Details

Starting from Colston Hall we head uphill via the old route to Wales, through St Michael's and Kingsdown, and down to Hamilton House, http://www.hamiltonhouse.org/ Peoples Republic of Stokes Croft, http://www.prsc.org.uk/

touching on some more Georgian history as well as lots of Art before Lunch at Pieminster.

The Stokes Croft shop is now a licensed restaurant with a more varied menu including puddings and starters, but still offers all the original pies.

We then explore more Georgian Squares and Urban Art, following via Glass Walk into an area where desenters lived worked and prayed, including Quakers Friars and the New Rooms. Via the revived Bear Pit we head for St James and Bridewell, then follow the line of original town walls, for a coffee stop at The Birdcage on Claire Street, http://www.birdcagebristol.com/

heading back into Old City, http://bristololdcity.co.uk/

We explore more corners of the oldest parts of Bristol, and look at SEE NO EVIL urban art, http://www.seenoevilbristol.co.uk/

from a different perspective, crossing the Frome Valley back to Colston Hall. The total route of this walk is less than six miles. There will be a little bit of talk for some of the more historic bits, but it is definitely more walk than talk with lots of photo opportunities.
