And so, we walk to our next destination of Clifton. The walk from Queens Road to Clifton takes you past numerous ice cream coloured houses and into the beautiful village of Clifton. I used to work in Clifton, and regularly ate my lunch on a bench within Birdcage Walk where an extremely friendly squirrel used to sit next to me whilst I ate my sandwich!Surrounded by Georgian Architecture, there are so many lovely cafes, restaurants, shops and bars.Read More
Continuing from my last post finishing in the City Centre, we are heading to the independent cultural hub of Stoke's Croft. Stoke's Croft begins on Cheltenham Road and eventually leads onto Gloucester Road.
Stoke’s Croft is a very interesting hub for artists and artisans and you will find lots of bohemian shops and street art. Stoke’s Croft is a little rough around the edges, though has been gentrified over the past few years which in a way is a shame since Stoke’s Croft holds so much character and soul and is really the last refuge of the real ‘underground’ Bristol. There is such a community and local history in this area which I hope never fades.Read More
Bristol has a very special place in my heart and feels like a second home to me. I moved there to be with Dave and we rented our first home together, a beautiful apartment within The Robinson Building in Bedminster. I had never lived away from home, and it was quite a scary but liberating time. I fell head over heels for Bristol and all of its creativity and quirks. Though we moved back to the Midlands, I visit Bristol often to see friends and just say hello to one of my favourite cities. There always seems to be new cafes and shops and places to visit popping up but I thought I would do a round-up of my favourites areas and places within them. Get yourself some comfy shoes, we have some walking to do!Read More
