Last minute free weekend and don’t know where to go?
Head to Victoria Station and hop on a bus to Bristol!
There are few National Express buses per day and the journey is around 2 hours and a half.
Even when it comes to a short weekend, I am usually happier to take the first cheap flight and get anywhere in Europe.
However, Bristol was a revelation and I would visit it again.
This lively city on the south west of England, home town of the most famous street artist of the world Banksy, attract visitors from all the globe in search of his priceless graffiti.
But, before going on murales hunt, you need to explore the city centre!
Shops, cafes, restaurants,cinemas: you will be spoiled by choices.
Make sure to pay a visit to the Clifton Suspension Bridge to enjoy amazing views from both sides. You don’t have to pay a fee to cross it on foot.
When it comes to night-life, the place to be is the harbour side.
You can enjoy a drink or two in one of the many places along the river and then you can have dinner in an actual floating pub!
On the following morning, we decided to explore Cheltenham road considered the cool/grunge part of the city.
We were looking for a place for breakfast and we stumbled across this amazing cafè called The Bristolian which is actually considered one of the top 3.
Now that your belly is full, it’s time to head to the Bristol Museum and Art Gallery.
At the entrance you will find a sculpture with a small Banksy contribution.
It’s almost time to go home but you can’t leave Bristol without admiring one of his most famous murales which is the “Naked man hanging from window”.
What a discover Bristol, hopefully I will see you soon enough!
