Bristol has come out on top in a survey of the UK’s most artistic cities, conducted by Premier Inn.
The results were compiled by totting up how well cities represented the arts, using the number of art galleries and museums, the average weekly number of live music gigs, the number of theatres, and the quantity of street art as a mark of each city’s artistic credentials.
