Explore the South West and Wales

Bristol is perfectly located for day trips across south west England and Wales - from beach holidays to city breaks. Here’s four ideas to get you started...

Cornwall

Traverse sand, sea and surf down a wild coast towards Land’s End. Nature takes centre stage in the Eden Project’s giant biomes, while the legend of King Arthur lives on in Tintagel Castle. Fresh fish, cream teas and traditional pasties complete the magic. Plan your trip to Cornwall

Cotswolds

Discover Shakespeare in his hometown of Stratford-upon-Avon, walk the Cotswold Way, or try your hand at windsurfing at Cotswold Water Park. Gastronomical delights await in the form of cheese, pork and gin. Plan your trip to the Cotswolds

Somerset

Come for the food and stay for the views; try cave-aged cheese in Cheddar Gorge and take a leisurely cycle ride down the Strawberry Line through Thatchers Cider orchards. From the beauty of the Mendip hills to the historic Glastonbury Tor, there’s so much to see and do. Plan your trip to Somerset

Wales

The Welsh landscape is a mountain-bikers playground, with endless countryside for nature-lovers to explore. Freshly baked Welsh cakes, towering castles and a buzzing capital city contrast with simple beach life at the Gower Peninsula. Plan your trip to Wales
