Bristol port (Avonmouth) serves a major UK city, as well as an Unitary Authority (UK local authority) area and a county in southwestern England. Bristol has population of around 443,000, ranking it England's 6th and the UK's 8th most populous city. This is also the most populous city in southern England - after London.
Local people are referred to as Bristolians. The city borders with the Unitary Authority areas of South Gloucestershire and North Somerset. It also borders with the historic cities of Gloucester and Bath (to the northeast and southeast, respectively). Its combined city and county area is 110 km2 (40 ml2).
Iron Age hill forts and Roman villas were created near the confluence of the rivers Avon and Frome, and around the beginning of 11th century the settlement was famous as Brycgstow (Old English "the place at the bridge"). The city of Bristol received royal charter in 1155. It was in Gloucestershire until 1373, when became a county. From the 13th to 18th century, Bristol was among the top 3 English cities after London (York and Norwich) in tax receipts. The city was surpassed by the quick rise of Liverpool, Birmingham and Manchester during the Industrial Revolution.
The port of Bristol was a starting place for voyages of exploration to the New World. In 1497, on a ship out of Bristol, the Venetian John Cabot became the first European since the Vikings to land on mainland North America. The Bristol merchant William Weston was the first Englishman to lead an exploration to North America in 1499. Since then, the Port of Bristol has moved from Bristol Harbour in the city centre to Severn Estuary at Avonmouth and Royal Portbury Dock.
