to Bristol' Walking Map
Commissioned with the simple aim to provide the visitor with a free walking
map of the centre of Bristol. The look, feel and information relate directly
to the pedestrian signing system and the user is given more information on how
to move around the city.
The map includes details of railway and bus terminals, waterways and ferries,
taxi locations, car parks, hospitals and neighbourhoods. In addition, on the
reverse, the central area is extended to include Clifton, and there is written
information about travelling by foot, bike or ferry, as well as by bus, train
or car. Useful numbers, tourist information advice are also included. The map
is created using all of the elements of the Bristol Legible City graphic identity.
600,000 copies of the map were printed and are available for free through the
Bristol Tourist Information Bureau and through hotels, universities, shops,
public facilities and libraries.
The public response has been very supportive and favourable and the take up
rate has been high. Bristol Cultural Development Partnership is currently undertaking
a survey and assessment – so we should know more soon.
