What an incredible place our wonderful city of Bristol is to explore in the Summer.
Here are the top 10 best things to do in Bristol this Summer:
Open Air Yoga overlooking Bristol
Join the fantastic Jade of @yoganandyoga for an open-air yoga session on the private Berkeley crescent overlooking the beautiful Wills Memorial Building. The class is often followed by cocktails in the Secret Garden at The Square Club, Bristol’s Private Members Club.
From outside the Bristol Visitor Centre, hop on the ferry and take in the views of Bristol from the water. With the sun shining, you can imagine yourself anywhere! Hope off at the SS Great Britain and soak up some Bristol History.
Have a picnic on Brandon Hill
Grab some delicious take out pizza and cocktails from Pizza on the Park and then take the 5-minute walk up to the top of Brandon Hill. Take in the incredible views across Bristol and tuck in!
Explore the Deer Park at Ashton Court
Just over the Suspension Bridge, you will find Ashton Court. With views overlooking Bristol, there are stunning walks meandering through the deer park where you can look out for the red and fallow deer. There are some beautiful picnic spots and a lovely café where you can grab some delicious food. If you fancy doing something a little more active, there is also a Foot Golf Site at the top of the estate!
Try out Paddleboarding on the Harbour
What better way to explore the harbourside than on the water itself! Float along the glittering waters and get that holiday feeling. Grab some refreshing drinks after from one of the many harbourside bars.
Make your own Bristol Meadow Flower Bouquet
Tucked away in The Secret Garden, the hidden away terrace at The Square Club, join florists Jasper+Quinn to make your own Bouquet made of beautiful in-season British blooms. Enjoy some bubbles or cocktails whilst you let out your creative side. Make the evening extra special by staying to enjoy a delicious meal from the award-winning Square Kitchen, with all dishes made using the best locally sourced produce. The perfect summer activity, or gift experience!
Take a trip to Beeses
If you fancy travelling slightly out of Bristol, head to the secret spot of Beeses. Take the scenic route via ferry and enjoy a refreshing beer by the river.
Have an Open Air Swim at The Bristol Lido
This stunning Victorian Lido is the perfect place for a relaxing swim, followed by a dip in the Jacuzzi. There are some amazing dine and swim packages on offer, along with massage and swim options. Be sure to book in advance, as you can imagine, it is incredibly popular!
Take a plunge in Clevedon Marine Lake
This is one not for the faint-hearted. The Clevedon Marine Lake is filled by the tides, and really gives you a taste of the seaside, whilst only being 20 minutes from Bristol city centre. If the weather is warm and clear, be sure to go in the evening as you get the most beautiful sunsets. You can even get some fish and chips to enjoy whilst you dry off.
Explore the caves at The Bristol Suspension Bridge
You would never know that there are hidden caves meandering under the cliffs at the Suspension Bridge. Head to the observatory and delve deep into the cliffs for a different view over the gorge. For nature lovers, look out for the nesting Peregrine Falcons!
