​A foodie guide to Bristol City Centre

The centre of Bristol typifies the city. A hodge-podge of architecture with differing themes from various eras, but hugely creative and distinctly individual. Where art adorns walls, back street alleys bustle with local businesses, and at certain points you get to see the city, countryside and harbour in the same view. 

If you're new to the city and looking for a few beers, King Street is a must-visit. A large concentration of pubs, restaurants and outdoor drinking space make up the street with literally hundreds of beers and ciders to whet your whistle with. All set on a cobbled street with  beautiful architecture around you. If you're heading there, get yourself to The Beer Emporium - a pub that's in a vaulted cellar that has an ever-changing beer selection on (plus a well-stocked bottle shop up above). 

There are several marketplaces running around the city at any given day. The most famous is St Nicholas Market - a permanent marketplace that's existed since 1743 has over 60 stalls within its winding path. Always busy and full of aromas of the local food, you can find some incredible Bristolian streetfood here. 

Head to the harbouside for some lush waterside drinking and dining. Mud Dock, with its elevated terrace offering views of the harbour and excellent eclectic menu is a great place to sit and watch the world go by. Arnolfini has an amazing outside space to watch the boats pass on a sunny day and you can sometimes catch some live music as artists and buskers play to the lazing masses around the area. 

Just across from Arnolfini is the newest area to Bristol, Wapping Wharf. This new development has brought with it Cargo, an independent hub for food and drink. Particular favourites include Lovett Pies & Bertha's Pizza - both of which make some incredible food. 

If you're looking for Cider, look no further than The Apple - a boat at the end of King Street that offers an array of local ciders whilst being able to enjoy the views of the floating harbour (they also do a banging ploughman's).
