Overdue thanks guys for the replies. We are now officially Bristolians and loving it! Looking forward to getting stuck into the local toddler scene. Our neighbours came round with home-made cakes yesterday to welcome us. Just like Ramsay Street, and very very different to London!
We've just moved to the same part of Bristol and there is plenty to choose from for little ones. By far our favourite activity has been Gymboree, the parents are all lovely, a really good mix of people and we have made quite a few friends.
Good luck with the move, it's a great area so I'm sure you'll love it!
know the feeling - we moved from London a year ago! I have 2.6 yr old and also due with no 2 in Oct. I'm not in Westbury Park but its seems like a really nice area. As tedmundo says, the zoo is great - we are members and go alot. Lots of lovely parks and Gloucester Rd area seems packed with things to do, lovely cafes etc. I'm always up for a cuppa and meeting some mums so give me a shout if you fancy getting together when the dreaded move is done.
We're due to move to Westbury Park from London in mid-August with 20mo ds and I'm due with no2 at the start of October. Anyone got any tips for things to do with toddlers and/or newborns in and around the area, other than the usual local playgroups and library sessions? Alternatively, if anyone has kids a similar age or is due at a similar time and would like to meet up for a playdate/coffee/gin let me know, I'm keen to make new friends!
