Bristol has an identity of its very own, it’s bohemian, unapologetically independent, it champions the arts, culture and community and this results in an eclectic melting pot of foodie hotspots, secret underground bars, one-off shops, big old buildings with interiors that could’ve been plucked from Venice, and markets selling everything from vinyl to bric a brac.
There’s nothing like a slathering of culture to set the tone for a romantic break. If you want to come away from a city with a full heart, a full belly and a full head of inspiration, then a romantic trip to Bristol is for you.
One more great thing about this city is its affordability. Even some of the fancy former bank building hotels are inexpensive. Here, my pick of the top three, to suit every budget.
