Celebrate Apple Day in Bristol, the city of Cider


Experience West Country flavours and celebrate the humble apple with Bristol's fantastic cider scene.

Apple day traditionally falls on October 21st and is all about celebrating all things apple-tastic. Bristol’s love affair with apples is so strong, both in their solid and fermented liquid form, that locals have fashioned festivals and even championships to rejoice in this humble fruit.

With apples at their best during autumn, October is the perfect month to visit Bristol for some serious cider tasting. Delve into Bristol Cider Shop for a bottle from a nearby farm, regular sampling, a cider hamper and expert advice on all things Scrumpy.  Tickle your cider-loving taste buds further and head for The Apple, bobbing up and down on Bristol Harbourside - the converted barge has over 40 varieties of cider. Sober up – if only momentarily - with a West Country Porker pizza at The Stable accompanied by a cider tasting board, with five ciders served in thirds.

End the day with live music at Coronation Tap in Clifton Village but watch out for its infamous Exhibition cider. Cheers!
