It’s official: Bristol is the best place to bring up a child!

by Sarah Wirth |

Bristolians have all the reason to be smug right now, as Bristol has been crowned the best place in the UK for a child to grow up, based on activities to do there.

With innovative activities and quirky trends, such as parkour and toddler raves, kids in Bristol have at least three times more activities to choose from than any other city with on average 46 events per 1000 children.

In second and third place were Liverpool and Glasgow with Manchester coming last in the poll.

The data was released by Hoop who based the information on 158,883 events happening all over the nation and the 8.7 million searches for events for children 0-11.

The city offers a broad range of activities suitable from adrenaline junkies, education lovers, computer whiz kids and kids who just want to put on their dancing shoes! These different activities have doubled and even trebled in the past year.

Here is a list of 6 of the best activities for you and your little ones in Bristol:
