Welcome to the web site of the Bristol Harbour

Floating Community.

Bristol's "Floating Harbour" is fairly unique in the sense that it is located upstream on a tidal river (the Avon).  The harbour is "floating" by virtue of the fact that it has massive locks and a containment basin at the downstream end.  These are closed when the tide is going out; hence the harbour itself is kept at its optimum level.

There is a wide variety of craft on the harbour, including quite a few "live aboards".  This site is intended primarily to serve this floating community.  

In addition, there is a wide variety of small and medium sized enterprise on and around the harbour which supports and serves the floating community in many different ways.  For a list of some of these, click on the "Sponsors" link in the navigating panel on the left.
