I had no idea Bristol was so cool! Do you ever play that ‘I could live here’ game when you’re on holiday? I was walking around gawping at all the incredible street art, soaking up the cool vibe and constantly thinking ‘this city has everything I need to live well’. Everyone I spoke to was so friendly and happy to help point me in the right direction, be it for great coffee, good food, cool local music tips or the more touristic spots to check out.
Also, because we (7 friends and I) were there for the Dutty Moonshine Big Band album launch we were treated to some epic music both at the gig and at the after party where Slamboree and Dutty crews joined acts and Tore. It. Up! – it was an honor to attend; most memorable after-party ever. Slamboree are on tour at the moment, we came straight home and got tickets for their London gig at XOYO. Crazy talented. The Bristol music scene is legendary, sadly I’m only just fully appreciating this as I say goodbye to the UK.
As this was a fleeting weekend visit, the short time I had in Bristol was spent in the central city area so the pictures here are Street-Art-centric, but there is so much to see and do I think you could easily spend a week…or a lifetime there.
