Buses from Bristol Airport with Bus Routes and Times

There are several city buses by operators First Group, Abu's, Buglers and Wessex Connect leaving from the airport for city destinations. The Airport Flyer Express Link is the fastest service to reach Temple Mead train station in central Bristol. Bristol buses also link to the main bus terminal in the city. Airport Flyer Express buses from Bristol Airport take approximately 30 minutes to reach the city center. The Airport Flyer Express service operates between 02.30 am and 11.45 pm daily and leaves the airport every 10 minutes.

The return fare for an adult ticket valid on the Airport Flyer Express is £10.00 for all central Bristol city destinations. For Bedminster, Redcliffe Way, Temple Meads and the bus terminal a single ticket will be charged at £6.00 per adult passenger. Passengers for Anchor Road and Clifton pay £7.00 for a single journey.

The A2 covers destinations in Clifton. Local First buses link from the city to the airport via their lines 1, 54, 54a, 40 and 40a. Their bus services 8 and 9 connect the Clifton Triangle and College Green bus stops with the Airport Flyer Express.

From the main bus terminal it is possible to catch various National Express coach services as well as local city buses. Coach trips to Salisbury in Wiltshire or the seaside resorts in Devon and Cornwall run several times during the day and bus links to Bath Spa are even more frequent. Bus operator Wessex Connect offers local buses to Weston-Super-Mare.

The wonderful thing about travelling by bus, be it via buses from Bristol Airport or local city lines, is that passengers can enjoy sampling a glass of British wine during their flight or have a pint of Somerset's finest cider when they reach the airport and not worry about getting into a car. From the comfort of the bus visitors can glean a first impression of what Bristol has to offer.

The city boasts no fewer than 51 Grade I listed buildings, more than 3,800 Grade II listed buildings dotted around the city. Representing a wide variety of architectural styles and ranging from the medieval period to the 21st century, the buildings themselves are as varied in the original uses as they are in design.

The Llandoger Trow is an ancient public house in the heart of Bristol and a favourite with tourists. The seventeenth-century timber-framed building with three gables and a traditional inn sign showing a picture of a sailing barge attract many hobby photographers and real enthusiasts alike. Built in 1664, the pub had originally five gables, but fell victim to WWII bombing raids.

The historic pub is located near the old city center docks. The word trow refers to a traditional flat-bottomed barge, which used to sail to trade in Bristol. Llandogo is a village situated 20 miles/32 km north-west of Bristol, just across the Severn Estuary and upstream on the River Wye in South Wales, where trows were built, when the pub still had five gables.

Travelling by city bus allows visitors far greater flexibility than the organised tourist buses do. Located just outside the historical city center Bristol boasts several large Tudor mansions, once owned by wealthy merchants, whose exotic goods were brought in by the merchant ships that scoured the world markets for spices, silks, jewels, Chinese pottery and Turkish carpets.

Thanks to the Airport Flyer Express buses from the airport linking with local city buses, a visit to Bristol Museum and Art Gallery on Queen's Road is easily arranged. Bus lines 1, 8, 8a, 9, 40, 40a, 41, 54 all pass the museum going up Park Street.
