#5 To Add A Bit of Colour Back To Your Life
We think it’s fair to say we’ve been living in the darkness of our living rooms for far too long. The brightest thing which we’ve seen in months was that beautiful garden in LA where Oprah interviewed Harry & Meghan (sad times). Even I’m A Celeb wasn’t in sunny Oz.
But back to Bristol… on a sunny day, take a stroll and soak up the vibrant architecture, colourful houses, blooming epic greenery and enjoy all the fun going on around you. That’s the kind of colour we all need to see this summer.
#6 To Day Trip
Staying for a little longer? It certainly makes perfect sense if you have a car. Hop on the road and within a short drive, you can be at some of these epic places.
What was once a pop-up on the North West corner of Bristol is now soon to become the new home to Bristol Zoo Gardens in 2022. Check. It. Out.
If shopping all over the city hasn’t left you with bunions and in need of a spa day, let the marathon continue at The Mall at Cribbs Causeway and the surrounding retail parks.
Oh, how we do love to be beside the seaside.
Debatably the UK’s best safari park. The animals must be feeling pretty lonely, but we think a visit from you might help perk them up.
Book a lunch date in the Roman City of Bath. Rekindle some of the romance potentially lost from 12 months of pointless arguments over boring household stuff.
A little further along the M4 you will find the home of the Marquess and Marchioness of Lansdown. Ideal if you need to try and wear out the sprogs.
Also worth noting that if you book to stay with us direct, we’ll always offer FREE parking where we can.
#7 To Cycle
Despite everything else going on, right outside Your Apartment HQ and across the city, Bristol City Council has been plowing on with their ambitions to make Bristol the cycling capital of the UK.
They have been proactively installing new cycle lanes, crossings and traffic lights joining up the main routes across the city.
In case you were wondering, at Your Apartment – Clifton Village we have FREE secure bike storage for guests who wish to bring their own set of wheels with them.
#8 To Embrace Culture in the Flesh
That right – no more relying on The Crown or the daily news briefing to try and feel like you are a part of something. Come to Bristol and embrace the way of life.
If you’re wondering what the culture is like in Bristol, imagine being free to be whoever you want to be, wherever you want to be it. That’s the kind of place we are or at least trying our hardest to become!
…but for crying out loud, try not to topple any statues on your trip. We’re yet to see the consequences of such a bold move. But good riddance Mr Colston!
#9 To Scoot
Last year, the city had its first delivery of Voi Scooters. They are available all over the city, even in places you might not expect.
All you need is a smartphone, a driving license and you’re off. And when you are bored just jump off and get on with the next part of your day.
