A Day Trip To Bristol: Pulled Pork and City Docks

I feel embarrassed saying it, but I’ve never been to Bristol before. I took a day off work today and drove down there with my boyfriend from Birmingham. We ate, drank and walked around by the docks. It’s been such a sunny, relaxing day. I can already feel work is going to be super hard tomorrow morning…


I’ve never seen street art quite as creative as this in England before. Every corner you turn, there is some new imagery to be seen. Josh and I both questioned as to how it is actually produced. Do they get really tall ladders? Do they use one of those lift things? It’s a complete and utter mystery to me…


We stopped off at St Nicholas Market on recommendation from a friend. We were not disappointed with our lunch from Street Food vendors – Grillstock. They smoke the pork for 18 hours, leaving it with a dark, rich and smoky taste. We both agreed it was the best pulled pork we have tried in ages. I even chose mine to be accompanied with some gooey Mac ‘N’ Cheese (my new favourite meal I must add). The server said it was delicious and he definitely wasn’t wrong. I’ve heard a lot of good things about their food from a lot of comments today on my instagram, so if you’re ever in Bristol, it’s a must try!


After a lovely walk through the town and a brief stop off to grab coffee, we snacked on sweet treats and took a stroll down to the nearest docks. I spotted a little westie on the walkway and couldn’t resist getting a picture. I wish I could have bought my four westies with me today, they would have loved it.


The air somewhat feels cleaner down South, and I’m so glad the sun came out for us today. I felt like a real little tourist with my backpack and camera, but I’d do this again a heartbeat. We drove up Park Street and saw loads of little cute restaurants and past the Clifton Suspension Bridge.  Where else is good to go in Bristol in case I decide to return in the near future? Please do let me know!…
