Bristol, Somerset

Have a day out taking in the sights and sounds of Bristol. There’s so much to see and do in this upbeat, vibrant city; wander the length of Gloucester Road, with its quirky shops and cool cafes, taking in the colourful murals of Stokes Croft; explore the streets of Clifton Village for something different, take in the striking Georgian architecture, and be sure to take a stroll along Bird Cage walk with its gothic cemetery. Grab some serious retail therapy in the shopping centres at Cabot Circus and Broadmead shopping centres; soak up the lively surroundings of the historic docks, and if you fancy a bit of culture there’s several interesting museums and art galleries in the city. For green and open spaces head for the Downs, or Brandon Hill Park with its famous Cabot Tower. For family fun go to At-Bristol Science Centre, the historic SS Great Britain, or Bristol Zoo Gardens. If you’ve a head for heights don’t miss the world famous Brunel Clifton Suspension Bridge, spanning the Avon Gorge and the River Avon. There’s heaps going on in Bristol, from live music and theatre to tours of Banksy’s street art, and even an annual balloon festival at Ashton Court on the outskirts of the city. An exciting day out for all ages!
