We know that many of you are coming a long way to attend this year's WCS, so wanted to give you some ideas on logistics and what not to miss should you choose to make a weekend of it in Bristol. Not only is it one of the UK's climbing hubs, but also has some amazing food, drink and activities, whatever the weather!
In order to help you plan your weekend better, we've sought help from women in the Bristol climbing community to give you the beta on where to stay, climb, get a brew...all the important stuff!
In the first of our series, WCS16 attendee Ashley Lait kicks us off with her recommendations.

The St Werburghs or Montpelier areas are both close to Bloc, so worth looking there. It is pricey, but you can stay in a vintage airstream in central Bristol at Brooks Guest House.
A post WCS drink:
IN CASE OF WET WEATHER:
Without a doubt…. Dick's Climbing on Midland Road.
Place to get a brew:
The Bristolian on Picton Street does amazing breakfasts.
Brew on Whiteladies Road is a great local hangout.
An obvious choice, but the suspension bridge is pretty amazing at night!
Decorating workshops (Sunday) at Stokes Croft China are really fun, and not your normal painting workshops - instead you use transfers/images so it’s quite unique).
