sample of the riches of five surrounding areas, Kingsweston House, Blaise Castle and hamlet, Tyntesfield, Arnos Vale, and Ashton Court Mansion. Throughout the book, significant new research findings are incorporated to illuminate the full range and variety of Bristol’s architecture.

Andrew Foyle is an independent historian. He was previously a local history researcher at Bristol City Museums and Art Gallery.

“Anyone exploring Bristol will benefit from having this book as a companion.”—Peter Dlugiewicz, Architects Journal

“A highly comprehensive survey of the city’s architecture. It is written with the kind of discerning authority that makes the reader take a hard look at a building’s distinguishing characteristics. . . . The color illustrations interspersed throughout are uniformly excellent. . . . The book is easy to consult, and its compact design makes it eminently portable. For scholars, teachers, and all students of English architecture. Highly recommended.”—Choice
