After a lot of overseas travel recently we thought we should do a bit more around the UK and had a weekend in Bristol. We started the Saturday by trying one of the many cafés around town before heading to the start point for a walking tour. Unfortunately the guide was sick so there was no tour and we decided we would have to do our own tour. We checked out the Banksy mural on Park street before walking down to the Watershed where we jumped on a boat ride which took us around Bristol. We stopped off at the SS Great Britain of which we weren't expecting too much. We were pleasantly surprised though as it was really good with some amazing recreation of rooms, a good view of the rotting hull and a good level of information and history. We then headed for some local beer and mussels before taking a self guided tour around some of Banksy's work. We covered a bit of distance on our tour so afterwards headed to Zerodegrees a Bristol microbrewery. We tried a few different beers and then stumbled across an amazing and massive wine shop. We picked up some wine which we had in our amazing hotel looking over the harbour with the sun setting. Later we went out for dinner on the Glassboat - a restaurant on a docked boat. We then headed to a bar on another docked boat where we tried some beers from another microbrewery - Bristol Beer Factory. The next day we caught the bus up to Clifton where we had brunch in the very popular (and crammed) Primrose café. We then walked to the park here - the Clifton Downs where we got a good view of the huge suspension bridge before heading down to a cavern inside the cliff which had some good views across the gorge. We then headed back into town and did some shopping around the large department shops in Bristol before boarding the train back to London.
