Archaeological evidence indicates that people have inhabited the area surrounding Bristol since the palaeolithic era. However, it wasn’t until the Iron Age and later the Roman period that a fully functioning settlement developed here.
By the 11th century, this had become known as “Brycgstow”, which, translated from Old English, means “the place at the bridge”. About a hundred years later, in 1155, Bristol received its royal charter.
This much-loved city was once a starting place for early voyages of exploration to the New World. In fact, it was from Bristol that John Cabot, the first European since the Vikings to land in mainland North America, set sail. Naturally, however, one doesn’t have to venture across the Atlantic to indulge with delicious treats to hand.
Instead, why not stop in an Afternoon Tea Bristol establishment for cakes, scones and sandwiches – all washed down with a nice, hot cuppa. What more could you want from a lovely day out?
