What to do while staying overnight in the city centre ?
From art galleries and music venues to museums and harbours, Bristol is one place where you can be sure to find something to enjoy regardless of when you visit, or who you visit with. One of the places you have to head to the moment you arrive here is the Cabot Tower which provides wonderful views of the city.
From here, you can make your way to the harbour and have fun paddling around in a kayak as you also sightsee. If it’s all warm and sunny and you just need to cool down before heading to a B&B’s venue, the Portishead Open Air Pool can also be a great spot to stop by.
Optionally, you can choose to go to Bristol Zoo in the Clifton area which is on the western side of Bristol city centre. Here, you can watch zoo animals, and have a lot of fun especially if you are out with your kids. This city is also home to some of the country’s finest shopping areas; so, if you are hoping to find a piece of artwork, some vintage clothes or a memento to take back home, you will definitely not be disappointed.
The Mall at Cribbs Causeway is one center you can go to for some serious shopping considering that it houses over 100 brand stores. Cabot Circus has even more of these and other than the shops, you will also find nice restaurants and cafes here. So, even if you can’t seem to find any cheap hotels to have a drink and a meal, you can still get what you need at Cabot Centre. Clifton Village and St Nicholas Market are some of the other shopping venues you might want to check out during your trip.
Budget Places to Stay – Hotel or b&b room
Other than its wonderful attractions, this city has some amazingly cheap hotels and bed and breakfast venues and the good thing is that despite their affordability, the services offered are not sub-standard.
A good selection of the hotels and bed and breakfast spots have family rooms, roof gardens, bars, and hot tubs that you can take advantage of during your stay and while some of the B&B properties are right at the city centre, others are in the surrounding villages.
Therefore, depending on your budget and the sort of experience you are after, you can choose to stay in the heart of the town in any of the hotels with family rooms, or go further away where you can get to enjoy the serene and lush countryside.
Popular is also staying for the night or a weekend in a furnished apartment to rent.
Zoo in Clifton area BS8 3HA
Old zoo opened in the 19th Century where you can see plenty of animals and and there lots of things to do. The gardens are very pretty as well. Good value for money and a wonderful day out for the whole family.
