Walking- the ultimate functional exercise!
Is this part of your rehabilitation after injury or arthritis, are you working on fitness whilst recovering from surgery?
A walking tour of Bristol can be a workout for your body and mind. As a retired Clifton Rats rugby player Mike’s tours can be tailored to all fitness levels. Set off with Mike and 7000 steps later (longer or shorter available) you will be both invigorated and better informed.
We asked Mike about his walking tours:
“Walking, whilst listening to a tour guide around a city is a perfect form of exercise. On our walks you will listen via audio devices to Bristol’s fascinating History, from the Iron-age forts, the medieval name of Brigstow, the explorer John Cabot, trade with the Colonies, the merchants and manufacturers who generated the City’s wealth and the dubious Triangular Trade. View Brunel’s innovation, his railways, bridge, ship and see edgy Banksy’s, the city offers many different and interesting faces that you can explore on these fascinating guided walks. The style is a very inter active and personal. It is flexible, very easy going and fun.
Choose from two walks each 2 hours long. Either take Walk one and stroll around, Clifton, a sleepy village until 1700, developed in the Georgian and Victorian era’s into the ‘Mayfair’ of Bristol. Cross the suspension bridge, view the dramatic ‘Avon Gorge’, Historic Buildings, Grand Terraces, Crescents & Squares, see the Harbour, Banksy’s, University, Museum, ending at the cathedral and Centre. Or meet for Walk two around the Old City & Harbour. 1000 years of Trade and Industry made Bristol the UK’s second city. See the Cathedral, Banksy’s, Harbour, Docks, Georgian Square, Old Vic, ‘Bridge’, Castle site, Old City, corn exchange, markets, Guilds, Street Art, Sugar House, ending at the statue.”
