History of Bristol

The city of Bristol has a population of nearly half a million people and is located in the southwest of England. Home to Atlas Web Design for many years, Bristol is a vibrant and diverse city.

Some Bristol history facts

Bristol became a city in 1542 and developed Atlantic trade routes which helped it grow and flourish into the creative community that stands today. The iconic Clifton Suspension Bridge was built in 1831 and is recognised by many as a major landmark in one of the southwest’s most beautiful cities.

Bristol’s growing population and demands for trade and commuting as a major city led it to build Bristol Airport in 1930. The Airport has become a beacon for many commuters in the southwest, either looking for a nice holiday away or simply to take their creative business ideas around the world.
