“A mixture of old and new”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 22, 2010

Portishead lies on the the Bristol channel some six miles from Bristol, it is a vibrant town that is growing with marina and village quater developments yet manages to keep it's victorian atmosphere, in particular it's high street, still housing family shops in variety. There are activities for both young and old.
Portishead is for retirement without feeling old.

“Flower show in Portishead”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2009

We just moved into Portishead and last weekend it was the Flower show 2009. We were very pleased to see that it is truly a comunity in bloom and it was more than a flower show: there were local produce (from veggies, fruits, cider, eggs, art, paintings, photo and catering competition)
lots of charity shops were present selling items and selling tickets for a lottery.
Avon representatives had a stand with discounted products :)
and outside there was plenty of entertainment for the whole family: from trained eagles (from Central America... where I am from), trained dogs, music and folkloric dancing
It was a beautiful day and well worth to learn about Somerset traditions!
