Anyone suggest a good vantage point for the balloons in Bristol tomorrow?

We're stopping off at the Holiday Inn near Parkway station tonight en route to Dorset not realising it was the balloon fiesta. Would love to see them go up in the morning. How far afield can you see them from?

If you can get to the suspension bridge area, clifton/redland you should get a good view. You can't drive across the bridge I don't think as closed during fiesta but good vantage point. The Avon Gorge Hotel has a huge beer garden and good food, qite child friendly so could try there if around for the launch at six

Thanks witcs we're more likely to be looking at the 6am launch as the idea of the stop off is to avoid the traffic. Should be easier trffic at that time too.
