Alternatively, if history isn’t your strong suit you can check out Bristol Zoo Gardens – the fifth oldest zoo in the world!

Take a walk around Bristol Museum and Art Gallery, take some photos of the Clifton Suspension Bridge or why not take a walking tour of Banksy’s art that’s scattered around the city.
With lots going on throughout the year such as various food, music and arts festivals whichever time of year you come there’ll always be something going on in this city. Bristol’s shopping is second to none as you explore Cabot Circus that even has its very own Harvey Nichols store. Once you’ve finished with these shops why not discover some of Bristol’s finest independent shops on Park Street, Gloucester Road or Wapping Wharf to name just a few places you can head to! For the higher-end boutiques try Clifton village and take a stroll as you dip in and out of these shops, eventually finding yourself in one of The Ivy’s restaurant and bar branches.

Another classy affair brings you Cocktail Making in Bristol. This special event is something new and exciting where you can finally learn how to make that strawberry daquiri or cosmopolitan you love so much! This class is taught by a professional mixologist who’ll show you the ins and outs of cocktail making.
If you’re after something a bit cheekier then why not try out Nude Life drawing or Burlesque Dancing for something a bit different to make the day unforgettable! Bristol Nude Life Drawing will see you and the girls sit in a semi-circle whilst the male model de-robes and assumes his position at the front of the class. Hold back the giggles whilst you attempt to draw everything you see in front of you!
A meal out with the girls is the perfect way to sit down, relax and catch up as you sink your teeth into some delicious food at a great Restaurant. From two-course to three-course meals and a range of different cuisines to choose from, you’re truly spoilt for choice.
For the wackier and crazier bride-to-be try Bubble Mayhen in Bristol that has you in giant inflatable zorb balls and sees you flying off down the pitch as you bump and bounce off each other playing football or queen of the ring!
Try a Bristol School Sports Day that’ll see you all in fits of giggles as you run with bean bags on your head to the finish line for first place, or struggle to keep up with a balancing game of egg and spoon! Get into teams and compete for first place like you did in school. Even come in that classic P.E. kit look for the perfect photo opportunity.

We had a fabulous time doing this activity. The dance instructor was fabulous and the staff at venue were very friendly. I will recommend Polestars to anyone who wants to experience this.
Really good, knowledgeable staff
Really good customer service, very friendly staff. Very impressed.
Staff went above and beyond to make sure it was as memorable as possible. If I could give more stars, I would.
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.
