A day in Bristol

Earlier this week, I had a couple of meetings in Bristol, so thought I’d take the opportunity to explore the city a little bit. Despite its close proximity to Bath (just 15 minutes on the train), Bristol feels like a world away.

After my first meeting, I stopped off for a mid-morning pot of tea at the aptly named Brew.

Saying that, I think their main focus is coffee. But they still served up a great pot of tea.

And it wouldn’t be right to stop for a tea without indulging in some kind of cake or other, would it?

Mmmm, a droolworthy chocolate-orange brownie. Gooey and delicious.

The place was lovely, the staff were super friendly and their brunch menu looked AMAZING. I’ll definitely be bringing Alex back for a weekend feast.

After all that brownie scoffing, I decided to stretch my legs and visit a part of Bristol that I’d never been to before. The Clifton Suspension Bridge.

Designed by Brunel in 1864, it spans the River Avon, connecting Bristol to North Somerset. I have to say, it’s a pretty impressive sight.

After I’d ogled the bridge for quite a while, I wandered back through town.

Via the beautiful Brandon Hill and past the Cabot Tower (which we climbed on our first visit to Bristol all those months ago!).

And into the city centre.

I stopped off for a quick lunch at Edna’s Kitchen. An unassuming little place near the river, it serves the most fantastic falafel pittas.

Which is exactly what I had!

Messy, wholesome and thoroughly delicious.

I headed to my next meeting via the beautiful Queen Square.

And then walked by the river, back to Temple Meads and back to Bath.

Bristol, you were a delight. We’ll be back soon!
