The west country games were brilliant. Would recommend for any hen/stag party as they keep you laughing from start to finish.

Local Celebs

Bristol has some fantastic celebs hailing from this city. From famous pirates to famous actors why not see if you can spot where they lived – or still live today!

Although you may not be able to spot the ever-elusive Banksy, his artwork is dotted around Bristol’s streets for everyone to access. Why not take a walking tour and see all his work in one go.

Some well-known artists and bands come from Bristol such as Massive Attack and Portishead.

A little-known fact is that the voice of Darth Vader was not the body we saw in the films! David Prowse was the actor whilst James Earl Jones was the voice. This iconic duo wouldn’t have made Darth Vader possible without one another!

Although these aren’t local celebs, we think it’s pretty cool that Bristol has been the backdrop for some popular films and TV shows, including Sherlock Holmes, Only Fools and Horses, Skins and The Young Ones. See if you can spot any streets that look familiar from the TV!

No matter what cuisine, vibe or area you’re after for your next bite to eat, Bristol has some amazing cafes, restaurants and pop up shops for you to discover.

There are lots of street food markets, with one marketing being veggie only (!), to farmer’s markets and of course a varied mix of different cuisines and flavours to enjoy. Why not head to St Nicholas Market or The Harbourside Market for your next fix.

If style and sophistication is something you’re looking for there are a range of Michelin star restaurants in this city to include Casamia, Paco Tapas, The Pony and Trap, Bulrush, or Wilks. Make sure you book in early to avoid disappointment!

For that mid-afternoon slump as you’re exploring the city why not head for an Afternoon Tea in Bristol and taste a range of delicate savoury and sweet treats. Alternatively, if you’re in the mood for a quick bite to eat in a café then you’ve got to head to Pinkmans. This bakery is renowned in the city as they bake and serve everything fresh on-site. It’s up to you whether you want to dine in or take-away as you browse the shops.

Once the evening falls on this city, the perfect event to do is Cocktail Making in Bristol to get the girls together, having some fun and sipping away on a drink or two! If cocktails aren’t you’re thing why not head into the Bristol Cider Shop or The Apple for some fine West Country cider.

You can head to different areas in this city and get a whole different vibe for your night out. If you’re in The Waterside (Harbour) area you’ll find a range of bars and clubs such as Pitcher & Piano, Steinbeck & Shaw and PRYZM. Millennium Square area will bring you Slug and Lettuce, Las Iguanas and loose Cannon – a fab cocktail bar.
Whereas Frogmore Street hosts the o2 Academy and Basement 45, a brilliant club to party the night away in. This is just a few of the amazing bars and clubs on offer in Bristol, so decide what vibe you’d like, or head to one area on one night and another on a different night! After all, why not?
Bristol has something going on every month, week and day of the year! So whichever season you decide to come to this lovely city you’re spoilt for choice with things to do. Sit in one of Bristol’s amazing green spaces in the summer and enjoy The Downs as you watch kids play games, groups of friends have picnics and families taking a stroll.
Alternatively, if you’re arriving in winter, Bristol’s Christmas markets are something to be marvelled at – get some Christmas shopping in at these independent shops and find something that no one else has!
Bristol has a fantastic cycle system so there’s no excuse not to hop on a bike and get going! With plenty of rental bikes dotted around the city, you can get from A to B with ease. There’s even a cycle path on a disused railway line from Bristol to Bath if you fancy exploring the neighbouring town of Bath!
Of course, public transport is readily available in this city – with buses connecting the entire city you can get where you need to go with no problem. After your night out and you’re wanting to get back to your accommodation quickly there are a number of taxi companies available for you to call, or head to a taxi rank and hail one down.
