Thrifty Van Hire Bristol North

Bristol North is a part of the historic county of Gloucestershire. Bristol North lies about 120 miles west of London; in the banks of River Bristol Avon. The city suffered from extensive bombing during World War II, but recovered quickly. Bristol North was considered as a constituency that returned one Member of Parliament to the House of Commons of the Parliament of the UK from 1885 until the 1950 general election.

The beautiful Avon flows into the estuary of the River Severn and empties into Bristol Channel of the Atlantic Ocean. Bristol North throughout was considered as a commercial centre. The port of Bristol North was set up in mediaeval times at the union of Avon and Frome River, requiring ships to steer the tidal and steep Avon Gorge at Avonmouth.

Bristol North witnessed a decline in its manufacturing industry but improved on other sectors. The city has three major parks for the locals and the tourists to enjoy. These are - Downs, Blaise Castle and Ashton Court. The city has two football clubs - Bristol City and Bristol Rovers. It also has a number of non-league clubs. It also has a rugby union club, a first-class cricket side - Gloucestershire C.C.C. and a Rugby League side.

Blaise Castle estate has a recreation ground and large playing fields, a mansion, and a small gorge. The mansion is now a part of the Bristol City Museum and Art Gallery.

The bus network, provided by the First Group have been criticised for being unreliable and expensive. The city does not have any light rail system yet. These drawbacks are negligible as van hire companies operating in the city are very effective and efficient.

In Bristol North, there are NCP car parks and street parking available for your van hire from Thrifty Car Rental.
