Countdown To Blue Earth '23 -
10-12 Oct — Bristol
Busy days require calm evenings in order to rest, recover and recharge to go again tomorrow.
With the Blue Earth Summit being split over a few days, guests may choose to split their time between the city centre or further afield towards our day 3 venue, The Wave.
Staying in the centre of Bristol means that you’ll be within walking distance of our main venue, PropYard, and have a wide variety of options for food and drinks. We have listed a few of our favourite accommodation options below.
We recommend booking accommodation at LEONARDO or the MARRIOTT. If you want to stay closer to Bristol Temple Meads train station, the IBIS is a 4 minute walk to the train station and an 8 minute walk to the Propyard.
If you’re looking for a higher-end choice of accommodation, we recommend we recommend Hotel du Vin (27 minute walk to PropYard). This will need to be booked over the phone, and mention the Blue Earth Summit. Ask for the Central hotel 0330 016 0390.
If you would like to stay a little further from the city centre and closer to The Wave, MOLLIES is a fantastic new hotel brand and great value. Use the code ‘BLUEEARTH22’ for a discount when booking.
Mollie’s also offers a great food option for anyone leaving The Wave after Day 3 events. The retro- American roadside pit-stop serves up classics such as all-day eggs, double cheeseburgers, hot wings ribs and rotisserie chicken. There’s also plenty of veggie and vegan options including plant-based burgers. Order a grab and go here. Book a table to eat here.
Travelling by Train: Propyard is a twelve minute walk over the river from Bristol Temple Meads train station. If you want to grab a snack enroute, Hart’s bakery is on the left side of the station as you exit, offering artisan bread, homemade pastries, pies and cakes.
Travelling by Car
From the South: If you’re driving up from the South on the M5 and fancy a quick dip, Clevedon Marine Lake boats the largest infinity pool in the South West and is located just off the motorway at junction 20.
Take the country route into Bristol for a more scenic experience by joining the B3128 and enter along the River Avon. Alternatively, you can take Junction 19 and enjoy views of the River Avon across Bristol Suspension Bridge with a charge of £1, cash or card as you cross.
From the North: If you’re coming from the North, St George’s Park, Netham Park Pavilion and Eastville Park are all enroute, offering green spaces to relax and rejuvenate. The Garden of Easton is a plant filled, rustic destination for artful meals and drinks, with locally sourced ingredients. It can be found on the North side of the river. Just leave at Junction 2, The Eastville Interchange.
