I must say that I really like Bristol, we have been stopping over on the way to and from Devon and we all enjoy walking round the city and playing in the squares on the waterfront.
On our last visit we were in the car without the Kentucky so stayed at the Travelodge (cheap, no surprises chain of hotels) near the Aquarium and Science Museum, this is a great spot as everything is walking distance. And the staff now recognise us!
We have by no means explored it all but we enjoyed playing in Millennium square (a giant mirrored globe and many water features, which child can resist it?), interacting in At Bristol, the science museum (we’ve been twice now, it is a completely interactive experience and this is where Reuben got his love for animation from), looking at the beautiful fish in the Aquarium (beautifully kept, a really lovely aquarium but small, pricey and with not much interactive activities for the children, keeping this in mind I’d still recommend it), finding all the customised statues of Gromit scattered round the city centre, gazing at Brunel’s SS Great Britain (a museum ship and former passenger steamship which was the longest passenger ship in the world from 1845 to 1854), crossing the Clifton Suspension bridge, and simply enjoying the city (with its unexpected fountains) with our friends.
