The best places to eat in Bristol

Now you have a place to stay, it is time to explore. While in the city centre, if you fancy a shopping trip, Cabot Circus is home to over 130 of your favourite stores, including Harvey Nichols. It also boasts a wide selection of Britain’s beloved eateries, such as TGI Fridays, Zizzi, as well as Nandos.

However, if you are looking to dine a little more upmarket, Bristol is home to many delicious independent restaurants. If you are a fan of Italian, located on Park Street is MoltoBuono!, offering authentic Italian dishes. Yet, if tapas is more your thing, Bravas offers the best Spanish cuisine right on Cotham Hill. There is also an abundance of coffee shops and bakeries, such as Pinkmans Bakery, right by Wills Memorial Building, and Fed, with two locations in Cotham and Gloucester Road.  In the evening, White Lion in Clifton Village is the perfect setting for a sunset drink, overlooking the stunning Avon Gorge and the famous Clifton Suspension Bridge.

Things to do in Bristol

If, however, taking a walk to the viewpoints on Clifton Downs is not your thing, there are many galleries and museums to browse, such as the Royal West of England Academy (RWA), exhibiting regularly updated art. Or how about a visit to science museum We The Curious, offering hands-on exhibits to explore? Bristol is also home to M Shed, a museum exhibiting the city’s extensive history and its people, all from within a 1950s dockside transit shed. How very Bristol.

Bristol is also home to some of the most renowned nightlife the UK has to offer. From a night out on the triangle with plenty of clubs to choose from, like Gravity or La Rocca, to Motion, voted 11th best club in the world according to DJ Magazine, or even Crofter’s Rights in Stokes Croft for some of the best live music the city has to offer, there options are endless.

So, whether you fancy having a chilled weekend, potentially at the Clifton Lido, an activity-filled trip, including a visit to Bristol’s aquarium or Hippodrome, or are visiting to experience some of the best nightlife the country has to offer, Bristol is the place for you.
