One of my favourite places to visit in Bris­tol is St Nicholas Mar­ket in the old Corn Exchange, one of the old­est parts of the city. I was in town on my bike last week to run some errands, and couldn’t resist pop­ping in.There’s an incred­i­ble food hall filled with inde­pen­dent stalls from around the world (and Bris­tol!); fresh smooth­ies, hot choco­late, Moroc­can, Ital­ian, South African, Jamaican, and Bristol’s famous Piem­i­nis­ter pies — it’s amaz­ing. When I worked in town, my offices were right next door so you can guess where I was at lunchtime!

Tucked behind the food is a maze of inde­pen­dent shops, linked by lit­tle cob­bled streets, sell­ing records, books, vin­tage clothes, sweets, jew­ellery and, my favourite, the knit­ting and hab­er­dash­ery shop. This spot is well known to Bris­to­lians, and a must-see if you’re ever vis­it­ing the city.
