    Or cycling - in which case you can then pop over the bridge and make an interesting round trip around the Severn area ... the roads are nice and qyuiet on a Sunday .. and you can go quite a way just on dedicated car-free lanes.

    I hope there's at least a diversion in place on that footpath :confused:

    On points of interest. Crappy train to Severn Beach is well worth the ride.

    Lamplighter shut?! Aw man I used to go meet my mate who live in shire there on Thursdays. Used to get the crappy train back to Easton. The 22:22 ghost train. No-one got on, no one got off... but it stopped at each station, rumbling through the night... *mystical wind noises*

    would definitely recommend the cube microplex cinema on dove street south near stokes croft. quite hard to find but a gem of a place, went to a zombie b movie showing there on friday and it was a right hoot.

    Also went to the 'secret' bar at the top of park street last night, think its called Hyde & Co. Anyway, was actually at a wedding so was there for about an hour or so, but basically its set up like a speak easy, so you've got ring a bell, someone checks you out through a hole in the door before letting you in.

    Inside, initially it kind of looked like a strip club, lots of red and black with very little light-but maybe thats just me.
    Drinks were a bit pricey, a bottle of beer and a glass wine came to 8.50, and i got the feeling that later on it ponsy student hipster cunts, but overall i quite liked it.

    Anyone else been

    Mr Moose What the hell are we supposed to tell the kids?

    Surely anywhere in Bristol near water with a floating log is a must right now.

    Went to Stanton Drew when I was back in the south west. Suggested it to my dad, dont think he'd ever heard of it, and first I knew was a friend saying she went there for solstice sunrise.

    Really recommended if you like going n looking at stone circle type things. No fucker there hardly n very pleasant countryside. Decent pub with a big garden too, which you'll struggle to stay away from cos some of the stones are in their garden!

    Much more accessible from Briz than Avebury n Stone Henge btw. On the road out to the airport.

    Very clever mr. SPAMmer - though that's probably the first thing that comes up when you google "Bristol"

    We've been there once. my dad, a fundamentalist atheist, refused to go in and sat in the car, whereas I, with two zoo-happy kids to placate, went in.

    I did however go to great efforts to drop the biggest turd possible in the bogs - my intention was to cost them as much in plumbers fees as they'd taken from me in entrance fees to this loon-fest.

    Never been back.

    I'm in London but this just came up on the Ian Visits blog newsletter for any of you in the Bristol area...

    The abandoned railway tunnel used by the BBC in WW2

    Looks really interesting, has anyone visited?

    Open days this year on 21st May and 9th & 10th September.
