Bristol is a fantastic place to foster children as not only are you surrounded by so many places to visit, but also because Bristol has rich cultural institutions. With bustling shopping centres, museums and great restaurants there is something for everyone. There are several community and adventure farms that the younger foster child would love, the Clifton Suspension Bridge & Visitor Centre is a great learning experience and there are countless gardens and play areas.
Bristol is modern and cosmopolitan city, but also a green city being situated on the Frome and Avon rivers. It is the perfect place to foster!
