Clifton Down, Bristol, Somerset
Clifton Down is one of Bristol’s open green spaces where people go for picnics, walks, sports and events. It’s a good way to escape the hustle and bustle of the city streets, and if you take the kids to Sion Hill they can let off steam in the play area. You can see the Avon Gorge where peregrine falcons nest and something you must do if you have time visit the Clifton Observatory where you can see a working Victorian Camera Obscura and the Giant's Cave; there's a cafe with a rooftop terrace which has incredible views of the city and Clifton Suspension Bridge. There’s also a very relaxed, though small café on the Downs for drinks and light lunches.
