Committed to creating a culture of curiosity, At-Bristol became We The Curious in September 2017. Their updated facility is not a mere visit-and-leave science attraction anymore, but one where visitors get to interact with exhibits, do some testings and participate.

– The Bristol Cathedral will be closed to visitors on Tuesday 26 and Thursday 28 Sept.
– If you’re driving, have it at the back of your mind that Bristol is hilly, you’ll definitely meet inclines and uphill drives so buckle up!
– You might not want to make bookings to Clifton Suspension Bridge during the second week of August if you’re solely determined to tour the bridge because the bridge is closed during the Bristol Balloon Fiesta Night Glows (Thursday and Saturday) from 6pm until Midnight.
