OUTDOOR VENUES IN BRISTOL

Often referred to as one of Europe's coolest city’s in Europe, Bristol’s first-rate nightlife, thriving creative and tech industries and proximity to the great outdoors made it an obvious choice to hold an event. 

 

OUTDOOR VENUES GUIDE AND TIPS

Bristol is also bursting with unique venues, perfect for any outdoor event.

 

WHAT SORT OF OUTDOOR VENUES CAN YOU HIRE IN BRISTOL?

If you're looking for something a little different, Bristol Zoo Gardens is the perfect outdoor venue that can cater for large numbers of guests up to 2000. 

Whether you're family, friends, employees or colleagues, enjoy what Bristol Zoo has to offer, with the option to stroll around our gardens and say hello to your favourite animals.

Parties can be hosted within one of our two venues onsite. The 1920's building, The Clifton Pavilion, or you can opt for The Hide, their animal-themed restaurant that offers an immersive, experience for guests. 

 

WHAT ELSE DO YOU NEED TO CONSIDER FOR OUTDOOR EVENTS?

You can have more people outside than in. The biggest problem with an outdoor event is the weather. Let's face it; even the Met Office isn't 100% sure about what the weather will do on any one day.

The biggest piece of advice Lime Venue Portfolio can offer when booking Outdoor space is to ensure you have a wet weather option up your sleeve. At Lime Venue Portfolio, we will always give you a contingency option. So, if the heavens open and people need to head indoors, you've got peace of mind your event can carry on as planned.

 

COVID SAFE OUTDOOR EVENTS

Your safety is our top priority. All of our training venues are COVID-safe. For more information about what we're doing, look at our COVID Secure Standards and our COVID-19 FAQs.

Keeping your business moving and growing is as important to us as it is to you. We recognise that important decisions and deals still need to be made, working relationships need to be strengthened and new ways of working need to be found. 

Our COVID-safe venues provide a place for you to do all of this securely.

Although our venues will have different safety processes in place, your experience's quality won't be changed. You can rely on our venues for award-winning catering, cutting-edge AV and expert teams to ensure your training runs smoothly.
