Thinking of coming to Bristol!

by wigsa

Hi everyone.

Me and a few friends are contemplating heading to Bristol for 5 or 6 nights in May while we dhave time off from rugby before preseason starts.We're attracted to Bristol because we can get there for 8 euro each way and understand budget accommodation is plentiful.We've also heard great things about the nightlife there,which is the main reason why we'd go.

Can anyone shed some light on the nightlife in the city,and what it will be like at this time of the year?Can people also recommend their top 3 things to do during the day in the city,as I'd like to get a variety of opinions on how we should pass our time in Bristol.

Thanks in advance,and any input is appreciated.

I'm not sure budget accommodation is any more plentiuful in Bristol than anywhere else in the UK, to be honest, but you will find all Bristol accommodation listed on the official tourist information site here:

You'll find tips and info about what to see/do in Bristol all writtten by Vt locals and members on the VT Bristol pages (use the searchbox top right of this page to find them), as well as on the official website I linked above.

Can't help with nightlife, sorry...but (as with the rest of the UK) I don't think the time of year will make much difference to what is going on.

One of the very top attractions in Bristol during the day is the SS Great Britain - it's a must if you visit the city.

Seeing Clifton Suspension Bridge is also very worthwhile.

As for the third thing, I think I would just walk around the docks (you can take in the SS Great Britain that way too) and see all that Maritime Bristol has to offer.

Travel Tips for Bristol

Tourist info centres

by diocletianvs

Bristol has no less than five (!) Tourist information centres. They are located at Harbourside (@ Centre), City centre (Colston Avenue), at Broadmead (Shopping centre), Clifton (Bristol City Museum) and Temple Meads (British Empire Museum).

I visited one at Harbourside - they had the usual selection of free maps, brochures and leaflets as well as some small souvenirs. Bristol Guide and Bristol Pocket Guide are free brochures where you can find the essential tourist info about Bristol.

General info can be found online at One of the things that is excellent in Bristol are tourist signposts that are located throughout the city, pointing to major points of tourist interest. Posts are well designed, always displaying the map of the surrounding area as well as arrows pointing in directions of surrounding sites.

Inside The Galleries there is...

by pollon

Inside The Galleries there is the yummy Food Street, at the second floor if I don't remember wrong... here you can have a nice meal choosing among the multiethnic food stalls or have a coffe or something more like this... but I won't repeat what I have written in my food travelogue... I know I'm naughty to push you to go to my travelogue... sorry... ;-) If you don't want to go to the travelogue, I shortly explain here too: it's a chocolate fudge temptation

40 minutes south of Bristol,...

by CarolynShort

40 minutes south of Bristol, visit Cheddar Gorge. Home of Cheddar Cheese! Small picturesque village in the narrow gorge, with show caves (7GBP entrance), numerous souvenir shops, cheese-making museum, and quaint cafes for traditional cream teas.

Weekday Drinks With Toddlers/Kids

by marilynmondoe about Tabacco Factory

The Tabacco Factory is a large foodie bar with a local theatre attached that attracts a lovely crowd in the week.

As well as having a kiddie friendly area inside, it also has a large patio garden out the back.

The bar has a lovely laid back atmosphere and offers great nibbles and food.

My only complaint is that its in South Bristol(I live North!)
I also went on a saturday night and the 'lads' were out in full force! so depending on the day you have a different vibe going on. I definitely prefer the working week crowd.

They also do a food/bricabrac market in the car park every third sunday of the month.

Cheap pub lunch in luxurious surroundings

by illumina about Wetherspoons - The Commercial Rooms

This Wetherspoon pub is the former Bristol Commercial Rooms, a gentlemen's club and meeting place for the city's merchants, built in 1811. It's a lovely building and worth visiting for the architecture alone.

Wetherspoons is a chain, and therefore you will find the same menu in most locations, which means that at least you know what to expect. The food is cheap, and I've always found it to actually be very good. They do nice burgers, and things like lasagne and chilli are worth a try too. A meal usually costs between £5-10.
