First on our list of the top five cheapest flight destinations from Bristol airport is the Romanian capital of Bucharest. Still considered a hidden gem by travellers in the know, you should plan a trip before the city gets overrun with Londoners on a weekend getaway. The city centre is a mishmash of medieval, neoclassical, and art nouveau buildings, and warrants the overused description of breathtaking. After walking slack-jawed around the city stopping at architectural marvels like the Stavropoleos Monastery, re-energise with a hearty meal before checking out Bucharest’s vibrant nightlife.

Not just one of the cheapest destinations to reach from Bristol airport, but also one of the top city-breaks you can take in terms of pure, unadulterated fun. Mix the old with the new by visiting medieval structures like the imposing St. Paul’s Cathedral (built in 1191) followed by the modern Science Gallery Museum. Alternatively, enjoy some Guinness and live music in a pub like The Brazen Head (founded in 1198) after feasting on contemporary cuisine somewhere like Ashton’s Gastropub. Hell, why not do both? After all, Dublin guarantees you’ll have a craicing good time.

KAYAK Tips: If you fancy a break from the bustle, head to North Bull Island a UNESCO biosphere site, located in Dublin Bay and less than a half hour from the city centre on public transport. Due to migration patterns, the reserve is a nature and bird lover’s paradise, especially from late autumn until early spring.

If you’re searching for cheap flights from Bristol and want to explore a city on most people’s must-see lists, then you should head to Venice.
