Talk To The Guest Of Honour

There tends to be two types of people when it comes to winter: those who don’t mind the cold and carry on as usual and those who, if human hibernation was an option, you wouldn’t see for six months of the year. This being the case, it’s important that you plan something that your stag or hen is going to enjoy. There’s no point in planning an outdoor adventure if they live in fear of frostbite through the winter months.

Bristol & Bath’s LGBTQ+ Nightlife

Bristol Bath LGBT

Bristol & Bath's LGBTQ+ Nightlife

In the past, gay bars existed as a safe haven for the LGBT community; somewhere gay, bi and transgender men and women could enjoy a Saturday night without fear of persecution – and with the added bonus of potentially meeting someone. In today’s more accepting society (for the most part, at least), this isn’t such an issue. Anyone can walk into a bar, whatever their sexual orientation and order a drink with their partner (although again, sadly this might not be wise in some places). With increasingly progressive attitudes – and the power of online dating – the original requirements of specifically gay venues seem less salient. So why are gay bars and clubs still thriving?

Quite simply, because they’re awesome. LGBT nightlife sates all appetites – quite literally! From live cabaret and drag shows, to trendy cocktail bars and clubs, there’s something for every night owl. Here are a few of the finest LGBT venues in Bristol and Bath.

The Top 5 Best Afternoon Tea's In Bath

This makes a Bath afternoon tea the perfect activity to invite older, shyer or less active wedding guests to. You can include everyone in different parts of your day and accommodate everyone.

Bath is the UK’s most famous spa city, and so a popular destination for hens, so it’s easy to find beauty, health and wellbeing treatments there, but what about afternoon tea in Bath? Don’t worry!

Bristol Film Festival: Horror in the Caves

Deep beneath the streets in the Radcliffe Caves, the local Film Festival presents one of the most unique Bristol Halloween events: films in the crypts! Check out a scary screening with newcomers such as Midsommar or the classic Dracula – there is an impressive line-up of monstrous movies across the whole of the Halloween weekend. Even visiting in the day can be daunting as the darkness never leaves the caves… and those stone walls have a lot of ghost stories to tell.

SS Great Britian

2) SS Great Britain

Bristol harbourside’s number one attraction, the SS Great Britain is a spectacle not to be missed.

The brainchild of Bristol’s famous Isambard Kingdom Brunel, the ship was an imposing, colossal feat of maritime engineering. And it still is to this day. Visitors are invited to step aboard and step back in time, to experience life at sea, as it would have been on her maiden voyage in 1843.

Is Bristol the best city in the UK?

Bristol : The Best City In The UK: Why The Surprise?

In March 2017 Bristol was awarded first place in the Sunday Times ‘Best place to live’ Guide. And now the announcement is ‘old news’, I feel safe to vocalise my surprise at, well, the surprise.

Seven years ago, before I moved to the city, I may have been among those raising an eyebrow over Bristol’s new accolade. I’ve lived in several of the country’s bustling cosmopolitan hubs, as well as some of the more rural spots, and wasn’t that impressed with either end of the spectrum.

But having spent some time getting to know Bristol and all it has to offer, it’s no wonder to me that it keeps coming up trumps. And in my humble opinion, here are the reasons why.

The History Of Bristol

Bristol is steeped in history, much of which is still tangible to this day. From the 12th Century Temple Church, to the SS Great Britain and even the labyrinth of caves in Redcliffe, Bristol’s past fuses seamlessly with its modern-day vibe.

The city can even boast an array of famous former occupants, such as the notorious Edward Teach (otherwise known as Blackbeard), Isambard Kingdom Brunel, and even the elusive street artist Banksy.

Bristol's Food Scene

From the North to the South of the river, Bristol is home to hundreds of award-winning restaurants and cafes to sate all appetites. Every meal is more-than catered for ten times over; try a healthy breakfast of smashed avocados and poached egg at Primrose Café, or a less-healthy all-you-can-drink Prosecco brunch at Brace & Browns.

If you’ve time for lunch, you could do much worse than the Burger Joint in Bedminster, before a first-rate dinner at the Pony and Trap. (It’s a few miles out of Bristol, but the food is first-rate and the scenic views of the Somerset countryside are stunning).

Even the much-loved chains you expect to encounter in a city are situated on water fronts or in beautiful period buildings. If you can handle a cocktail or two, the covert, speak-easy themed Milk Thistle has some of the best mixes in the city – a city, by the way, famed for its love of gin.

Activities Available In Bristol

There are so many Bristol activities, no audience is excluded and there’s literally something for every event. Water babies can take to the river for a cruise on the Avon, or even try their hand at paddle boarding.

Young families can spend a day at @Bristol, guaranteed to educate all and keep the kids entertained for hours. Those looking for a romantic evening can wander through the quaint, picturesque streets of Clifton before an intimate meal at one of the many restaurants (or enjoy a cocktail or two by candlelight).

Large groups can make the most of Bristol’s extensive range of bars and clubs, but it doesn’t have to end there: Groups of grown-ups (stags and hens included) wanting a west-country themed day out need look no further than West Country Games. Welly throwing, Drunk Pub Skittles and Pitchfork Duels are only a few of the crazy games that are guaranteed to bring people together and create memories that’ll last a lifetime.

Location, Location, Location

In short, what isn’t on Bristol’s doorstep? The city is well situated to offer some of the best of Britain. Take a short (less then two hours) drive south and you’re in Devon, home to seaside towns such as Sidmouth and Lime Regis, perfect boltholes for romantic weekends away, or a wonderful family day out.

London is easy to reach by car or train – the latter only taking about an hour and a half. If you’re looking to go further afield, Bristol airport charters flights to Edinburgh, the continent and even as the USA.

There are so many reasons why Bristol is an incredible place to live. Furthermore, future plans to improve Bristol will only fuel the love for the city, which residents – and visitors alike – find hard to contend.

Making the most of things to do in Bristol

Some attractions are seasonal and for the most part, the festivals are held on set dates every year. Check online in advance and remember that if you do wish to attend something specific, tickets may need to be booked in advance – some more popular events do sell out a long time ahead!

For any specific requirements; dietary, ability or anything else, most venues will go out of their way to help accommodate you. For peace of mind, contact venues ahead of time to let them know, but rest assured that Bristol’s attractions are governed by the same equality laws as elsewhere in the UK and so reasonable adjustments will be made where they can be.

West Country Games are particularly good at this and have lots of experience in creating and delivering bespoke events – so we recommend them as something that truly caters for everyone!
