A must do when in Bristol is to shoot the grade 1 listed Clifton Suspension Bridge which was built in 1864 and spans the Avon Gorge. The Gorge itself is worth a photo as is the Clifton Observatory which sits above it. Other interesting sights are the Cabot Tower, Bristol Museum, Bristol Cathedral and Blaise Castle. There are in fact plenty of places worth visiting with your camera and would fill a weekend away in Bristol.

If you're keen to get learning then you can also visit our tutorial pages here. There's a great selection of free videos available covering a range of genre and topics.
