These spots feature both traditional British cuisines and international flavors.

Until recently, Bristol, England was best known for Banksy’s artistic graffiti and as the site of the hit-television show Skins.  That’s starting to change, however, and the city is gaining notoriety across many fields. 

Bristol, located in South West England a quick train ride from Wales and only two hours from London, has made quite a name for itself as one of the UK’s up-and-coming cities.  It was a finalist for the European city of culture in 2008, named bike capital of the UK (despite having hills that rival San Francisco’s) and recently won the European Green Capital award.
