What's on in Bristol this Summer?
With the Summer Holidays fast approaching, we have compiled a short list of our recommendations of things to do in Bristol throughout July & August. There are many fun events & activities taking place in the city that are great for the whole family, so why not visit?
Bristol City Museum and Art Gallery
You will not be short of things to do in the Bristol City Museum and Art Gallery. There are many rooms to explore, from impressive artwork to the dinosaur section. This experience will leave both you and your kids inspired. If your child is under 7, we recommend that you visit the ‘under 7s area’ where many a creepy story is told, pots are made and young actors may be born.
