A Hollywood-Style Sign Just Appeared In Bristol

Adding a touch of glamour to the muddy banks of the Avon Gorge.

1. We’re all familiar with the glitz and glamour of the Hollywood sign, whether we’ve been there or not.

2. Well, now a mystery individual has put up their own version in Bristol.


The ‘Bristoland’ sign has been placed above the Pill Path in the Avon Gorge.

The white plastic lettering is said to be eight feet high (about a fifth of the size of the real Hollywood marker) and was first spotted on Friday morning. As of yet no one knows who is responsible for making the sign.

3. And it’s caused a lot of excitement from locals on Twitter.

5. Even model and TV star Amy Willerton, who hails from Bristol, was excited about the addition to her hometown.

6. It has led to others mocking up their own versions. (Via @MiserableBath).

Here we go Bath, my gift to you after a lunch time expedition up to the hills. Take that inferior Bristol types!

7. It’s not the first time a Hollywood-esque sign has gone up in the U.K. This one was part of an old bowling alley in Batley, near Leeds.

8. And Basildon in Essex once had its own version.
