Banksy"s street art, titled "Well Hung Lover" in Bristol, is another popular stop for tourists.

Banksy put "Girl with Balloon" through a hidden shredder after it was auctioned.

Murals such as "Mild Mild West" by Banksy have helped make Bristol one of the world capitals of street art.

Banksy paved the way for Bristol"s unique relationship with street art.

Bristol now has around 150 street artists.

Parts of Bristol, where Banksy is believed to originate, have become like an open-air museum studded with urban frescoes.
