Bristol’s best hidden gems

'...you’re guaranteed not to forget your trip to the city anytime soon.'

From giant trampoline parks to the best places to have a picnic, there’s much more to Bristol than the Suspension Bridge and Banksy.

Here’s our favourite hidden gems…

1. Bounce around at Airhop

Trampoline parks seem to be having a moment, therefore there’s no way you can come to Bristol without visiting the world’s largest one – Airhop.

With a giant trampoline area, foam pit, dodgeball court, battle beams and much, much more besides, it’s guaranteed to be an hilarious day out whether you’re with your family or best mates.

2. Soar above Bristol in a hot air balloon

Bristol is a beautiful city, and in our opinion, there’s no better way to see it all than from up above.

Book a ride with either Bristol Balloons or Bailey’s Balloons and you’re guaranteed not to forget your trip to the city anytime soon

3. Have a picnic at Brandon Hill Park

Like we said, Bristol is full of stunning views and (aside from taking a hot air balloon up into the skies), paying a visit to Brandon Park is one of the best ways to see them.

Pack a picnic, relax in the city’s oldest park, and then make the climb to the top of the Cabot Tower to take in the sensational panoramic views of the entire city. Trust us, you won’t forget those sights quickly.
