Word From The Wise: Adam Hart-Davis

Bristol’s favourite TV historian (well, joint favourite with Baldrick) Doctor Adam Hart-Davis is a great lover of Bristol, its theatre and its cycling facilities. Renowned throughout BS1 to BS19 as the presenter of What The Romans Did For Us and Tomorrow’s World, we caught up the blue-blooded, white haired eccentric to ask these three taxing questions on your behalf:

What are three things you love about Bristol?
I love the fact that Bristol is a real city with all the facilities you could want, that it’s small enough to go everywhere by bike and that Bristol is full of fabulous history.


What are your all-time, top-five things to do in Bristol with a free afternoon/evening?
1. Go walking or cycling or flying a kite on the Downs.
2. Go down to the waterfront and Millennium Square and enjoy all the facilities there.
3. Go across the Suspension Bridge, call in at the Botanic Garden and walk in Leigh Woods.
4. Go to one of the theatres in the centre.
5. Cycle along the Bristol-Bath Railway Path.

What advice would you give to a new student starting out in the city?
Try to do something different every day.
