Find property in Bristol

Bristol is a dynamic and vibrant city made up of a series of districts and areas, each with its own unique character and charm. It's a very old city which in recent years has really come to life, establishing itself as one of England's most important creative scenes for music media and the arts.

For people considering moving to Bristol from London, you certainly get more for your money in Bristol. The centre of the city is very accessible, with the M32 leading to its doorstep.  Both railway stations, Temple Meads and Bristol Parkway, offer excellent rail links to London and the rest of the country.  A recent comment from Savill's Estate Agents stated "The South West represents a popular choice for London buyers for a number of reasons. What buyers want is space, freedom and room for their children to grow up. They want the things that London can't provide – the room and the possibility to enjoy the outdoors. Many buyers moving from east to west will look to make an initial saving, to release equity for schooling or retirement, whilst others will look to spend a considerable sum transforming a property into their dream home".

Bristol City Centre

The centre of Bristol is best known for its shopping areas, and is also home to the largest permanent street art exhibition in the UK, as well as many quality restaurants and attractions.  Bristol's shopping quarter has over 500 stores, more than 50 cafes and restaurants, multiplex and art house cinemas and lively entertainment. The amazing range of shops, such as the world famous Harvey Nichols, means that whatever you're looking for, you are sure to find it in the centre of Bristol. 


Beginning with the Clifton Triangle and reaching into the area affectionately known as Clifton Village, this upmarket suburb has many fine Georgian and Victorian properties and is always hugely popular. There are boutique shops, pavement cafes and plenty of green spaces such as Brandon Hill, Ashton Court and the Downs. Clifton is an affluent and beautiful area, with some of the city's finest architecture. The centerpiece of Clifton is Brunel's historic Clifton Suspension Bridge.

Gloucester Road

Gloucester Road is located in north Bristol and runs through St. Andrews, Bishopston and Horfield. It is another popular and thriving suburb of the city with bars, shops and restaurants aplenty.  Shops line the long street, with a large number of independent traders as well as household names. It's a real quirky and bohemian extra dimension to Bristol’s shopping areas.  There is also a great choice of cafes, bars and restaurants, whether it's a local Bath Ales brew or an authentic Jamaican curry, there is a myriad of options.

Once a busy dock where sailors and merchants would trade goods and set sail for voyages of discovery, Bristol's Harbourside remains the buzzing hub of the city.  The Harbourside is now an attractive, modern development filled with restaurants, bars, shops and hotels. The long stretch of waterway makes it a great place for strolls on either side of the harbour, with Millennium Square acting as a fantastic central hub.


South Bristol

Southville, Bedminster and Totterdown are lively and popular areas south of the city, and from Temple Meads station you can see the famous multi coloured houses lining the hills of Totterdown. There are plenty of friendly pubs and cafes throughout the area, and Victoria Park offers incredible views over the city and the southern suburbs of Bristol.  Southville is a popular spot to enjoy a relaxing drink and some great food with North Street being at the centre of most of the activity.

Surrounding Areas

Bristol enjoys a fantastic location in the heart of the West Country, with some of England's finest countryside stretching out in all directions from the city. It's also close to some fantastic coastal resorts.  From the regal Georgian architecture of Bath, to the honey coloured houses and villages of the Cotswolds, there is so much to see and do within just a short distance of Bristol.

Out and About

With the introduction of new cycle paths and off road trails, Bristol is the UK's most bike friendly big city, according to a survey by Cycling Plus magazine.  Within less than an hour's drive of Bristol you have access to the wonderful hills and mountains of south Wales, Devon and Dorset; these are all very special areas just waiting to be explored.
