About The Bristol Giants

Have you ever heard the stories of the legendary Bristol Giants, Goram & Ghyston?

Some people say they are scary. Some people say they don’t exist. Well, clearly, those people have never met Goram & Ghyston before!

Goram & Ghyston are brilliant. They are kind and clever and very strong. With their massive arms, they have built rivers lakes and mountains and they even threw the moon into the sky.

The Bristol Giants love adventures. Together with Ghyston’s wife, Princess Avona, and Goram’s Dragon, Digby, they are responsible for many of the beautiful landmarks that surround the beautiful city of Bristol and the world beyond.

Find out some more about their adventures in the Book Shop.

Walk in the Giant’s Footsteps

Although hundreds of years have passed since the Bristol Giants built their landmarks, they still survive today and you can go and visit them for yourself - what an awesome family adventure!

Landmarks from Goram & Ghyston: The Bristol Giants

For a magnificent view of the Avon Gorge and Ghyston’s Cave head to the Clifton Suspension Bridge. It is free to cross on foot and is open 24 hours a day all year round. You may spot Goram and Ghyston at the Visitor Centre, Leigh Woods, where you can find out lots more about the Gorge.

For Goram’s Chair and his Gorge, head to Blaise Castle Estate. It is a 650 acre, Grade II* registered parkland with a fantastic children's play area, museum and castle. If you venture into the woods you may even find Goram’s footprint stomped into the rocks.

Landmarks from The Bristol Giants & The Severn Seas

It is sad to say that boats from the The Bristol Giants & the Severn Seas have all turned back into trees. Leigh Woods is still a wonderful place to wander around and explore. It is also one of the Giants’ favourite places to play hide and seek - So keep your eyes peeled!

Landmarks for the Bristol Giants Save Christmas

If you are looking for the "Giant spotting" trip of a lifetime, then we suggest a round the world ticket! Head to South Africa for Table Mountain; Nepal for Everest, America for the Grand Canyon and Egypt for the Pyramids. If your Giant spotting enthusiasm or budget does not stretch quite that far, we recommend a visit to Stonehenge in Wiltshire. You can see for yourselves just how strong the Giants must be to play with stones like that!
