This is a list of Lord-Lieutenants of the County and City of Bristol.

The position of Lord-Lieutenant of Bristol was created on 1 April 1996, when the county of Avon was abolished. Before then, the city was part of the Avon lieutenancy between 1974 and 1996, and before that it was part of the Gloucestershire lieutenancy, with the exception of a period from 1660 to 1672, when it was part of the Somerset lieutenancy.
