The Old City, the area concerned in the above picture, gets its name due to being the oldest part of the city that was once within the old city walls. There are no longer any remains of the city walls. Originally, the city was surrounded on three sides by water, the River Avon to the east and south and by St. Augustine's Reach (the waterway on the left that used to continue and finish up by St. Nicholas Markets - the circular building). The city walls were heavily damaged in the Second World War but amazing very little of the city itself was! Join me as I take you for a wander around the Old City.
