1. Walk along the marina.
2. Taking the kids along the beach and coastal path.
3. Checking out the view across the Severn as you drive down Avon Way.
4. Summer days at the Lake Grounds.
5. The outdoor pool when its 30 degrees outside.
6. Strolling by every independent shop from 7dials by Waitrose along the High Street to Sole Lution.
7. Walking through Weston wood to Clevedon.
8. Sit outside Jacks in the sunshine with a lager.
9. Visiting St Peters church and graveyard.
10. Have a pint up the Royal and watch the sun set.
A bit tricky watching the sunset at the royal as it happens 180 dgrees in the wrong direction over a big hill.
It should read " a walk along the marina to the ice cream van"
Stop stopping stuff and help stuff get done
enjoy the country side whilst queing up the 'undreds
cycling up the kicker of some natch
ther you go loo exhausted at just 5, will try for another five tomorrow
When I am having a drink in the Royal and the sun goes down, the sky looks beautiful and the view is lovely. In my (incorrect) world, I am enjoying watching the sun set. I'm sorry if I didn't meet your technical definition of a sunset which sounds like 'staring directly at the sun as it goes down'. What a very clever comment, well done you.
I look forward to reading your final five.
many thanks for that great compliment may i recieve many more from you in the future. As it happens i did not create the technical definition of a sunset, although i am clever as credited by yourself, i am not clever enough to do that.
It does concern me though that you exist in an incorrect world, i wonder if there is a pill or a number of pills that might correct this, as clearly a drink at the Royal has failed to do so.
If you do wish to have a drink and look directly at it may i suggest a drink at the Lockhouse Lounge as it is suitably positioned for this to be carried out.
There does seem to be a recurring theme for what to do in Portishead and that is the word 'walk'. It appears that this is the number one activity and should be encouraged and yet when young people are seen walking towards or indeed in the vicinity of the Lakegrounds they are automatically assumed to be up to no good, even those simply going to enjoy the same sunset older people are allowed to enjoy with no suspicion cast upon their motives.
I think suttsutts suggestion No 6 is the answer for what to do in Portishead if of teenage years between 15-18 as there certainly isn't anything in the town to occupy them.
MajorAl you seem a little premature, and i am told not for the first time. Re read and you will see that it was YOU who deemed me "very clever" and NOT me cliaming to be clever.
As i said many thanks for the compliment.
Oh and by the way **** does not have 3 stars in it,
8. being told by MajorAl that i am "very Clever" and then trying to claim it was i !!!

8 - The sculptures, which take one's mind off the fact we only have one petrol state.
9 - The way drivers shoot ascross the junction at Cabstand like a roundabout because there's no clear traffic guidance and the GIVE WAY sign was taken away.

5 - Cycle!
6 - Walk around again and now wondering what else I could do with my time?
7 - Go online and search "Portishead things to do"...

10 - Sod it, I'll just go back to my walks and cycling.
