What to do in Bristol this Easter

It's been a long old four months since we last had a bank holiday, so we hope you're planning a long weekend away with your partner, friends or family!

Bristol is an incredibly beautiful city to explore, from the stunning view from Clifton Suspension Bridge, to having drinks by the Bristol Marina on a sunny afternoon. There is always something special going on and Easter weekend is no exception. Our coaches to Bristol have 5 drop off points from Bedminster to Stokes Croft, so you can fully explore wherever you want to in the city.

Float on the Harbourside by taking a boat trip (or a boozy one)

Can you think of a better way to spend your day than chilling on a boat trip around the harbourside pretending you’re abroad? Bristol Ferry Boats allows you to do just that, with a scheduled water bus service around the floating harbour, you can hop on and hop off between 17 stops. Or, you can sit back, relax and enjoy the views 364 days of the year in all weathers.

Fancy hiring your own boat and going on a booze cruise?

You can do just that! With a 2-3 hour cruise, the boats come in all shapes and sizes for up to 15 people (you can add more guests for a fee). It comes with a bar, and you have the option to bring your own food, hire the food and also have a pit stop (or two) at the pub!

Celebrate 10 years of wonder with Bristol Aquarium this Easter

If you want to do something fun and unique this Easter, head to Bristol Aquarium and view the world’s most strange and mesmerising underwater creatures. This extraordinary event will consist of games, activities and talks - and not to mention celebrating their 10th birthday!

You can just turn up on the day, or buy your tickets in advance on their website for 15% off.

Explore the wonders of Arnos Vale

In the heart of Bristol, you never would have thought that there was a secret woodland surrounded by extraordinary wildflowers, in the spectacular Victorian Garden Cemetery - Arnos Vale.

You can go on self-guided walks, explore the wonders of the secret paths and even go on tours. It’s a perfect afternoon if you want a stroll with your partner or fancy letting your children roam.

Discover Bristol’s unique, independent coffee shops

There are countless of cool and quirky coffee shops in Bristol for you to indulge in and try out. One in particular you should try, is Playground Coffee - even the name sounds exciting.

Alongside their swing sets there are a few board games to relive your childhood.  They are also a fully licensed bar stocked full of craft beers, ciders and cocktails if you fancied a kick.

Need a place to stay?

If you’re thinking of booking a hotel, why not chose The Clifton Hotel. Just a few minutes walk from one of our drop of points in Bristol (Clifton Down Station) and has a wonderful vibrant yet relaxed feel to it. It’s also perfectly situated with just a short walk to both Clifton village and Bristol’s lively town centre.

Bristol attracts plenty of families, couples, groups and solo adventures every bank holiday weekend. Let Snap get you there for a fiver.
