3. Revitalise with a refreshing spa trip
Why not take your loved one to the beautiful Lido in Clifton. A stunning 24m heated outdoor swimming pool where you can take a relaxing dip that will leave you feeling fresh and energised.

There is nothing better than good chocolate and Zara’s Chocolates really are one of the best. An artisan chocolatier based in Southville making beautiful handmade chocolates. Our favourites are the dark sea salt caramel truffles but there are loads to choose from and even heart shaped boxes for the perfect display.
All of the flourishes and decoration are created by hand and Zara’s Chocolates has become renowned for producing excellent chocolate and innovative flavour combinations, the hardest part is deciding which ones to pick!
