WHAT TO DO
THE M SHED
Princes Wharf, Wapping Rd, Bristol, BS1 4RN
The M Shed museum is a time capsule nestled in the heart of Bristol. It’s packed with treasures from its industrial and maritime
past. Aside from the permanent exhibits, M Shed boasts an enviable events schedule including behind the scenes tours, boat
trips on a 1935 diesel tug and even the chance to ride in a steam crane on the dockside. Best of all, it’s free!
WHERE TO STAY
Brooks Guesthouse Bristol, St Nicholas Street, Bristol, BS1 1UB
Bristol’s eccentric side comes to life at boutique B&B with a difference, Brooks Guesthouse. The rooms have been lovingly
refurbished – but for those seeking something less traditional, you can stay in a ‘retro rocket’ caravan on the roof. Expect free range
local produce for breakfast, cooked up in front of you in the open plan kitchen. It’s right next to St Nicholas Market,
so make sure you pop down to sample the vibrant mix of stalls.
WHERE TO EAT
LIDO BRISTOL RESTAURANT
Oakford Place, Clifton, Bristol, BS8 2BJ
Feast on a subtly smoky mix of Mediterranean and Middle Eastern cuisine cooked in wood fired ovens. Sample local, seasonal
produce – much of it grown in its own kitchen garden. Overlook a dramatically lit pool vista from the comfort of a Grade II listed
Victorian building. Need we say anymore? Head over to Bristol Lido Restaurant for a truly unique dining experience.
WHERE TO DRINK
THE MILK THISTLE
Quay Head House, Colston Ave, Bristol, BS1 1EB
This is a cocktail lover’s dream. The menu at this Prohibition style bar is a creative masterpiece, with artful concoctions ranging
from the ‘Coffin Dodger’ with Death’s Door Gin to ‘Cold Gold’ – a tequila based pick-me-up infused with cocoa liqueur. Shamelessly
unconventional, The Milk Thistle has earnt its reputation as one of Bristol’s best kept secrets. It’s concealed inside one of the city’s
finest historic buildings giving it an air of exclusive decadence. One for the discerning drinker.
WHAT NOT TO MISS
Brandon HIll Park, Great George St, Harbourside, Bristol, BS1 5RR
Cabot Tower is well recognised as an indispensable feature of the Bristol skyline. Crowning the summit of Brandon Hill Park, it provides
a rewarding walk and brilliant views. Start by exploring the park, which features a nature reserve, children’s play area and numerous
beautiful paths. When you reach the tower, climb the spiral staircase to enjoy panoramic views over the city.
