Hi Mums! I am visiting Bristol from Toronto, Canada with my 15 year old daughter and we were hoping to find somewhere fun to watch the Royal Wedding tomorrow. Was surprised today to find that most pubs, restaurants etc. are not really showing it - the one I checked (the Social) was, but through crowd might be a bit rowdy. Any suggestions of where we could watch/where there is a street party etc. ? Have seen the visit Bristol site but hard to sort out not knowing area. Thanks for suggestions!
Thank you! I did see that..just wasn't sure where Ashton Court was (and isn't 12 too late to start watching?). I think the Cabot Circus events are directed to little kids? Was hoping for a quiet-ish pub that had a party around this..but maybe Bristol is not that into wedding? My daughter wanted to buy some wedding souvenirs today and seem to be none on offer...
Thanks ladies! Seems kind of weird because in Canada/US seems everyone is getting up incredbly early to watch, holding parties that requure fascinators (!) etc...interesting that people (at least outside of London) seem less into the wedding..
I think they are showing it on the big screen in Millennium Square (next to We the Curious (science museum) and the Planetarium. They usually put deck chairs out for people to watch things like Wimbledon.
Not sure where you are in Bristol but I walked through John Lewis (department store) at Cribbs Causeway today and they seemed to have some items for the Royal Wedding - there's one in Cabot Circus as well I think if you are near either of those place.
Thank you! We ended up watching the wedding in a pub, but can't remember the name..had a big theatre room..was just down from the men's barber shop that says it is a creche for men? anyway was a great stop. Was surprised that it was just me and my daughter for a while, a few people joined us later. Loved Bristol by the way!
