Castle Park contains the ruins of medieval Bristol Castle’s keep and walls.

For the more adventurous, try your hand at axe-throwing! At Whistle Punks Axe Throwing, situated on All Saints Street, you can spend 70 minutes learning a sport you never knew you needed in your life until now! Refuel at the in-house Pizzarova restaurant afterwards, for the most delicious made-to-order sourdough pizzas.
Casamia is guaranteed to impress. With a Michelin star and 20 courses, your date and you are assured to have an incredible meal. Casamia admits they won’t cater to specific dietary requirements, therefore if you don’t like certain ingredients, you skip a course. If a music track comes on that you love, you are urged to get up and dance! At £180 per person and only one menu, a memorable night is in store.
Assuming that Casamia may be out of your price range and you don’t want a loan for a night out, there are tens of other outlets that offer tasty and tempting dishes. The Pipal Tree serves Punjabi food with a twist and is highly recommended by many. Turtle Bay offers Caribbean fayre and divine cocktails with a late-night bar. The Left-Handed Giant is an outstanding brew-pub and offers wood-fired vegetarian and vegan pizzas.
Cider tasting sessions and tours are a fairly new addition to the Bristol scene. You get to sample some of them, accompanied by food, and you will learn about different types and methods of production.

The iconic King Street has many more bars and eateries to visit if you don’t wish your night to end too soon!
With many more activities available in Bristol, such as bowling, Cabot Tower, escape rooms, mini-golf and a planetarium, your first rendezvous will not be the last.
