A Walk to Ashton Court

Red Deer Park, Ashton Court

Sometimes a Saturday afternoon stroll with friends is the perfect way to refresh after the working/studying week. After a 3pm 'brunch', we pulled on our trainers and set off for the grounds of Ashton Court.

We wandered through the red deer park, stopping to admire the deer sitting just a few metres away from us. Walking around Bristol, if you know where to look, there are a remarkable number of animals to be found- 'Goat Gully' at the Downs is another spot I've discovered since living here. 

Seeing as this was a leisurely activity and not a hiking trip, we sat down to gossip and admire the views across Bristol. Not everything was about being relaxed and grown up though- we finished up with a wheelbarrow race, as you do. (Which left me with aching stomach muscles the next day. If you want a good workout, wheelbarrow racing is the way to go!)

Living in a city has so many benefits, but I'm always grateful for the green spaces further out, a chance to get away from the hustle and bustle of the shops and restaurants, and just enjoy the scenery.

Where are your favourite spots to just get away from it all once in a while?

  3. That sounds like a lovely day! I've recently moved to a new city so I'm still learning all the best places to go. It's crazy how intuitive you get through, I went through a really weird route and got exactly where I needed to be in half the time!
