Bristol Things to Do
Here is my sister in front of a stand selling sassafras, which is root beer with a light licorice flavor...delicious! The food here is great...veggie tempura, portobellow sandwiches and pasta, artichokes, cheese fritters, Cornish pasties, gelato, ice creme crepes, etc. Come hungry!
Here a wood nymph (yes, a real person in heavy costume!) investigates an intruder. The many people they hire here are excellent actors and stay in character as they wander about the park. Besides that, about half of the faire-goers come in costume--elaborate Renaissance outfits complete with hat, dagger, etc. Great people-watching!
I'd never had a bow in my hand until I went here for my birthday this year, and it was fabulous! I felt just like Legolas the Elf...except with worse aim, and considerably less good-looking. :)
