The City of Bristol is located on the banks of the River Avon between the counties of Gloucestershire and Somerset.
Bristol has a short coastline on the Severn Estuary and is the largest city in South West England and the eigth largest in the UK.
The River Avon joins the Severn estuary at Avonmouth, flowing into the Bristol Channel and has meant Bristol has always been a busy sea port.
Historically the Port of Bristol was originally in the city centre before being moved to the Severn Estuary at Avonmouth
and in recent years the city centre docks have been regenerated as a centre of heritage and culture.
