With rolling countryside stretching for miles, interspersed with magnificent churches and historic houses that will transport you to another time altogether, you will need car hire Bristol to take it all in.

For those who wish to join in why not attend the Bristol Rally School. For the most exhilarating experience, speed round the track in a Formula ford racing car, Subaru Impreza WRX or an impressive Lotus Elise. Even better, use your own vehicle on a track day, although probably best not to use car hire Bristol vehicles as your insurance may take a hike!

A skid pan is also part of the attraction of Bristol for motorsport fans where you can take driver training to hone your skills. For those who can't make up their minds, try 'Rage Buggy Racing'.

Billed as a cross between karting and rallying, this is another event where you'd be best advised to leave the car hire Bristol vehicle at the sidelines.

For those who want to see the sights but participate in slightly different events to motorsports, use car hire Bristol to transport you to Cheddar Gorge. This will be a far more physical event where you can try your hand at climbing, caving or abseiling.

A great Bristol day out for the kids is the amazing ice rink where Robin Cousins learnt to skate. Ice skating is a brilliant way to burn off that extra energy during the school holidays. And if it's fresh air you want, Bristol is inundated with open spaces and parks for families and couples alike.
