    Not sure what the best and most reasonable things are but they’ve been moved to tier 2

    What are tier two rules?

    • You can't mix indoors with anyone apart from members of your household or bubble
    • You can meet in a group of up to six outside - including in a private garden, or a public place
    • Shops, gyms and personal care services (such as hairdressing) can reopen
    • Pubs and bars can only open if they serve substantial meals. Alcohol can be served with that meal
    • Pubs and restaurants must shut at 23:00 GMT, with last orders at 22:00
    • Sports events in stadiums can be attended by up to 2,000 spectators, or 50% capacity (whichever is smaller)
    • Collective worship, weddings and outdoor sports can resume (with restrictions)
    • Non-essential foreign travel allowed, subject to quarantine rules
    • People are advised not to travel to and from tier three areas
    Life is like a bath, the longer you are in it the more wrinkly you become.

    The museum is closed for lockdown till 2nd Feb and so is the M Shed. Unfortunately the theaters are closed by you can subscribe to their YouTube channel and watch online
    Brunel's SS Great Britain will reopen fully on Saturday 26 December through until Sunday 3 January. You will need to book in advance but you can walk around the docks and look. The Matthew is also moored there and the MV Balmoral.
    St Peters the church bombed in the 2nd WW remains as a memorial to the bombing of the city in the centre
    Walk across the suspension bridge, visit the cathedral. Visit the zoo but book a time slot in advance.

    The only normal people you know are the ones you don’t know very well

    Walk round the downs, at the far end you have the sea walls, there's also a slidey rock but maybe less fun if you haven't children with you. 
    From there you can walk either to the suspension bridge or into Clifton Village, The White Lion has good views of the bridge if you are stopping to eat.
    Lots of nice outdoor places for walks snuff mills and Blaise Castle estate are two popular ones.

    We loved looking for Banksy. There are walks you can find on the web that take you on a Banksy trail plus another new one recently.
