Roadside Tulips in Bristol

The Fort Royal Gardens is not the only place where you can find flowers. Nor do you have to look look in unusual places, although you may miss out on some gems if you don't keep your eyes peeled or at least be aware of your surroundings in terms of plants. However, there are lots of other places in plain sight where you will be able to see some very striking floral displays.

Traffic Islands are one of those areas that make excellent locations although I am not sure how many people actually stop and admire them. In any case they are there slap bang in the middle of some of the business streets for everyone to see and appreciate if they take the time to do so.

One of the largest flower beds can be seen on Queens Road in Front of the Victoria Rooms which houses the University of Bristol's Music department and sits at the junction of Queens Road and Whiteladies Road.
