Hot Spots

Online guidebook to the best of Bristol

Click to view

Hot Spots is a guide influenced by a recent trip to New Zealand where I noticed the immense value placed on supporting independent and local businesses, hardly a Starbucks in sight. I saw many parallels between cities such as Auckland and Wellington with my hometown of Bristol and felt inspired to compile a list of my own, drawing attention to the quirky and quintessentially Bristol businesses. While I am aware of the many guidebooks that already exist, some of which I frequently use myself for inspiration on days off, I felt there were none solely designed with the purpose of spotlighting independents (however, if you do know of any, send them my way!)


This project is certainly in its infantile stages and therefore is a bit patchy in some areas and will be evolving as I get the time to implement all the different exciting plans I have for the site.
