Holiday where you live and explore different parts of Bristol through its food, sights and activities
Bristol-based food and drink discovery platform Wriggle has launched a new ‘Foodcation’ campaign in a bid to encourage Bristol residents to ‘holiday where you live’ this summer and support independent food and drink venues across the city.
Wriggle app and website users can access a series of unique tours across Bristol neighbourhoods, made in collaboration with independent restaurants, cafés and bars. These self-guided tours include walking or cycling routes of the neighbourhood, with regular stops for food and drink at popular local venues included in the price of the ticket.
There are six different tours, running daily through summer, and each is self-guided, but when purchased you will receive an information booklet (with interesting facts, detailed route instructions and further recommendations of places to eat, drink and see) and a postcard from the tour. Here’s what you can expect:
1. The Harbourside Food Tour
This follows the famous harbourside walking loop and leads you to a few hidden pieces of history along the way. As with any good day out, it includes Fish & Chips from Salt & Malt, and an ice-cream from Oliver’s Ice cream (both in Wapping Wharf).

Perhaps the longest tour, this is the perfect day out for both Bristol residents and visitors alike. Hop on a bike (or hire one from Bristol Cycle Shack or Compton Bicycles at Temple Meads) for a self-guided cycle on the brilliant Bristol to Bath cycle path.
The route begins at the new Bakehouse café and bakery in St Phillips, before leading you to Warmley Waiting Rooms and onwards to Dough for pizza and beers in Bath.
