Castle Park is the largest green space in the city centre, it is a popular spot for picnics during the summer when we actually get some sun there was none when we visited just drizzle so we had a quick look around. Within the park are the remains of Bristol Castle which was built by the Normans and demolished on the orders of Oliver Cromwell in 1650, there are also the remains of St Peters Church which was destroyed by bombing during World War II. next to the Church is a lovely herb garden and seven silver birch trees which were planted to commemorate the seven beaches of the D Day Landings.
