What To Do In Bristol
Spend the afternoon at Bristol Lido. The outdoor swimming pool is heated throughout the year and non-members can book a two-hour slot to use the facilities, which include a sauna, steam room and hot tub.
For the best of independent shops, head to Gloucester Road in the north of the city. The Bohemian shopping area has everything from interiors to wine shops, with plenty of cafés and bars for when you need a pitstop. With the whole area covered in graffiti, keep your eyes peeled for some of Banksy’s best known pieces.
If you’d rather do some exploring and enjoy a walk, visit Clifton Downs and the Observatory located next to the Suspension Bridge. Dating back to the 18th century, visit the ancient ruins that run underneath the observatory and into the Avon Gorge. Then head into Clifton Village itself to explore the antique shops.
