    Default Must visits in Bristol

    Yep, I'm off as well and currently putting the final touches to a week in Pembrokeshire.

    On the way home we will be staying over in Bristol for a couple of nights to meet up with one of the Wife's old school chums who now lives there.

    Still to book the B&B , so after advice of establishments I should try and book it very close to....

    From my limited knowledge of Bristol I would recommend the Kings Head in Victoria Street, about 5 minutes walk from Temple Meads station. It's quirky and has 4 handpulls on

    Try to get into Bag o Nails, Cornubia and Seven Stars for variety.

    All sound suggestions. The Coronation Tap has a bit of a reputation for Cider (so I never drink there), Seven Stars is the general advice for Real Ales. Let me and Dave know if you want to try and meet up for a swift pint one evening.

    Also just had the great idea that I should try and come up with a graffiti pub crawl one day, there is some fantastic wall art connected to various pubs round the city.

    Thanks for the offer Conrad,

    I'll send you a PM rather than boring the rest of the forum...

    Walking from the caravan site along the riverside I agree has some fantastic grafitti. Tried getting photos but they didn't do it justice. Mind blowing artistic work of art.

    Yeah as a city we have kind of embraced it, I think due to the Banksy connection. Does mean there is some fantastic displays as you wonder round though.
