We just found out that we will be in Bristol for three weeks beginning this Sat., Oct 15th while my husband is on a job assignment. I will have all day to explore the city and surrounding areas and would like to know what I could do to occupy my time. We are currently booked at the Marriott Royal but I may change that. We are also interested in pubs and restaurants in the area. We haven't decided on whether we will hire a car or use public transportation. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
