Things to do

-Family attractions: The At-Bristol Science Centre will appeal to children of all ages. Conveniently located in the city centre, the science centre offers lots of interactive exhibits, a planetarium, and dozens of events through the year. There are 400 species of animals to see at the Bristol Zoo Gardens. The 12-acre zoo is famously home to a family of gorillas and has an area where visitors can feed parrots. Another great family-friendly attraction is Bristol Aquarium, which displays live exhibits representing underwater habitats from around the world.

-Golf: Holidaymakers staying in a Bristol apartment have a range of golf courses to choose from. The 18-hole parkland course at Bristol Golf Club is easy to reach and offers modest green fees along with great views of the Severn Estuary. Bristol & Clifton Golf Club has a well-regarded 18-hole course with an inviting 19th-century clubhouse. Tee times can be booked online for added convenience. The Kendleshire Golf Club offers a challenging course with water features and lots of different pay-and-play packages for visitors.

-Historic sites: The Clifton Suspension Bridge is among the most recognisable features of Bristol. Spanning the picturesque Avon Gorge, the bridge is 150 years old and boasts a great visitors' centre that offers free tours on weekends. Holidaymakers can drive, cycle, or walk across the bridge at their leisure. For those interested in maritime history, the SS Great Britain is an excellent place to visit. When it was constructed in the mid-19th century, it was the fastest and largest ship in the world. Today it provides a fascinating look into seafaring life from the 1840s to the 1930s.

-Culture: The Bristol City Museum and Art Gallery is the city’s must-see cultural attraction. The city also plays host to a number of major cultural events and festivals throughout the year.

We stayed there for a birthday party weekend and it was great fun. We did eat out one night at the Willy Wicket, which was very near and easily walked, and lovely food. Catering for 12 was easy at the farmhouse, everything we needed was there. It as great fun.
