Leisure and culture

Examples of public art

Our vision for sport in the south-west is that people should have the best opportunity to start, stay in and succeed in sport. All exercise is good for you, no matter how old you are. It can help to reduce the risk of developing heart disease or strokes, reduce stress and anxiety and has many more benefits – so do it!

But if you want to relax you will find that South Gloucestershire is a culturally diverse area. There are historic houses and gardens, country parks, community museums, industrial heritage centres and even mines which are open to the public and would welcome your visit.

Whatever you're interested in, you'll probably find it in South Gloucestershire.
