Famous for boats, balloons and Banksy - Bristol is packed full of things to see and do for an unforgettable (and affordable) weekend getaway with your guy - or girl gang.  

To explore the very best of what Bristol has to offer, we’ve put together a quick guide of places you should definitely visit while you’re in this creative, eclectic city. A weekend may not seem long, so we’d recommend arriving on Friday afternoon and heading home (not that you’ll want to leave) on Sunday afternoon - to get the most out of the city in a short amount of time.  

Let’s start with a fabulous Friday evening, hosted by The Florist.

Friday Evening | Sip and Savour Cocktails at The Florist

After a long day of travelling, and having a first glimpse of Bristol, we’d recommend letting your hair down for some Friday night drinks… The people of Bristol party from dawn 'til dusk at more music festivals than you can count on two hands, and has a city centre that’s full of pubs and clubs playing upcoming artists.

So, where do you go for the chilled beats and the best cocktails? The Florist, of course.  

With floral-themed interiors, a long list of beautifully fragrant cocktails to sip and savour, and a talented line up of DJ's and musicians playing throughout the night - we have everything covered for a Friday night in Bristol.

We’ve also updated our drinks menu with brand new cocktails inspired by floristry and influenced by sass! With new choices like the Elderflower Sake Spirit, Matcha Mai Tai and White Moss Negroni - The Florist is your go-to destination for cocktails you won't forget about anytime soon...

An Afternoon in Bristol | Our Guide

Trying to find Banksy street art? Take a tour with graffiti experts ‘Where the Wall’ in the coolest areas of Bristol to search out Banksy’s first murals. Or, go at your own pace using the handy (and free) downloadable Banksy Bristol Trail app.

For a dip into Bristol’s maritime history, visit the iconic SS Great Britain. This famous ship was designed and built by Brunel, and was wonderfully restored in the floating harbour for visitors to climb aboard and step back in time.  

If you’re an animal lover, the beautiful Bristol Zoo Gardens are a lovely place to wander and take in nature. Or, maybe you’d prefer to check out Cabot Circus? Bristol’s unique shopping quarter, packed with brands, bargains and one-off boutiques right in the centre of Bristol.  

An evening in Bristol isn’t complete without a visit to the Bristol Old Vic historic playhouse.
