How do you like a city to ‘greet’ you? When visiting somewhere new, what kind of welcome makes you think it’s the sort of place that you want to be? How do you feel when you arrive into Bristol?
One of the key aims of many of the projects currently underway in the Temple Quarter is to contribute towards providing a first-class welcome for those arriving into Bristol via Temple Meads. It’s widely acknowledged that the current arrival experience is characterised by protracted crossings, busy roads and too many derelict sites. From new riverside walkways, improved infrastructure and large-scale developments such as the Bristol Arena, this will be much improved over the next few years.
However, small interventions can also help supply a warm – and memorable – welcome to both new and repeat visitors to the city. One such intervention will be taking place at Temple Meads, 24 hours a day from 2 to 10 September.
