After traveling down to Cardiff Central I met Vicki and we caught the train To Bristol. We had a nice walk around which could have been much better if it had not been raining (although it was only light rain)
We spent a few hours looking around before heading back to Cardiff, It was nowhere near enough time but it gave me a Chance to cross another of the UK's more interesting pubs off my list, The Hatchet Inn.

One place i really wanted to visit was The Hatchet Inn and it's ancient door, does it really have a covering of human skin under it's tar coating??

Bristol first received a Royal Charter in 1155 and it was granted County status in 1373.
For 500 years it ranked amongst the top three English cities after London until the industrial Revolution saw the rise of Manchester, Liverpool and Birmingham.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Lots to see around the city!
  • Cons:For us the weather could have been better
  • In a nutshell:A great city full of history

    Gareth, lovely little page about Bristol here. I have heard many good things about the city and crossed it several times by train, but never really visited it properly. The Hatchet Inn is definitely on my list for Bristol. :-)
