Get out and about in Bristol – or go hunting for an alien at We the Curious's virtual planetarium!
Check out three novel things to do in Bristol with your family or housemates – or friends, post-lockdown!
Get ready to ride
Ashton Court has to be one of the city’s most favourite of places with oodles of space for you and your family – and it’s only a couple of miles from the centre of Bristol.
Why not try the Avon Timberland Trail? It’s free and is suitable for ages 5+, with different courses available depending on experience. And if you need to bring the car, parking is just £1.

Go on a tree trail
Discover the names of the UK’s trees with the Woodland Trust’s Tree ID app. It’s free to use and provides you with a handy A-Z pocket guide to the UK’s native and non-native trees. No matter what the season, use nature’s clues such as leaves, bark, twigs, buds, flowers or fruit to identify your trees – and this will keep your children entertained as they learn.
To download, just go to the App Store or Google Play.
