A Bristol break..........

We've just been away to Bristol for a couple of days. I love Bristol - wish I lived there in many ways - it's such an attractive, vibrant place.  Today it looked lovely in the Autumn sunshine -

We went to the St Nicholas Markets area - some great stalls and shops -

Vintage clothes! -

The interior of the hall is ornately decorated - 

Check out the door knocker! -

Lovely handmade things -

Cool aprons!? -

An exotic cafe -

And a lovely flower shop -

The Banksy street art / graffiti on Park St has had paint splatted on it :( - (is that despoiling, if its graffiti to start with?)  -

AND I got some new shoes!   Plain DMs - to wear with coloured tights? -

And then -



  1. It sounds like you have had a lovely few days in a city which has many lovely areas! I very seldom go into Bristol, despite being only 45 minutes away, as I always seem to end up in Bath when I do my shopping. However, I do enjoy the market you feature here, and a friend of mine lives in Southville, an area full of pretty houses and artists. Your blog entry now inspired me to go and explore Bristol a little more! ;-)

    Thank you so much for your kind words on my blog entry just now - I appreciate them very much.
