Are you flying into Bristol Airport and looking for fun day trips out in the local area? Then we’ve got you covered. Here at Easirent, we have carefully selected some of the best days trips in the local area, which will allow you to make the most of your Easirent hire car. All you have to do is pick up your hire car at our Bristol Airport branch, and hit the road… Oh, and get your road trip playlist at the ready! Enjoy!
1. Chepstow Races and the Wye Valley
Pick up your Easirent hire car from our Bristol Airport branch and head to Chepstow. Located just a short drive over the Severn Bridge, Chepstow is Wales’ premier thoroughbred racing course which is used for flat and jump racing. Located in the stunning Wye Valley, you can make the most of your hire car and explore the local area while you’re there. Opened in 1926, Chepstow Racecourse was transformed into RAF Chepstow during World War Two.
You can’t visit Bristol and not pay a visit to it’s beautiful and unique neighbour, Bath. Famous the world over for its thermal spas, Bath is home to relaxing, natural hot springs that pull in tourists from the world over. Designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site, it’s definitely worth a trip to the town in your Easirent hire car. Make sure that you make time to visit the Royal Crescent, one of Bath’s most iconic series of buildings, which has been featured in many period dramas including the BBC adaptation of Jane Austin’s Persuasion.
One of the most famous pre-historic monuments in the world, Stonehenge is still shrouded in mystery and many historians have debated over how it got to be where it is today. Take a trip in your Easirent hire car to see the Neolithic construction for yourself, but make sure that you book a ticket in advance, as otherwise you won’t be able to gain access to the stones.
4. Wells Cathedral
Otherwise known as The Cathedral Church of Saint Andrew, Wells Cathedral is a stunning medieval cathedral on the landscape. Located just a short drive from our Easirent pick up point at Bristol Airport, Wells Cathedral was built in 1175 on the site of a former church which was constructed in 705. Offering unparalleled views across the city, it’s worth a trip around the cathedral’s interior just to take in the beautifully intricate mouldings and carvings.
5. Cheddar Gorge
Located in the county of Somerset, Cheddar Gorge is Britain’s biggest limestone gorge and you will find it in the Mendip Hills. Explore the cliffs that tower at a mighty 450ft tall, or take a trip underground for some adventure caving.
