The West's dominate city, Bristol has a long and eventful history with it prosperity linked to its port and sea connections offering trading opportunities with Iceland, Ireland and France, leading to John Cabot's voyages to North America and further development of the colonies established there and later included being a part of the 'triangle' of ship movements that were involved in the slave trade. Later industries and development included notable contributions from Victoria engineer Isambard Kingdom Brunel who oversaw the Great Western Railway connection to London (including Bristol's main rail station, Temple Meads) along with designing Bristol's iconic Clifton Suspension Bridge and the SS Great Britain, and the construction the the first Methodist Chapel by John Wesley and modern engineering which has seen Concorde and the development of aerospace in Bristol, all of which now form just some of the attractions available to visitors to the City today.
