Portishead has along history built on its location on the Bristol Channel.

From Romans to wealthy Victorians, many have found their way to this unique gateway to our seas.

Art is story telling… and there is no better way to learn the history and culture of Portishead than by walking or cycling the Portishead Art Trails.

Established almost 25 years ago, our three trails will take you on a journey through time and the port, its stories and history brought to life through a series of sculptures and installations.

You can either enjoy this insight into “Posset” digitally through an app combined with guide leaflets or with our very own local artist and former lecturer Martin Dowling.

Martin adds his own personal interpretation to the walk, adding a rich colour and warmth from a local boy who understands the connection between place, its people and its story.
