From Banksy to balloons, how to spend your summer in Bristol
Bristol. It’s an awesome city with loads of great things to see and do.
Now, as we add the finishing touches to our Copper Building in South Bristol, a stunning structure which hundreds of people will soon call home, we’ve compiled a list of the top 5 things to do in the area this summer.
From Banksy to DaVinci, a summer of art
The Bristol Museum and Art Gallery has a packed 2019 schedule, with exhibitions including “Fabric Africa”, the infamous display of “Banksy’s Evolved Parliament” as well as a celebration of Leonardo Da Vinci to mark 500 years since the artist’s death.
Speaking of Banksy, Bristol’s homegrown artist’s work is much easier to find than the man himself. This handy guide from Visit Bristol shows you the best routes to go if you plan on hunting down Banksy’s original works – showing “the stories behind the paintings and the culture that makes Bristol the street art and graffiti capital of the UK”
Take a stroll through a hidden gem
Hengrove Park is a beautiful, and sizeable park, which will take you a good few hours to walk around! This former airfield still features the old runway at its centre; the rest of the space is filled with beautiful green areas, a nature reserve and a kids playground.
