Quick City Guide: Bristol, UK

The last time H and I visited the UK we flew in and out of Bristol instead of London.  It’s been a while since I had visited the city which is a shame as I lived there for a while before I started my touring life again.  I really couldn’t believe how much the city had change in appearance, but it still had the same good old cool, urban vibes which I love it for.

We intended to spend the day before our flight back to France in Bristol and Bath to do a little sightseeing.  This however didn’t go as planned!  As you can imagine it’s really hard saying goodbye and having to leave family and friends no matter how many times you do it, so we didn’t arrive in Bristol (Bath was a no-goer) until 5.30 in the evening the night before our flight.

So, here is a very quick Insta rundown of the few hours we did spend in Bristol and don’t forget you can follow me on Instagram to keep up to date on my daily doings and lovings.

Roamers & Seekers is a relatively new brand who are started dressing Bristolian musician Roni Size.  At the moment they have a pop-up store in Corn st which is well worth a visit.

The beautiful entrance to St Nichols market; at the weekend there are vintage stores out front and when you walk through the market check out the exterior outdoor area for little eateries and snack bars.
