16 great things we could once do in Bristol - but are gone forever

Gallery shows the things we could once do in Bristol, but have been lost to us over the years

Bristol has changed quite a lot over the years – and it’s meant some of the things we were once lucky enough to be able to do have disappeared.

We have put together a gallery of 16 things that were either iconic sights in the city, useful facilities, or just great fun to do. Many of us remember them from childhood, or even later in life.   

Because of changing times, economics, or even health and safety, these are no longer available for us to do. 

We have found pictures from the archives which will bring the memories flooding back.

They are signs of the many ways in which the city has changed over the years. 

Which of these do you miss the most?
