Hi guys it's Monica here from @naasto_baasto showcasing my fave bits about Bristol. @stpaulscrnvl is in full swing and the procession was so beautifully vibrant as always. This is my favourite day in the Bristol calendar by far, so it is truly a pleasure to be at the helm this weekend especially. Are you at Carnival today? Post your best bits in the comments below #summerinbristol #stpauls #carnival #stpaulscarnival

Hi guys it's Monica here from @naastobaasto showcasing my fave bits of Bristol. @epicbreakfast have saved me on weekends I don't want to leave the house on search for brunch ingredients. The guys source locally produced ingredients and deliver it in reusable packaging (glass tupperware, beeswax food wrap, glass bottles etc), which they collect the next evening. Enough breakfast for two days with coffee and juice, you can also opt for something boozy for a little bit extra. Everything is delicious 🤤 Off to stuff my face, catch you later! #summerinbristol #bristol #bristolindependents #brunch #treatyoself

Hi guys it's Monica here from @naasto_baasto showcasing all my favourite bits of Bristol for the weekend. As a resident of Redfield I'm lucky enough to live under 5 minutes walk away from St George's park. Its the perfect place to clear my head with a walk around the pond. The park also has a skate park, community garden (which I love) and tennis courts offering free tennis lessons for all ages this summer. Heading back home to grab some brunch before carnival I thought I would snap a photo of the mural on Church road. The 'high street' of Redfield boasts awesome cafes such as @thebristolloaf and @thefarawaytreecafe, the amazing deli/shop @southvilledeli and great pubs such as @theoldstillage. Here's to a great weekend! #summerinbristol #redfield #churchroad #parklife #bs5 #bristol

Hello Stephen here @spokeandpencil with my last post of my Insta takeover. Like many people who live in Bristol I love the harbour. It is a terrific and accessible way to spend a few hours. You can actually get all the way round in a wheelchair and there are plenty of places to stop off at along the way. My personal favourite is @underfallyard. I love looking at all the boats being restored. Anyway, hope you've enjoyed my posts. Thanks for all the messages and comments. #bristoluk #swisbest #england #uk #photosofengland #picturesofengland #lovegreatbritain #loveuk #mymicrogap #hellobristol #igersbristol #bristol247 #bestofbristol #floatingharbour #bristoldocks #bristolharbour #VisitBristol

Hello Stephen here @spokeandpencil with my Insta takeover. This afternoon I've just been to a poetry workshop with the wondeful @kolekaputuma as part of @africawritesbristol. Whilst there I met Jaz (in the photo) from Bristol based independent publishers @nobindingsproject who talked to me about a fascinating new project called Radiobooks Rwanda. This is a collaboration between No Bindings, @huzapress from Rwanda and @KwaniTrust from Kenya. It's an innovative series of three books which as well as being in print can be shared, listened to and interacted with via WhatsApp. Such a brilliant idea. #bristoluk #swisbest #england #uk #photosofengland #picturesofengland #lovegreatbritain #loveuk #mymicrogap #hellobristol #igersbristol #bristol247 #bestofbristol #radiobooksrwanda #kwanitrust #nobindings #audiobook #share #poetry #poems #huzapress

Hello everyone Stephen here ( @spokeandpencil). Last night I went to watch the magnificent @elbowofficial as part of @bristolsounds. I've seen Elbow so many times I've lost count but they were on great form last night and Guy Garvey is such a warm presence on stage. Local legend Big Jeff even got a mention! I was really impressed by the wheelchair access as well. Really good to have seen thought go into making it as easy as possible. If you were there let me know what you thought in the comments. #VisitBristol #bristol #bristol247 #igersbristol #elbow #bristoluk #swisbest #england #uk #photosofengland #picturesofengland #lovegreatbritain #loveuk #mymicrogap #hellobristol #bestofbristol

Hello everyone Stephen here ( @spokeandpencil). This afternoon I took a trip to @Liminaimmersive to try out their virtual reality theatre. Limina is the UK's first dedicated arts and culture virtual reality venue and it is right here in Bristol. They screen a range of film and documentary VR experiences. Today my wife and I (@project.HB) watched their specially commissioned film for Bristol Pride called Virtually Queer. I'm a big fan of Limina. I've been a few times and the VR allows my to experience things, like walking on the beach, which I haven't done in years or isn't that easy or possible because of my wheelchair. The theatre is located on Bristol's harbourside waterfront (Unit 5, 1 Canon's Road, BS1 5UH). #VisitBristol #bristol #bristol247 #igersbristol #limina #pride #bristolpride #vr #virtualreality #bristoluk #swisbest #england #uk #photosofengland #picturesofengland #lovegreatbritain #loveuk #mymicrogap #hellobristol #bestofbristol

One of our favourite things to do is explore all of the little alleyways and lanes dotted around Bristol!

Another option I touched on earlier for this weekend’s focus on peaceful spots in Bristol was finding calm in being outdoors - and in particular cold water swimming! Thanks to the @southwest_sealpups I have enjoyed some fantastic spots around Bristol and will mention them accordingly below! (Photos by @leography) ~ ~ 1: Cromhall Quarry ~ 2: Clevedon Marine Lake ~ 3: Clevedon Pier ~ 4: Abbots Leigh ~ ~ Immersing yourself in cold water (with caution!) has countless benefits for your physical and mental health. Often, if you don’t fancy a chilly dip just bring around water in Bristol is often linked to a place to enjoy a moment of tranquility (particularly with a hot drink!). If you have any questions about this please don’t hesitate to get in touch ( @deyaward). It has been a real treat to showcase some of Bristol’s peaceful spots and it just shows how many there are to discover on our doorstop!

visitbristol

The next spot for this weekend’s theme of peaceful areas in Bristol I hoped to show is Bristol Botanic Gardens just off the Downs. The sunny morning weather made it a perfect trip and I can say with confidence it was beyond peaceful. ~ ~ There are so many hidden corners whether you go for a walk, perching by the wild flowers, discovering flora from around the world or walking through a story of plant evolution, there is something for everyone. ~ @deyaward

visitbristol

Hello, I’m @deyaward and this week I will be hosting the #visitbristol account to showcase peaceful spots in and around Bristol. Areas to take five minutes in, or maybe a quiet seat, an activity or a place you may feel a connection to. ~ ~ I am so proud to live in a city where you can ask hundreds of strangers if they know a good spot to see frogspawn and many people offer me to see it in their gardens or allotments. I’ve learnt so much from people in this city and hope I can be a vessel over the rest of this weekend to showcase places you care about here that fill your day with calm or time to pause. ~ Today, I swam with the @southwest_sealpups [will share a photo of this!] in the crystal clear and freezing cold waters of Cromhall Quarry; a 20-30 min out of the centre. Cold water swimming is by far the greatest activity I have ever encountered that gives you that moment to reboot, gain perspective, and leave you for the rest of the day on a buzz. ~ This photo is from a place that I know many people spend time in to have a break from the hum of the city - Leigh Woods. Here, alongside the wildlife and walks, you are able to forage for wild garlic from Spring to early summer. The smell in the air, and the smell on your hands is just incredible. The green colour is so lush - and I would recommend picking the younger shoots which I think [after cooking this evening] had more flavour! One thing to remember is that Lily of The Valley is visually very similar but poisonous! The best way to differentiate is by rubbing what you think is wild garlic in your fingers and if you smell garlic you are good to go! [see today’s story for more of this]. ~ Leigh Woods is a tranquil woodland that has been enjoyed by Bristolians for hundreds of years and it had to feature in this weekend’s list of peaceful spots in Bristol to enjoy and explore. I look forward to sharing more with you and hearing more about yours!

What are your plans for the weekend? How about a spot of street art sightseeing? Bristol is full of imaginative pieces like Banksy's 'Girl with the Pierced Eardrum'. • This piece first appeared on the side of a building in Albion Docks in 2014 and depicts a take on Vermeer's famous 'Girl with a Pearl Earring'. 🎨 • 📸: @2polesfromwales #visitbristol

So for my final post as @caiburton on this account, I thought it was only fitting to share some of my favourite street art on North Street. I picked these pieces by @antcarver, @lucas_antics and @l7matrix! I love the creative vibe of bemmie, Southville, North Street and South Bristol as a whole - it's definitely worth exploring! And even though we're not having an @upfest this year, they still do loads of amazing work 😍 Thank you so much for having me this weekend, it's been great fun, and I hope you enjoyed it too! 😄 If you want to see more of what I get up to, check me out over on my account - @caiburton 😊 I'll probably stay on the stories for a bit more this evening, but otherwise, I'll see you on the other side 👋🏻 . #Bristol #bristolart #visitBristol #lovebristol #livebristol #igersbristol #hellobristol #BristolArtist #streetart #graffiti #upfest

I’m @richimal_bristol and I like bridges. So it’s just as well we have this magnificent one here in my home city. Earlier I discovered the vaults under one the bridge’s towers - see my story for a look inside 👀

visitbristol

I’m @richimal_bristol and I like gin. Bristol has been a centre for the production and importation of alcoholic drinks since the 1700s. Wines and spirits from Europe arrived at the Port of Bristol meanwhile we brewed beers and ales at this riverside city centre site until the 1990s. • Small independents continue this tradition by making artisan drinks with local ingredients. This afternoon I’m visiting 6 o’clock gin to discover how they’re keeping our heritage of drink production alive. See my story later for a glimpse behind the scenes at their distillery!

visitbristol

@richimal_bristol back again, this time from one of my favourite streets in Bristol, the elegant Royal York Crescent. If, like me, you enjoy walking and architecture, I thoroughly recommend a stroll along the crescent during your visit to Bristol.

It's @richimal_bristol here continuing my Visit Bristol takeover. I’m spending the morning in Clifton and next I’m visiting Clifton Observatory. It’s home to a camera obscura which projects panoramic views of the iconic Clifton Suspension Bridge and surrounding area. There’s also access to a cave in the Avon Gorge and a seasonal coffee shop. See my story for more!

Hello it’s @richimal_bristol here looking after Visit Bristol’s account for the weekend. I’m starting my Saturday in Clifton. It’s a beautiful part of Bristol and home to many of our attractions, including our most famous landmark, the Clifton Suspension Bridge. • During regular maintenance work in 2002, a worker discovered a series of vaults in the abutment under the tower on the Somerset side of the bridge. Today I’m going to take a look at the vaults for the first time, keep an eye on my story here to see what happens! • Clifton is short bus journey from the city centre and somewhere I thoroughly recommend you visit during your stay in Bristol.

It’s @richimal_bristol here taking over Visit Bristol. Today I’ve been at exploring the Wapping Wharf area of our harbour, home to the M Shed museum, The Matthew ship and a variety of places to eat and drink. Take a look at my story to discover more. I’m back tomorrow, have a great evening 👋

visitbristol

Hello I’m @richimal_bristol and I‘m here to show you some places to see when you visit Bristol. Today I’m focussing on one my favourite areas - the lovely harbour in the centre of our city. The star attraction of Bristol Harbour is Brunel’s SS Great Britain. Here you can learn why this ship was so ground breaking and learn more about the engineer who designed her, Isambard Kingdom Brunel. It’s great to wander around the ship too and imagine what it must have been like to sail in her.
