Christmas in Bristol this year is bigger than Father Christmas's mince pie stash, brighter than the shiniest bauble on the tree, better than Christmas Dinner with all the trimmings and more jolly than a workshop full of elves. We have the best Christmas shopping in the South West, ice skating, traditional markets, fairs, world class theatre productions and a whole lot of Christmas cheer.
The Christmas lights in Mousehole are a truly beautiful sight. Sea serpents, fishing boats and whales are lit up in the harbour with an impressive centrepiece of a millennium Celtic cross on St Clement Island, generated by a wind generator. Follow the winding string of lanterns through the streets. Some are barely wide enough to walk through. Browse through the gift shops, and stop for a rest in one of the local restaurants and café’s.
