Planning a trip to Bristol – win a night in a Travelodge


One city that we, as a family, have never been to is Bristol. Mummy went there to take MeeMee to University, and managed a very quick look around the centre, and she has been to Cribbs Causeway a couple of times, but that is it.

My Nana and Grandad have a touring caravan and visit every year – they love it there. They keep telling us we should go, and now that MeeMee is living there, we are going to!

1. Where to stay

There are so many great hotels in Bristol why not Get up and Go to one of the Travelodges there? They are great value for money, and many have been refurbished.

2. What to visit

We hope to go before Christmas to see the gorgeous German Christmas Market that is now on, MeeMee says it is so lovely and festive.

Shops! Of course, Mummy and Lea are keen to look around all the shops that we don’t have!

SS Great Britain. Nana and Grandad have told us so many times how brilliant this ship is and it is Bristols Number 1 attraction. I get FREE entry until I am 4, and other tickets let you visit as much as you like for a whole year!

Other fab places I would like to go to are Bristol Zoo (I LOVE animals) and Bristol Aquarium (I LOVE fish!)

3. Where to eat

Nana and Grandad have found some lovely Coffee Shops and restaurants in Bristol, especially over looking the water. There are the major companies as well as small local businesses.

Check out AA Taxis if you need a good taxi service while in Bristol.
