It's not a 'place of interest' but a ferry ride along the harbour could be fun.
You can pick up a key at the house that unlocks the Roman farmhouse site on Kings Weston Ave / Long Cross. In the shed there is kept a small collection of Roman items and mosaics.
Couple of vinyards down near Wells with some decent wine now. English sparkling and decent bachus.
Wookey hole and Cheddar gorge.
Walks on the Mendips looking for shrooms!
Biking to Bath and even Bradford on Avon always fun if you wanna suffer a bit.
Went to Avebury last year too and really enjoyed it, bit twee but very interesting.
I grew up in Lawrence Weston so had many a school trip to the Roman Villa as a kid
Whoever's into quality beer, I have as good a list of the better beer-friendly Bristol pubs** as anyone does who doesn't live in Bristol.
**mainly central Bristol, but still.
Can offer highlights, if this is of any interest to people visiting Bristol. I organise an annual trip for pub 'research' from Swansea to Bristol for a few of our local CAMRA types.
Our Swansea CAMRA trip is now confirmed for Saturday 7th April.
The Saturday after Easter Saturday -- as the 30th March is not officially called
Join us if you wish.
I know almost all Bristol pubs well, and I can send you a list/map/bunch of links if needed
Any new things people would recommend round these parts? Or more unknown stuff? I seen the avon railway is set to close and never been before, so might try and go before xmas..
Do you mean the West Somerset Railway? Not heard anything about the Avon Valley Railway closing...
Apologies yep that's the one I meant. You been on either? Any good?
