8 abandoned landmark buildings in Bristol - and what they used to be

Many of these buildings require some love and attention

You can’t miss them. Eight major buildings across Bristol which were once busy with activity - but today are empty, many subject to long-running planning or legal disputes.

From the Grosvenor Hotel, struck by fire in October, to the former Debenhams department store which closed in October 2021, these big sites require heavy spending to bring them back into use.

But for the good of the city, it’ll be beneficial these sites soon get the love and attention (or the demolition) they require.
