For the past thousand years, Bristol’s welcome to refugees and ‘foreigners’ varied from the welcoming to the hostile. Led by Madge Dresser, this guided walk highlights the little-known stories of Bristol’s refugees, asylum seekers and immigrants, from the medieval Jews to French Protestant refugees who washed up homeless in Bristol in the 1680s.
