Just Singles On Location: Bristol
Bristol: famous for bridges, balloons and boats. Oh – and Banksy! We’ve scoured this brilliant city to bring you the best places to take your date…
As the hometown of Banksy, we couldn’t not mention the local street art scene. If you live in Bristol, it’s likely that you regularly walk past the fantastic art covering the walls of the city, without taking it in. Bristol street art walking tours, such as Where The Wall, are the number one activity in the city and are the perfect way to impress someone that isn’t from the local area. As the graffiti capital of the UK, the walking tours show you Banky’s work, as well as the ever-changing work of the over 200 up-and-coming artists that live and work in Bristol. Plus, all the funds from the tour go back into the community, so you can be sure that while you and your date are having a good time, you’re also helping out local artists.
For an extra romantic date (although a little cheesy), head to the top of Brandon Hill to watch the sunset. The oldest park in Bristol, it has fantastic views overlooking the entire city and Harborside. If you arrive early enough, you can climb the Cabot Tower and enjoy panoramic views, but be quick as it closes at dusk!
For something slightly more lively, The Lanes has established itself as the “ultimate adult playground”. Complete with five bowling lanes, a pizzeria, pool tables and a karaoke room, you and your date will be entertained for hours (just try not to put them off with your singing!). If all that flirty competition has you a bit peckish The Lanes also holds Ray’s Pizza, famous for its 18” sharing portions.
As the UK’s first cycling city, what better way to explore with your date than on a tandem bike ride. It’s twice as nice, but double the trouble – you and your date will have to work together to make sure you both don’t go flying! The perfect date for a crisp autumn day, Bristol Tandem Hire also offer artisan food hampers, so you can stop for a romantic picnic in the park.
