There's far too much to see and do in Bristol in one weekend but here's some ideas for your itinerary and stay at Ferndale Mews Bed and Breakfast Bristol.
Sample from the wide range of Real Ales at the Post Office Tavern, just 200m walk from Ferndale Mews Bed & Breakfast, then on for dinner in Westbury Village at the Gruppo Lounge. The roof terrace is open until 7pm in the summer.
Have breakfast at the Primrose Café in Clifton Village BS8 4AA, enjoy the quirky shops and walk to the Brunel's Suspension Bridge. Take coffee on the terrace of the White Lion next to the Avon Gorge Hotel.
Bristol Zoo is nearby and is a great attraction we especially like the Penguinarium, or you can drop down into Cabot Circus, Bristol's City Centre shopping district and have lunch in Harvey Nichols.
Cocktails and dinner at Browns, Whiteladies Road would round off a memorable day.
You might choose just a coffee and pan au chocolate at Coffee 1 in Westbury village just 400m from Ferndale Mews B&B Bristol or a more serious English at Rucola in Apsley Road BS8 2SW. Then perhaps a wonder down Blackboy Hill, Whiteladies Road, Park Street to College Green and then the Harbourside.
The SS. Great Britain is a really interesting attraction and gives an insight into the pioneering spirit of the people of Bristol, home of Concorde and the Airbus A380, the double decker passenger jet.
Depending on your inclination you might just take a light snack at lunch time to keep an appetite for a very impressive afternoon high tea at Bill's Restaurant in White Ladies Rd, near the Museum. The sandwiches and cakes are made when you order! It really is very impressive, if you can forgo your Sunday Yorkshire puddings.
