Bristol grew out of a Saxon settlement at the confluence of the rivers Avon and Frome. A bridge was built there and the settlement was known as 'Brigstow'. Today, Bristol is a leading international port, with extensive facilities, including docks at Avonmouth, Portishead, and Royal Portburg. It is a transportation hub and is a financial services center. General and nuclear engineering and the design and manufacture of aircraft are the largest industries - in fact, the Concorde was built in Bristol. Others major industries include flour milling, printing, and the manufacture of paper, footwear, and tobacco products.

Bristol has been a trading centre since the 12th century and was first chartered as a city in 1155. It became a separate county by order of Edward III in 1373, the first provincial town to receive this honour. During the reign of Edward III the manufacture of woollen cloth was developed. In the 18th century Bristol was active in the colonial triangular trade: English goods went to Africa; African slaves to the West Indies; and West Indian sugar, rum, and tobacco to Bristol. The slave trade was opposed by John Wesley and by Quakers, who were influential in Bristol.

Bristol's port declined during the late 18th and early 19th century, primarily because of competition from Liverpool, the end of slave trading, and the decline of the West Indian trade. It was again revived in the mid-19th century and Bristol still boasts a major leading international port.
