Classic cinema date at The Watershed, a beautiful cross-art form venue. With 3 screens showing mainly art house films, it’s perfect for film lovers looking for an alternative to the bigger chain cinemas. It also has a lively café/bar area where locally sourced food is served up.
Catch a film and follow up with a glass of wine overlooking the Harbourside.
Brunel’s SS Great BritainNot your typically romantic date venue, but stepping back in time on board the Brunel’s SS Great Britain is a wonderful experience and will provide plenty of conversation! Experience the sights, sounds and smells of life on board for Victorian passengers and crew and descend under water below the glass ‘sea'; to touch the world’s first great ocean liner.
A great showcase of British Industrial History!
A Pint (or two) at the Grain BargeAfter the above educational activity, stroll towards the Grain Barge – a converted barge moored in the Bristol Harbour. Owned and supplied by the award winning Bristol Beer Factory brewery, they serve up a variety of local craft beers as well as a select few from Devon and Cornwall. Head to top deck to enjoy your pint with some spectacular panoramic views.
Bristol Zoo GardensLove visiting the zoo as a kid? It’s totally acceptable to have a Zoo Date, wandering around Bristol Zoo’s 12 acre gardens and visiting the 400 species of animals is a lovely way to spend your day. Don’t forget to visit the gift shop too for that little memento of your date (cuddly meerkats, fridge magnets etc…)
Breakfast at The Lockside RestaurantA waterfront café, Lockside Restaurant serves up one of the best breakfasts in the city! With views of the Clifton Suspension Bridge, it’s a lovely friendly (and relaxed) atmosphere, perfect for a breakfast date. We love the Lockside Classics, particularly their smoked salmon with poached eggs and bubble & squeak – yum! And hey, be a bit cheeky and wash your breakfast down with a glass of Bucks Fizz – it is a date after all.
Day Trip to Steep Holm IslandA little bit out of the way, but if you’ve got a day date and some time to spare, book yourselves onto a trip to Steep Holm Island. This privately owned island sits in the Bristol Channel about 5 miles off-shore from Weston-Super-Mare. The beautiful surrounding nature in this isolated haven is romance at its best. It’s also home to the remains of a 12th century Augustinian Priory for those of us that enjoy a little history time!
Cocktails at The Milk Thistle“We pride ourselves on being purveyors of the finest cocktails in the city…”
Housed in one of Bristol’s finest historic buildings, the atmosphere at The Milk Thistle is just as intoxicating as the cocktails they serve up. We’d recommend the Milk Thistle Daisy; a mix of Tanqueray Export Gin, Lemon Juice, and Spiced Pear Syrup, royally topped with Fizz. The ultimate in cocktail indulgence.For a decadent experience in Bristol’s best kept secret, it has to be The Milk Thistle…
Dinner at Flinty RedAnd finally, keep it simple with an elegant dinner date at Flinty Reds. This wine tasting and award winning restaurant, change their menu daily and have a large selection of wine by the glass and carafe. They take their food and wine VERY seriously, so expect a full on dining experience, perfect for that special date.
So now you know where to go, head to Flirtify and find your date!
