Enjoying The Sights...
Bristol was an industrial town even during WW II hence it was bombed heavily & much of it's attractions were lost in the war; Hence many of its attractions now have been rebuilt & painstakingly retained its charm so many buildings look new...
For me, I just like that !
Another sight was the photo that you could see on the left. Lovely windows !
The name says The Granary, could be the name of this building...
Clifton area of Bristol and...
Clifton area of Bristol and the Royal York Crescent. The crescent is a half circle of georgian houses built when Clifton was a village and not actually a part of Bristol. The White Lion is a pub overlooking the Avon Gorge and has a balcony type garden which is extremely pleasant to sit in summer. Clifton has many art, antiques and deli shops which unusual and expensive gifts can be found.
Artists' "Front Room" Events
Bristol is slowly developing a reputation for quirky, underground art. For example, there are a small number of groups who unnofficially occupy empty buildings and turn them into art galleries. In addition, a number of artist communities hold annual events to open their homes and studios to the public.
For example, Totterdown (a colourful hilltop community near Bristol Temple Meads station) has held a weekend "Front Room" event every November since 2001. Over 40 houses, pubs and churches host art exhibitions in this small area. You can walk around the small terrraced houses, though lounges, kitchens and sometimes bedrooms too! In 2006 an artist, Gerry King, claimed to have the smallest gallery in the world, the 306 Gallery @ M673 OMO. This was in fact the registration of his car, a Peuguot 306!
Also in November a similar event is held in North Bristol.
Centrally located and starting to get popular.With lots of different themed nights.Popular with students , especially on Mondays The relaxed dress code throughout the week and into the weekend emphasises its concentration on the clubbing concept
Las Iguanas, Bristol
Las Iguanas is a chain of Mexican (they say South American) restaurants in Britain. They serve average quality food, and have a pretty good range of meat and vegetarian dishes. The wine and beer lists are also good. This restaurant is near the quayside clubs of Bristol, so would be a fine place to dine before a night out, provided the perils of Mexican cuisine don't trouble you too much.
It cost £25 for starter, main, beer, and a bottle of wine (between 3). Patatas Bravas are as good as any I've had in Spain or elsewhere. Hard to mess up, but I've seen it done.
