Bristol

The capital of the West Country, Bristol is vibrant, culturally rich, brimming with history and packed with things to do – we love it. The Sunday Times gave weight to such much-deserved praise by naming it the Best City to Live in Britain in 2014. It’s a conclusion easily arrived at when you consider the architecture of Isambard Kingdom Brunel and his famous Suspension Bridge, Banksy in all his barmy brilliance, the annual Balloon Fiesta at Ashton Court and the historic docks where the Harbour Festival is held and the SS Great Britain rests. It’s a city that even has its very own currency!

Where better to spend the Bristol Pound than in the city’s numerous restaurants, pubs and cafés. There is unbelievable variety here. Bristol proudly boasts Michelin-starred Casa Mia, stalwart of the local scene Riverstation, the Cowshed with it fine steaks, eco-friendly Bordeaux Quay and the award-winning Thali Cafés. Bustling and bohemian Gloucester Road is a melting pot of different cuisine types, from the Caribbean flavours of Plantation to the tasty tapas of Bell’s Diner. Clifton village is also great stomping ground for foodies, with its plethora of independent cafés and restaurants, including favourites The Clifton Sausage and The Albion. Bristol export Pieminister serves its famous pies from St Nicholas Market, where proof, if proof is needed, can be found that Bristol has a booming street food scene. The market is the perfect place to sample a huge array of international delicacies and delights. Add to this a crazy-busy calendar of food festivals and events, and you have a city made for food lovers.
