One of the highlights of the Summer for me is the Bristol Harbour Festival which happens towards the end of July each year. Bristol Harbour Festival is one of the UK’s biggest public festivals and celebrates the importance of Bristol’s Harbour and Docks. Every year it gets bigger and bigger and this year’s was the best yet. Which I can imagine was due to the absolutely gorgeous weather we had this year.
We decided to go on the train as parking would have been a nightmare with all of the roads closed off. And we took Milo for his first trip on the train which he loved. I can never believe how relaxed Milo is doing all of these new things, he just goes along with everything!
The are always various different events happening throughout the city with multiple stages, from the “Music Stage” at the Amphitheatre, to the “Brunel Stage” at the SS Great Britain and “Centre Stage” at Cascade Steps. We made our way to Queen Square which is where all of the Food Stalls are – and obviously my favourite part of Bristol Harbour Festival.
After walking around all of the food vendors, I decided on a Spinach and Feta Tart with Mustard Potato Salad and Cous Cous for my lunch. Sam went for a hog dog bigger than his head. These meals were huge. And you can bet we ate a lot more throughout the day. From Chocolate Brownies to Pick ‘n’ Mix and the gorgeous Muffin pictured above. Mine was white chocolate and raspberry and was delicious.
We had a walk around the city to let our food go down and I got Sam took some photos of me in my new dress. This was kindly gifted to me from Angeleye and I am in love. I can tell I’ll be getting so much wear out of it. It can be dressed up or down and I have had so many compliments on it already. It fits true to size and can be ordered here – I cannot get over the quality for the price. I’m already eyeing up some of the other dresses Angeleye have in stock – including this beauty in a similar style which I think will be perfect for Autumn/Winter parties. There’s honestly so much on their site that I love.
Once we’d finished our little photo session we carried on walking along the waterfront, stopping to try every single bit of food on offer before grabbing some cans of Thatcher’s from Sainburys and sitting at the Harbour to enjoy them whilst watching the sun go down. A perfect end to a perfect day. Bristol Harbour Festival is on 17th-19th July 2020 and I’d really suggest visiting for the day – or even make a weekend of it if you can – there’s plenty of other things to do in and around Bristol.
Did you go to the Bristol Harbour Festival this year? Which part was your favourite?
