Bristol is the urban jewel of South-West England, and the very best venues the city has to offer can be yours to host whatever kind of event you can imagine. At HeadBox we pride ourselves in finding the unusual, the excellent and the beautiful spaces – when it comes to Bristol, we’re spoilt for choice.

Planning a Bristol-based event? Want to invest your special occasion with some Bristolian charm? There is a swathe of party venues, meeting rooms, private dining rooms and more to discover and book today.

Find Bristol’s historic beauty

Bristol is a historic city with no shortage of stunning venues. Lots of the Victorian splendour of the city has been re-invigorated as spaces that you can enjoy. Take The Old Station, for example. This Grade I listed building was designed by Isambard Kingdom Brunel himself (famed for his nearby Clifton suspension bridge). Though you’d be hard-pressed to get a train, you can host one stunning conference or wedding in the converted station. Now that will get people talking.

Think outside the box with HeadBox

Contemporary Bristol has a reputation for doing things slightly differently (and, if we’re honest, slightly better). The country’s greenest city challenges notions of the urban sprawl, and its plethora of events options doesn’t drop the baton. Where else could you party poolside before tucking into a great meal? Or enjoy a drink in a quirky bar only a stone's throw from a historic marina? For those who want their private event to be unlike anything else, trust HeadBox to bring the best of Bristol.

Getting there, getting everywhere

Planning an event always requires a bit of travel. For those not lucky enough to reside in Bristol, getting there can be an uncertain factor. Luckily the transport links in Bristol are up to scratch: the city boasts its very own airport, while Temple Meads station can get you in and out of Bristol without a headache.

Spheres of influence

Like any city, Bristol is a sum of its parts. Each area has its own unique feel and atmosphere and knowing each can help elevate your Bristol event experience. For picturesque waterside drinks, you can’t go wrong with the Quays, located by the historic old city. Meetings, conferences and networking are best suited to the city centre, where excellent transport links and high-spec facilities will impress any client. Looking for something off the beaten track? Bristol is surrounded by rolling countryside and has many estates and manor houses that could give your wedding a bucolic boost.

Frequently asked questions

For venues in Bristol, you're spoilt for choice. Here are a few extra special ones that we vouch for:

The Restaurant, Clifton Lido – Sitting on the old viewing gallery overlooking the pool, this venue is an atmospheric choice for any event.

The Lounge, The Square Club – One of the most stylish, and the finest, restaurants in Bristol, and it's clear to see why.

Bristol Planetarium – If you’re looking for a space that’s out of this world, then this Bristol venue is for you.

There really is no one answer to this question: so many variables come into play when understanding the cost of hiring a venue in Bristol. Do you want catering? How many guests are you planning for? Is the venue for the day, the night or a weekend? The good news is that you can find a venue for pretty much any budget (okay, almost any budget).

A meeting room, for example, will start around the £50 mark and could go as high as £500, depending on the specifics. For exclusive hire of entire event spaces, you’ll be looking more at budgets of £2000 and upwards.

Instead of letting the venue dictate the price, our advice is to be proactive and set a budget that you feel comfortable with – this way the right venues can reach out to you through HeadBox.

There are lots of ways to book a Bristol venue. You can do the old-fashioned thing and pick up the phone, or email the venue directly. Unfortunately, lots of venues are busy and may not get back to you in time. That's where we come in. Give us your enquiry and we'll reach out to the best venues in Bristol and let you enjoy your free time. Easy.
