Autumnal Weekend Breaks in Bristol

For many, autumn is the perfect time to travel. There are fewer people visiting the city, which means less queueing for the top attractions and you’re almost certain to get a table in the best restaurant. There is plenty to see and do in Bristol in Autumn including exploring the great outdoors, enjoying the heritage of the city and attending some of the many events in Bristol. Before you add to your ‘things to do in Bristol’ list, book the perfect accommodation. PREMIER SUITES serviced apartments in Bristol offers comfortable, convenient and flexible accommodation right at the heart of the action. Contact us directly for our lowest available rates.

Enjoy the Great Outdoors

Autumn is a great time to get out and explore. It’s the perfect balance of warm without being too hot, and cool without the biting cold of winter. This Autumn, get out and explore what our beautiful city has to offer. Enjoy a 13 mile walk, run or cycle along the Bristol & Bath Railway Path where you can enjoy beautiful scenery, a wildlife corridor and meet plenty of locals along the way.

Another outdoor option is a visit to the wonderful Ashton Court Estate. Start by preparing a packed lunch in the fully equipped kitchen in your suite, before heading out to enjoy 850 acres of woods and grassland. The area is home to plenty of native wildlife from small animals to the herd of deer who call the estate home.

Enjoy the Heritage of Bristol

No matter where you go in Bristol, you’ll find something historically significant or a part of our heritage. Take a walk around the beautiful floating harbour where you’ll see some of the city’s historic docks and lakes, as well as Queens Square. A highlight of the walk will be visiting the SS Britain, one of the most important British ships in the world. Nearby, you can also visit M Shed, a free museum with colourful exhibits detailing the history of the city and its people.
Another attraction is the stunning St Mary Redcliffe Cathedral. The 800-year-old building is a masterpiece of Gothic architecture and is a must-see for history lovers. Inside, you can view a superb collection of carved bosses, elegant 18th-century ironwork, beautiful stained glass and a world-famous organ.

What’s on in Bristol in Autumn

Autumn is a time for all things spooky so while you’re here, you should learn more about the dark side of Bristol.
