48 Hours In Bristol

On Tuesday and Wednesday of this week, myself and my family took a little trip up to Bristol. 

I love doing these posts, so I thought I’d share some photos from the trip, and talk through what we got up to. So the first place we stopped off at, was Clifton Suspension Bridge. It was so spectacular, and I have no idea how they managed to build it back in the 1800s. There was a hill next to the bridge itself, and it gave a brilliant view of the bridge and the surrounding land.

After staring at the suspension bridge and taking too many photos, we heading into Clifton town. I was so in awe of this little place, the buildings and shops were beautiful. So many cute independent shops and coffee shops. For lunch, we stopped in Coffee #1. I had a really yummy cheese and tomato toastie, and the atmosphere of the place was so chill. Would really recommend if you’re looking for somewhere cute to eat brunch or lunch.

At the end of the first day, we took a walk down to the harbour side. This is where a lot of the restaurants are, and of course the boats. For dinner we decided to go to Prezzo, purely because I mean, who doesn’t love pizza?! It was such a nice evening as well, which was perfect for photos!

I’d done some research on places for breakfast before we went, and I found a little place called ‘The Kitchen’. Its a cafĂ©, run by the YMCA and is located in the old fire station. Its got a lovely rustic interior is just really sweet. They had so many yummy things on the menu, and the cakes looked delicious. Both me and my mum went for the homemade granola, with yoghurt and strawberries. It was honestly the yummiest breakfast I’ve had in a long time. I’d highly recommend The Kitchen, it was so welcoming, and the food was brilliant. The rest of the day, we went to Cabot Circus and did some shopping. There was some flipping good shops, including Monki and Pull & Bear, so its safe to say I was happy haha. 

Overall, I really enjoyed my brief stay in Bristol. Clifton was beautiful, and the bridge was really cool to see. The shops were fab, and I think one of my favourite parts of the trip was the breakfast. I’m all about the food haha. Have you ever visited Bristol?
