Bristol to Bath n back!

by suvanki

Ok, thought I'd try here before I tackled railway timetables etc! I'm in Bristol for Work, Wed to Thurs next week. I've booked into Bristol Backpackers Hostel for Thurs night. Fri I'd like to see a bit of Bristol, then head to Bath, before returning to Temple Mead Station, to catch my train back to Sheffield.
How often are trains TM Bristol-> Bath, How much is a return ticket, and how long is the journey??

Also, any recommendations for meal/pub etc for single female to try Thur night.
Fri I'm thinking of exploring Clifton and Zoo, any better ideas??
Thanks in advance, Sue XX

Re: Bristol to Bath n back!

Hi,
www.thetrainline.com will be able to help with bris-bath info
- roughly 15 mins every 30 I seem to remember...

The waterfront along from the Watershed down (opposite backpackers) is pretty lively - nicer in the day than later on!
There's some good quieter 'proper' pubs on St. Michaels Hill (Highbury Vaults at the top is worth the climb!)

If you don't fancy the hills, round the corner from backpackers is King Street - there's several bars and restaurants but go to the Old Duke (jazz pub) and opposite the Llandoger Trow (allegedly inspiriation for the 'Admiral Benbow' in Treasure Island)

There's also a new place called Zero Degrees that I quite like - take the Christmas Steps up towards Perry Road. Its a microbrewery - bit trendy but does great food and beer.

I don't think much of the Zoo, better off going to the Suspension Bridge (have a pint in the Avon George Hotel) and up to the Downs(?!) if the weather's good, else the museum/art gallery is quite good and free...

Hi Bob, Thanks for your reply, Very useful info. I'll certainly try to get to at least some of your recommended places.
Thanks again, Sue.

Hello Sue:

While in Bath there are 2 places you might look into for a bite of lunch. For quaintness and history in the shadow of Bath Abbey Sally Lunn's is great. For good and inexpensive kebobs, try the Kabob House on King's Mead Square (a bit of a walk from the Abbey, but worth it!) Have fun.

Travel Tips for Bath

Warwick Castle!

by CandS

Go to Warwick Castle! It is really wonderful! We almost turned away when we saw the HUGE price (£9.75) to get inside but I'm glad we did go in.

We had a few hours wandering around inside the castle and through the rooms...it was great! This castle had the best set up we saw through all of Europe...it is a very tourist friendly place. :)

I loved the ghost story in the tower...it was very well done...

Prior Park Landscape Garden

by spidermiss

If you fancy an escape from the City Centre and the Tourist attractions, Prior Park Landscape & Gardens is ideal. It's a short bus ride from the City Centre. Prior Park Landscape & Gardens is a Green Park and you can only travel there either by foot or public transport with the exception of disabled travellers, who have to reserve a parking spot in advance with their registration details. Prior Park is renowned for its Palladian Bridge, one of four left in the world. I recommend a visit where you can enjoy the green space; admire the surrounding nature and enjoy a picnic by the lake.

The Pig and Fiddle

by graeme83 about Bars & Pubs

This is another traditional pub with probably the best food of the lot. There is a good menu (I remember kangaroo and osterich being on there) and a number of big screens for the rugby/football. Great atmosphere.

Gorgeous Italian

by annase about Il Tocco d’Italia

The food in this restaurant is gorgeous. The head chef graduated from a catering school in Sicily and has since worked in the very best hotels in the Caribbean, a resort in Bermuda and in Montreal, Canada. All the fresh pastas are prepared in house, according to recipes rarely found outside of Italy.

The restaurant is in a beautiful location, facing the Bath weir. They have seating outside on their balcony/terrace.

2-course Italian lunch for £9.95 and a 3-course £12.95.

Opening times:
Tue-Sat 12.00-2.30 lunch, 6.30-10.00 dinner
Sun 12.00-2.30 lunch
Closed on Mondays Portobello mushroom (starter)

Sally Lunn's House

Bath,...

Sally Lunn's House

Bath, England
Really old building serving allegedly traditional Bath Bun. Very cutsey but not too expensive and it's a mighty big bun. Enormous Sally Lunn bun with cinnamon + sugar with a big cuppa.
