Valentine's Day in Bristol

 

Where better to spend Valentine’s Day 2014 than in Bristol, recognized as one of Europe’s best cities. Why not make the weekend extra special by staying with Clifton Hotels and dining in one of our superb restaurants – the ever-popular Racks Bar & Kitchen or the epicurean Square Kitchen.

 

 

The Berkeley Square Hotel has teamed up with the Square Kitchen to offer a special one-night-only Valentine's package, to include overnight hotel accommodation on Friday the 14th, a bottle of prosecco in your room on arrival, a special 5-course taster menu for 2, and full English breakfast for 2.

 

Bristol is a great V-Day destination for couples. Make a weekend of it and go stargazing at Ashton Court, watch the sunset over Clifton Suspension Bridge, find ‘Cheep Romance’ at Bristol Zoo Gardens, visit At-Bristol’s planetarium for After Hours: LOVE, see Jane Eyre at the Bristol Old Vic theatre, or treat yourselves to a couples massage with the Lido.

 

Meanwhile, Clifton offers a variety of great independent vendors to satisfy your gift needs, from chocolates to cupcakes and flowers to trinkets. One of the loveliest flower shops, Lisa Elliott Floral Design, can be found in Clifton Village just off Princess Victoria Street.

 

February 14th doesn’t have to be all about romance and roses. It’s a great day to celebrate friendship and all the special people in your life. Catching up with good friends over afternoon tea is one of the best ways to while away an afternoon and is a fun antidote to the dreaded “S.A.D.” flipside of Valentine’s.   

 

In Finland, for instance, Valentine's Day is called Ystävänpäivä which translates into "Friend's Day.” As the name indicates, this day is more about remembering all your friends, not only your significant other. In Estonia Valentine's Day is called Sõbrapäev, which has the same meaning.
