One of the many things we love about living in Bristol is its proximity to so many gorgeous locations for day trips. You only need to drive for 45-minutes to (technically) be in a new country, Wales! If you’re here for a short time, there is plenty to see and do in Bristol but if you want to escape the city for a scenic day trip you also have plenty of options. PREMIER SUITES serviced apartments in Bristol are perfectly located for onward travel or to explore the surrounding city.
If you’re looking for a trip to the sea, look no further than one of the original seaside towns, Weston-Super-Mare. It is not only full of Victorian history, there are miles and miles of glorious golden beaches and the stunning Weston Grand Pier gives you fantastic views of the ocean. There are often carnivals, festivals and family-fun events along the seafront through the year so make sure you time your Bristol day trip well.
Bath is an idyllic English city, known for its Roman-built baths. Because of its rich culture and history, it was very deservingly made a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1987. Bath is easy to navigate and its highlights can easily be seen within a day without rushing. Some of the most popular attractions include the gorgeous Abbey, beautiful architecture, Jane Austen attractions for literary lovers and the impressive botanicals gardens to name a few. Bath is just 10-minutes by train from your accommodation in Bristol, and the train station is approximately 10-minutes from PREMIER SUITES.
One for the more adventurous among us next with a day trip to the Cotswolds Water Park. If you love the water and would like to try your hand at paddle-boarding, canoeing or kayaking, this is definitely the place for you. The Cotswold Water Park is an area of 40 square miles, with more than 150 lakes so even if you’re not adventurous, the scenery alone will take your breath away. You can arrange a fishing trip, golf and horse riding, or just relax and enjoy the view in one of the many cafes and restaurants in the area.
Have you ever felt the excitement of a safari trip? Forget travelling to some exotic tropical country, we have one less than an hour from PREMIER SUITES serviced apartments in Bristol! Britain’s number one safari experience, Longleat Safari Park, allows you to see animals you would never get to see in the wild such as lions, tigers and giraffes. You can drive in your own car or hop on a specially designed bus, built to withstand the mischievous monkeys in their enclosure. You can also enjoy the beautiful stately home, Longleat House as well as mazes, boat cruises and other great attractions.
Being one of the wonders of the world, Stonehenge should be everyone’s bucket list. Just over an hour from your accommodation in Bristol lies one of the most impressive prehistoric monuments in the UK. Stonehenge is a collection of standing stones, each around 13 feet high and weighing around 25 tons. The great mystery of Stonehenge is… how did they get there and what on earth were they used for? 4000 years later we are no closer to finding out for sure. Try to figure that out for yourself on your visit.
