5 autumn events that will have you heading for a long weekend in Bristol

With the summer over and autumn fast approaching many will be trying to find ways to entertain themselves on the weekend. Luckily, the post-summer period offers some fantastic activities and events to attend in the city of Bristol. Here are 5 of the best ones to try out if you visit the city for a long weekend. 

  1. The Lion King at Bristol Hippodrome 

If you are a fan of the theatre or the Lion King, or even both then the Bristol Hippodrome is the place to be this autumn. The much-loved play follows the story of the famous Disney film. The spectacular theatre effects employed will be sure to make this a memorable part of the time you spend venturing out of your Bristol accommodation. 

  1. The Spooky Ship: SS Great Britain 

With autumn comes Halloween, and Bristol could be the perfect place to enjoy the holiday in October. You will not be short of activities to attend on the night and our pick is the fright fest at the SS Great Britain. The historic ship has something for everyone and could be perfect if you are taking your family on a trip and staying in Bristol accommodation. 

  1. Bristol Zoo: Creepy Creatures

If you are travelling to your Bristol accommodation with some younger children you may have to keep your Halloween celebrations early; in which case the ‘creepy creatures’ event at Bristol Zoo is perfect. The event wraps up at 3:30 pm so will not keep you away from your Bristol accommodation for too long. 

  1. The Christmas Market 

Okay, we know it’s a long way off. But the Christmas market in Bristol actually runs from November the 8th to December. A trip to some Bristol accommodation could give you the perfect opportunity to get on top of your Christmas shopping. The Christmas market is located at the Bristol city centre. Also, Bristol would be a good place to celebrate Christmas with both family and colleagues from work. If your office is planning on a Christmas party, then you can find plenty of Christmas Party venues in Bristol and book it at the earliest. You may not want to miss a good venue, just because you didn’t do the prebooking. Not to mention, your friends at work would be proud of you for finding a good place to party.

  1. South of the River Food Tour

If you are booking your Bristol accommodation to explore your tastes as a foodie then the food tour could be perfect for you. The event tours you through 8 taster sessions of the city’s best independent eateries. Tickets start at 50 and the event runs throughout the autumn period.
