Evening Harbour Cruise

The best way to see the city of Bristol is on board our private ELC Bristol party boat. Great music, a couple of pub stops and a free firework display. Perfect. 


The Gower Peninsula

We had a fabulous day out in the beautiful Gower peninsula, Britain's first Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) located in South Wales. After a stop for lunch at the magically-named King Arthur Hotel, we went to the spectacular Rhossili Bay, which was recently voted the third best beach in Europe by Trip Advisor. 


Welcome Evening

We were sad to say goodbye to so many fellow students last week, but it was wonderful to welcome so many new faces this week! We all went for a free drink at our favourite local pub, Channings, a great place to make new friends. 


Afternoon Walk and Fish 'n' Chips

After school, we went for a lovely stroll along the famous Avon Gorge, a spectacular river valley just a short distance from ELC Bristol. It was great to get some fresh air and build up our appetites for fish 'n' chips from the award-winning Clifton Fish Bar afterwards. Delicious!



A very popular activity is Karaoke at a local bar called Alter Ego. It's free, great fun and Andrew, the Social Programme Organiser, even managed to get us a free drink when we arrived!
