Best things to do in Bristol this Christmas

Christmas is just around the corner so we’ve put together a short guide on what to do in and around Bristol this festive season to get you feeling merry!

Christmas Markets

Christmas MarketThe streets running through the Bristol Shopping Quarter between Broadmead and Cabot Circus will once again transform into a winter wonderland when the Christmas Markets return from 11 November until 26 December 2016. The delightfully festive wooden chalets are perfect for browsing handcrafted and unique Christmas gifts as well as enjoying seasonal food and drink including, mulled wine and traditional Bratwurst. Visit one of the many bars during the evening and you’re guaranteed a jolly good Christmas night out! And if you’re feeling a little worse for wear the next morning, pop into EF MEDISPA Bristol for a quick IV Vitamin Infusion in our Drip & Chill lounge, sure to have you feeling yourself in no time.

Clifton Village Christmas Lights

With gorgeous boutiques, swanky wine bars and some of the nicest restaurants in Bristol, including The Ivy Clifton Brasserie which opened recently, Clifton Village is the place to be this winter. Conveniently located just down the road from our Whiteladies Road clinic, you can head there after visiting us for a Quicklift, our non-surgical face lift, bound to have you feeling fresh faced and youthful. If you wish to see the turning on of Clifton Village’s Christmas lights, it will take place on Wednesday 9 November. However, if you can’t make this we highly recommend taking a wander around the village at some point over the festive period, you won’t be disappointed.

Ice RinkAt-Bristol’s Christmas Ice Rink

Give the At-Bristol Christmas Ice Rink in Millennium Square a whirl from 5 November until 3 January. With real ice and twinkling lights, set under the giant bauble of the Planetarium, this once-a-year treat is a real Christmas must! Sessions are available throughout the day with special disco sessions on an evening for those looking to throw shapes on Bristol’s most magical dancefloor.

Christmas at the Spiegeltent

For the best party in town this December head to Christmas at the Spiegeltent! 2016 will be the pop-up venue’s 5th year in Waterfront Square on Bristol Harbourside and the line-up of live music, cabaret, comedy, Christmas parties, markets and much more looks stronger than ever. Visit from 25 November to 31 December.

Bristol Hippodrome

Bespoke FacialIt wouldn’t be Christmas without a spot of Panto and this year Torvil and Dean are taking to the stage at Bristol Hippodrome in a magical Cinderella Pantomime. If that doesn’t take your fancy, performances of Peter Pan and The Snow Queen will be on at the Old Vic, while Colston Hall has a whole programme of music and comedy shows including Black Stone Cherry, The Catherine Tate Show, Ne-Yo, Reeves & Mortimer and Christmas with The Overtones. Or if you’re feeling like you need a bit of ‘me time’ in between all your busy Christmas plans, then come and visit us for a relaxing Bespoke Facial. Perfect if you need an hour out from excitable children, you can lay back and relax as our expert therapists work their magic, leaving your skin looking hydrated and rejuvenated.
