Bristol's Floating Harbour

In 1809 Bristol was transformed by the opening of the Floating Harbour. Over the next two centuries the Harbour grew as a busy commercial port until it closed in 1975. Since then, it has been regenerated for leisure, commerce and residence.

Isambard Brunel

Harbour House is the oldest surviving transit shed on the harbour side. Cargoes unloaded in Bristol Docks were held in transit sheds prior to being moved onwards to their destination. Apparently Isambard Brunel designed template for these sheds.


Not many people know that over 20 years ago a little known artist, just starting on the scene called @banksy hosted his very first solo-exhibition under his own name here (under a previous incarnation) Many of his early originals were exhibited, mostly stencil and acrylic works on canvas and at the time of release all of the artworks were priced under £1000
