Discover, connect, save and shop in Bristol.

Join us as we explore independent business around Bristol 1 -7 December.


Thanks to its unique identity, it’s a special place where people visit for the shopping, the history, the party scene and the vibe. And they stay for the inclusive, welcoming atmosphere that truly offers something for everyone.

Situated just off the M5 and with two train stations, it’s really easy to access. Boasting views across the water to Wales and being a stone’s throw to the glorious Cotswolds and rural Somerset, Bristol’s location is enviable.

Bristol is steeped in rich history, and it offers visitors more than just a glimpse of the past with museums and heritage sites to explore, along with the beautiful Harbourside. But it’s right up to the minute too with a huge choice of pubs, clubs and family attractions on offer, along with virtual tours, spas and wellbeing centres and theatres and cinemas.
