Bristol is the largest city in south-west England, and has a rich maritime heritage. The 19th-century engineer Isambard Kingdom Brunel (designer of the Great Western Railway) is famously linked to Bristol, having done more than anyone to shape the face of the modern city – his legacy includes the Clifton Suspension Bridge and the SS Great Britain (moored at the Great Western Dockyard). Another familiar landmark is The Victoria Rooms, a fine early-Victorian classical building once used for readings by Charles Dickens and Oscar Wilde. Like any other major conurbation, restaurants in Bristol offer a wide choice, ranging from fast food and world cuisine to fine dining. In Clifton, the laid-back Lido restaurant overlooking the swimming pool at the restored Victorian lido is a popular choice, while the updated harbour boasts the eco-friendly Bordeaux Quay, and excellent views and to-the-point cooking at riverstation.
