Imagine a day spent hunting out the secret nooks and crannies of Bristol. We’ll be peeking behind backstage doors, exploring converted ships and old railways, spying into hubs of local creatives and local government. And to top it off we’ll be travelling from place to place via a comfortable, leisurely cycle, with an experienced guide, friendly group, and a stop for lunch.
Sound good? Next weekend we’re launching a very special one-off tour. We’re delighted to be partnering with Bristol Doors Open Day to offer a tour that will explore a selection of the city’s sites that are throwing their doors open for one weekend only. It’s a once-a-year chance to look behind closed doors and discover the city’s hidden treasures in a celebration of Bristol’s history, architecture, and culture.
The tour will stop off at a range of sites on a mostly-flat route around the Harbour. We’ll be finding the best spots for you on the day, but they may include Underfall Yard, Bristol City Hall, Spike Island, Puppet Place, M-Shed, Brunel’s Other Vessel, Wapping Wharf, and more. (But keep in mind that Bristol Doors Open gets up to fifty thousand visitors! We’re going to do our best to see the lot, but will also try to keep you away from boring queues.)
It’s a great tour to come on with friends, family, or kids over the age of fourteen. And if you’ve got a bike but still want to join in, we’ve got limited discount places for people who want to BYOB (that’s bring your own bike. We’ve got to be careful not to wobble off the roads). Get in fast!
A portion of the profits of every sale will go towards supporting Bristol Doors Open and other great projects like Doors Open Day.
