Street Art in Bristol, England: A Pictorial

Submitted by Bethany on Fri, 02/08/2019 - 10:00

Bristol, England is a city in the Somerset area, about an hour from where we've been housesitting. It is also rumored to be the birthplace and hometown of Banksy - the renowned yet completely anonymous street artist. As we wandered around the city this week we found a ton of street art, all of it amazing! 

Since the street art speaks for itself, and I don't really know the stories behind any of it, I'm just going to share the pictures with you here. I will say, only one of these pieces is allegedly a Banksy. I'd love to hear your guesses at the end as to which one it is! I will post them in the order we found them as we wandered the city.

There you have it! Be sure to let me know which one is your favorite, and which one you think is the Banksy!

XOXO, Bethany


Your thoughts?

I really like the bottom one (#9) I wonder who it is (it's definitely not a classic Banksy style).  It would be easy to trace #1 - they provide their insta on it :). 

Being near Bristol makes me realize that you are kind of near Bath. That is a fun side trip too but the actual Roman Baths are not free to tour. You'd like be timed to get off-peak pricing though. Anyway, I'm having a moment of de'ja'vu so ignore me if I have already said this. 

Yeah, we thought about going to Bath, especially when Steve was here last week (since it's a bit of a longer drive.) In the end we decided it wasn't really worth it for what you named - it costs to get into the baths and Steve said they really weren't worth it in his opinion. Other than that Bath is famous for good shopping which we can't afford/don't have room for stuff, lol. 

Oh yes, Number 9 is really cool. I wish I could have gotten closer to catch more of the detail! 

I wondered if anyone would catch that about #1 ;)
