When was the last time you and your partner booked some time away? If you’re us then I think we have had 1 night alone in the last 8 years so, well overdue!
As the kids get older it is only natural to need some time as a couple and to feel like you can maybe leave the kids with a trusted relative for a night or two. I’ve been looking online for some cheap and easy weekend getaway spots via Grouponas it is a perfect place to spot any deals when you’ve got a limited budget.
We had friends in Bristol for a few years and it seemed a shame that we have never got there at all. As a city break Bristol seems to have a lot to offer. I have been checking out what the city would have to offer us if we were to spend a few days there.
There is an open air concert venue at St Phillips Gate or you could learn a new skill with some of the affordable Dancing classes in the city too! A few nights away and a few activities can be a great way to reconnect. Whatever you choose make it unique to you. We always enjoy going to gigs together so we would look at music venues and what is going on during our stay.
If you and your partner aren’t the super active type then why not check out Tyntesfield country house, have a walk around the beautiful gardens and peruse around it’s fabulous second hand book shop. I have got to say this sounds like a perfect day to me.
Bristol is also home to some great museums. I think our first port of call would be the Brunel’s SS Great Britain . It claims to have 6 galleries and is fully restored. It also has a dressing up photo booth which would make a fabulous fun keepsake of your long weekend away! Ahoy matey!
Of course you would want to make sure you make the most of your couples weekend away by fitting in some fabulous sites but there is also something to be said about having some peaceful time without a child grabbing at your ankles. Make sure you get some sleep while you can and eat at one of the lovely restaurants Bristol has to offer without having to share from your plate!
Have you visited Bristol? Where would you recommend for new visitors? What were your highlights?
