  • Building styleCorinthian

Built in the 18th century, the Italian Renaissance influenced Bristol Exchange was centred around an open-air space for up to 700 traders to congregate to strike deals. This was covered by an ornate roof for protection from the elements (later bomb damaged in WWII), creating the covered market we know today.
