Clifton Down, Bristol, Somerset

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 visit the Clifton Observatory, Camera Obscura and Cave for the best views of the city and Clifton Suspension Bridge. There’s a very relaxed, though small café on the Downs for drinks and light lunches
