Brief History

The Regency Bristol Hotel with its Italianate features and wrought iron balconies was originally part of an exclusive residential development built in 1850, when the newly married Queen Victoria was in her heyday. On the outskirts of the elegant Georgian village of Clifton, these houses were built on the green fields near the new Bristol zoo and St. Paul's Church. Intended as a respectable suburban enclave for the burgeoning population of middle class ‘ladies and gentlemen’, no ‘noisy noxious or offensive trades’ were to be allowed here!

Indeed its developers included the well-known Bristol surveyor and map maker George Ashmead, as well as the builder William Hamley and his more genteel partner George Burges, who that same year built the Clifton Victoria Baths, just behind The Regency Bristol better known today as the Lido.

Bristol has become the thriving capital of the West Country and boasts many attractions and places of historical interest. As a key trading port for centuries, her maritime interest is reflected in a unique area built around the waterfront. Today this provides a focal point for leisure and entertainment.
