Hi everyone! In this post, I wanted to share with your the best free things to do in Bristol – one of the most vibrant and arty cities in the UK. Moreover, I wanted to share with you the promo code for the new great bus service called Sn-ap – I used them when I went to Bristol from London and it was just £9 return, however, you can get your first return bus trip for free with the promo code tripsget (Disclaimer: I would get a tiny credit for my future trips as well – Airbnb style).
So, let’s get started with the free things to do in Bristol:
1. Visit the M Shed
My favourite of the free things to do in Bristol is definitely M Shed. M Shed is a wonderful museum that is all about Bristol. You can learn about the famous people of Bristol, lesser famous people of Bristol and just ordinary Bristolians! M Shed covers everything, from history to modern lifestyle items. Moreover, M Shed has a great terrace on the last floor, from where you can enjoy the beautiful panorama of Bristol!
2. Walk in the harbour and listen to street musicians
Bristol is such an artsy city! I haven’t seen as many street musicians as in Bristol anywhere in the world. And they were great. It makes walking around the harbour even more enjoyable.
3. Go on a self-guided street art tour in Bristol
If you’re on a budget, fine, you don’t have to take a street art tour. Instead, you can take a self-guided street art tour in Bristol! Justine from the Wanderer of the World has written this amazing blog post with the maps and so on, so you should definitely check it out!
4. Take photos with pretty storefronts in Clifton Village
Clifton is the prettiest district in Bristol and it’s just a pleasure to walk around Clifton. Also, Clifton has so many beautiful restaurants, cafes, storefronts, that it would just take ages to see them all.
5. Cross the Clifton Suspension Bridge by foot
Another of the free things to do in Bristol is crossing the Clifton Suspension Bridge. If you do it by car, you will have to pay £1, however, if you cross it by foot, it’s absolutely free! And the views from Clifton Suspension Bridge are breathtaking.
6. Visit Bristol Museum & Art Gallery
For beautiful art and historical artefacts, visit the Bristol Museum and Art Gallery and of course, just as any other spot in this post, it’s free to visit!
7. ARNOLFINI Gallery
Another great free spot to visit in Bristol is Arnolfini Gallery. Head there for a lot of great contemporary and controversial art. If you’re not a fan of Modern Art, better heat to Bristol Museum or M Shed.
8. Visit Bristol Cathedral
Another great spot in Bristol is the Bristol Cathedral. I love visiting Cathedrals, so I would recommend you to visit the Bristol Cathedral for sure!
These were 8 free things you can easily do in Bristol in one day or over the weekend! Liked this post? Share it on Social Media!
