Local Attractions

Rockleaze House is ideally situated for visiting Bristol, Gloucestershire, Somerset, South Wales, and the Southwest in general.

We are in one of Britain’s biggest and most bustling cities, set amid one of the most beautiful regions in the world with rolling green hills, stately homes, nature, sporting activities from football, rugby, and cricket to trampolining, water sports, and even cheese rolling. That’s not all, here’s some of the highlights:

The Mall at Cribbs Causeway

Only one mile from our B&B, the Mall at Cribbs Causeway is the region’s largest shopping centre with every major chain imaginable, a full range of restaurants, cinemas and other activities including the largest trampolining park in Europe and home to the world famous Concorde at Aerospace Bristol.

Shopping in Bristol

Bristol has always been a great place to go shopping, but since Cabot Circus was built, there’s now a greater range of high end options, including great restaurants and a luxury cinema. If you’re looking for something a little different, try Gloucester Road’s diverse offerings or head up Park Street to Clifton.
