Yeah, go to Temple Meads, then take the number 8/9 bus - about £1.50 will see you travelling up the steep folly that is Park Street (keep an eye out on your right at the bottom of Park Street as you cross the short bridge past College Green - some work by a famous bloke on a wall...). Get off at the next stop at the top, outside the 8th Wonder of the World, The Berkeley - the wonder is how Wetherspoons keep attracting me to such a sh1thole ;D The museum is directly opposite, next to the little building with the tower (Wills Memorial Building - where I went to uni!)
My train goes to Bristol Parkway. How do I get to the exhib / how long will it take me?
Havent been to Brizzle by train for a few years now, and never been to Parkway.
You'll either need to get a ticket on to Temple Meads - don't even think about travelling on with only a ticket to Parkway, as Temple Meads has ticket barriers on exit - or get a cab to Clifton (about £10-15 I reckon). Might be buses, never tried.
Re. cheap accommodation, there's a few overpriced dirty B&Bs in Clifton, but your best bet is somewhere like Travelodge or the Ibis around the Harbourside/Anchor Road - both only 15 mins walk (very uphill...) from the museum.
For those wishing to take a look round all the artwork from upfest last weekend here's the map again... The garage location will be open between 11am till 5pm tomorrow (Sunday) for everyone to see the end results of the indoor paint session...
I booked the Washington Hotel, just found out you can probably walk from there to the exhibition.. (checked google maps: a 6 min. walk!)
paid 120 gbp for two nights in a twin room for me and a friend.. so 30 gbp per night seems fair to me.. even traditional English breakfast is included but I think I might skip that..
I carved my initials in some girls behind[br][br]FS: 2 x Martin Whatson OG. 2 x Adam Smithmada OG. PM for pictures.[br][br]Looking to buy: Adam Neate streetpiece, Pizzabox or early canvas. Please get in contact!
Marriot royal is a nice hotel at the bottom of park street but not the cheepest, yo yo burger on the triangle gets my vote for fast food the scream pub (big yellow one) does a big breakfast all day or oppos cafe is chilled halfway down park st don't know the name but the Chinese next to the triangle kabab house is amazing java night club ain't too bad either down the bottom of park st
Thanks for all the advice. I'm finally off to rainy Bristol tomorrow. We will not be denied.
