Detailing some of the best things to do in the town, the writers recommended going along to Gyllyngvase Beach, checking out independent boutiques such as Mirri Damer jewellery, heading to Chain Locked for a "harbourside pint" and taking in a gig at The Cornish Bank.

Chiara Wilkinson, Features Editor at Time Out UK, said: “We’re over the moon to share our Time Out list of the best places to visit in the UK in 2024.

"These destinations have buzzy new openings, excellent food and drink offerings and pinch-me-moment landscapes.

"With its vibrant cultural scene set to get even bigger next year, Bristol was a deserving winner – but it was also great to see underrated destinations like Hull, Wrexham and Falmouth take their spots in the top 15. If you need an excuse to book a staycation, surely this is it.”
