When embarking on a city break depending on the size of the city you visit, you may find yourself running out of things to do after a while. This is where day trips can make up the shortfall. They give you flexibility in terms of location and timeframe, and if you have the right transport you can also visit a variety of different locations within a short time frame. Here are some of the best day-trips you can make if you are staying in Bristol accommodation for a city break.
- The Brecon Beacons
The Brecon Beacons are a wonderful area to visit if you are a big fan of natural landscape and beauty. Being just a 2-hour drive from Bristol, if you chose the city for your holiday you will not be short of things to do. We recommend getting up early for this one so you can take full advantage of the day.
- Take a trip from Bristol to Bath
If 2 hours is a bit too long for you, then why not take a trip to the historic city of Bath. Attractions like the Royal Cresent and the Roman Baths make this one of the most popular cities to visit in the UK. Being just 40 minutes from Bristol, this is a much closer day trip you can make from your accommodation.
- Drive down to Cheddar Gorge
Cheddar Gorge is one of the most popular attractions in the UK for a reason. The amazing views from the top of the Gorge are a great place to have a picnic on a warm summers day and the tours around Cheddar caves are fascinating. If you’re into stalactites and stalagmites this day trip is perfect to make from your Bristol accommodation.
- Venture out to Stourhead
The Stourhead property encompasses a series of Neo-Classical Georgian gardens in Somerset. If you want to take time out for a chilled day-trip with the family, this is perfect. We recommend going on a clear and warm day to truly enjoy the wonderful scenery and Georgian architecture.
Make sure you book Bristol accommodation that is well located
Day trips are a fantastic way to fortify your city break and give you access to a variety of different locations. Bristol is a well-positioned city, located near Wales and areas like the rest of the South-West and even London are a short train journey away. If you are going to have the best possible stay, make sure you choose serviced Bristol accommodation that is well located in the city, with easy access to shops and transport links.
