Welcome to the Town of Bristol, Maine!

Bristol is located on the scenic Pemaquid Peninsula, approximately 60 miles north of Portland, and is made up of five charming villages: Bristol Mills, Round Pond, Chamberlain, New Harbor and Pemaquid.

Rich in natural beauty and history, you can spend a day— or several—exploring Bristol’s many sites and activities. A sample itinerary might include the spectacular scenery at Pemaquid Point Lighthouse (featured on the Maine State Quarter), the archaeological sites at Colonial Pemaquid and Fort William Henry, a refreshing swim in the Atlantic at Pemaquid Beach, and finally, rewarding yourself with the freshest lobster you’ll find anywhere.

Our municipal offices are located in the historic Town House building in Bristol Mills.
