Food Scene
Fabulous sourdough and overnight loaves, and we especially love the Portuguese custard tarts. If you can't quite make it home from the shops, they do the best coffee in town.

The best tastiest, moist falafels I've ever had! They get their special soft pita breads all the way from London, and the sauces and pickles/chili/chutney/salsa are not to be missed! Complete bargain and you can also buy the cooked falafel balls themselves to take away in large quantities for home use.

The local pub in Nailsworth obviously has local beers and often has live music, including bluegrass or sometime someone just happens to have an Irish fiddle with them and strikes up a tune!

Bath is a beautiful and fun place to visit, even when it's busy. We recommend the Park and Ride at Lansdown, and go early.

My beloved University years at Oxford make me very biased towards this beautiful town! However it does have more than stunning architecture. The Ashmolean Museum, the Museum of Modern Art, Blackwells Bookshop, the crepe stall, the Covered Market, and of course for Harry Potter fans: The Bodleian Library, Christ Church College, and other famous University of Oxford buildings used in the movies.

Our favourite of all the local towns, Bristol is a brilliant place, with the harbourside, the museums, galleries and the student vibe. It's at its best on a sunny day obviously, and get there early as with everywhere in the summer!

Birthplace of Shakespeare, need we say more? For children there is the fantastic Mary Arden Farm, where the great man grew up, it is very interactive. Of course there is also the Royal Shakespeare Company offering outstanding performances on stage. It is a lovely drive up the A46.

Dog and child-friendly, this beautiful and precious place is great to either go deep into the woods and explore, or just potter around the edges, have tea in the cafe, let the little ones loose (one side is dog-free) and enjoy the myriad of awesome tree specimens. Entry fees.

Definitely NOT a museum! Interactive science and technology heaven for children, teens and adults. It's pricey to get in, but take a picnic and hang out around the lovely neighbouring harbourside and visit Bristol's other great sights.
