“ City streets, markets, shopping malls, large retail parks... „
For anyone that hasn't visited Bristol for a shopping trip, jump on the next bus, plane, train car heading this way. When I recently moved to Bristol I was sceptical of what Bristol had to offer but the answer is simply everything you could ask for. The main shopping area in Bristol is now Cabot Circus, a purpose built shopping complex and redevelopment of the local area. It recently opened at the beginning of September and is now thriving. Cabot Circus is home to many many exclusive and luxury brand from Harvey Nichols to Links of London to Ted baker and beyond. The layout of Cabot Circus can be a little confusing, its is split onto 4 floors but you can enter on the ground floor or the first floor. It is still very clean and fresh with great facilities for disabled and mother and baby. The tope floor is mainly restaurants and a Showcase Deluxe Cinema - quiet simply Cabot Circus has it all. As if that wasn't enough, a five minute walk from Cabot Circus brings you to the old town centre, sporting many large well founded stores such as M&S, Boots and BHS with a few boutique type shops thrown in for good measure. I would class the town centre as more High Street stores than Cabot Circus and if you walk further out towards the outskirts of town there are even more specialist shops, for example a Polish Market, a fabulous herbal Tea shop and many many more. If you couple all these areas together Bristol City Centre has everything you could possibly need.
I find bristol shopping is amazing place to shop at. Such as i like to buy alot of brand names such a nike air trainers bench clothing playboy clothing ecko and so on. So on a sunday morning we headed down to the market and found great brilliant bargains such as three bench t.shirts for 10.00 can you belive it as one of those would cost around 45.00 in the stores in your local town.Also they was selling of fresh fruit and veg at riddiculouse prices so cheap i bagged bags full. I also baged a pair of limited addition nike air trainers for just 20.00 as they are around 89.99 in my local stores i thought it was great. As i like to go for lunch when i have a shopping day out theres plenty of places to eat such as burger king,mcdonalds,kfc,subwy,friendly nice local pubs, Also there inside shopping mall at cribs way is great i dident find it to cheap but had so many things that my local shopping centre doesent have like certain shops. I love to shop at bristol and if you want a girl day out bristol is deffinatly the place to go.
Bristol is 'the' place to go if you are in Somerset for a day out. Unlike Cribbs Causeway, which is a heck of a drive down the m5, once you are in Bristol the queues die down. Bristol has everything a person could want from a city. The variety of places to go is excellent, and though not on the same scale as London it is still good. Places to eat for lunch or tea are good value, and it is easy to find a '2 for the price of 1' offer in one of the local pubs. It is never hard to find somewhere to eat in Bristol as the main Broadmead part is full of the famous Macdonald’s and Bugar King's. If you can be bothered to walk down into the city centre or market place that is where you will find a different variety of bars and pubs. The atmosphere of the place is friendly and someone is always around to offer directions. The shopping area Broadmead contains all the well known high street stores, from new look, to HMV, to Dixons. Everything you could want to buy is here, though for those of you with a pining for more than these shops a 10-minute walk can take you to a variety of less well known places.
