It’s finally time to start planning a long-awaited return to Bristol to enjoy all of the things we missed last year. We’re looking forward to picking up where we left off this Christmas, spending time with friends and family, admiring the festive beauty of the city and shopping until we drop. Book Christmas accommodation in Bristol and beat the crowds this year. Our high quality serviced apartments offer you a home from home so you can enjoy everything that Christmas in Bristol has to offer.
Christmas Markets in Bristol
We can’t wait to explore the Christmas Market in Bristol and create new memories to make up for lost time. You’ll find a great selection of traders selling seasonal wares from crafts and decorations to food and drink. It’s ideal to pick up a unique or hand made gift from an independent business owner; something you won’t find on the high street. The market is located in the heart of the city centre, under the giant glittering Christmas tree and is home to over 50 unique stalls and shops. You can enjoy heated seating, live music, fun & games, festive food, and drink and lots more. You might even get a glimpse of the big man and his reindeer if you’re lucky.
Panto in Bristol
Theatre is finally back which means Christmas Pantos are once again on our radar. With most productions being cancelled last year, we’re promised bigger and better shows this Christmas. There are a variety of shows in 2021/2022 from large scale productions to smaller community shows. One to watch this year is Snow White starring the inimitable John Barrowman (Doctor Who) as the Wicked Queen. It’s showing in Bristol Hippodrome from 2nd December 2021 to 2ndJanuary 2022. For your ideal family panto accommodation, book a suite in PREMIER SUITES serviced apartments Bristol soon to avoid disappointment. We’re just 10-minutes from door to door, ideal for winter nights.
Enjoy a Family Christmas
If you’ve never been to Avon Valley, Christmas is a great time to go. Take a 20-minute drive from our accommodation in Bristol to enjoy their magical winter wonderland with the spectacular backdrop of lakes and woodlands. Using a specialist lighting company, they have created a wonderful Enchanted Village complete with illuminated walkways, sculptures, and decorated trees. You can enjoy a ride on the Polar Express Miniature Steam Train through the snowy forest and finish off with some delicious festive food and drink. Make sure to bring your letter to Santa to post first class in the very special post room.
Christmas at Bristol Zoo & Gardens
Bristol Zoo is exciting any time of the year but at Christmas they bring us something extra special. You can visit a very special Santa’s grotto, witness the busy elves rushing around, write a letter to Santa and step through the magical wardrobe doors to a snowy Christmas experience your little ones will talk about for years to come. Enjoy thousands of twinkling lights, a huge Christmas tree, illuminated pathways and very special animal shaped light statues. They can have their faces painted as their favourite animal and enjoy a festive picnic from the Hide café. Tickets are always in high demand for this very special experience so make sure you book soon.
Christmas Shopping in Bristol
Bristol is an excellent spot for shopping. We have many high street names, plenty of boutiques and many high-end household names dotted along our high street. This year, we encourage guests and visitors to shop local. Whether you’re doing your big shop or picking up a few bits and bobs, our independent and local retailers have something to suit every taste and budget. Clifton Village has lots of gorgeous little boutiques with clothing, toys, games decorations and nick-nacks from small businesses. Visit the Christmas Steps (it’s named this all year round, we promise!) for eight winding streets filled with shops, art galleries and eateries. St Nicks market has Bristol’s biggest collection of eclectic shops and retailers and is worth dedicating an afternoon to. You’re spoiled for choice.
