Bristol offers the best kind of city living. BS1 has wonderful shops, cafes and restaurants, along with fantastic culture and nightlife. Our cosmopolitan city has something for everyone.
The City Centre is better suited to young professionals without children or pets, as the majority of available homes are apartments. There’s an abundance of new, purpose-built blocks of flats and restored period buildings. In recent years, many commercial buildings have been innovatively converted – some of the most attractive are in the redeveloped Floating Harbour area, and include waterfront apartments in former warehouses and contemporary builds, ranging in size and price.
You have everything you need on your doorstep. The shopping centres of Broadmead and Cabot Circus offer a huge amount of choice for shopping, eating and entertainment, as well as supermarkets for the essentials. St Nicholas Markets and the Old City are both great for independent shops, bars and restaurants.
As you’d imagine, local transport links are excellent. The Centre – the area where the Floating Harbour extends into the city centre – is a hub for buses and taxis. There’s also a water ferry available. Temple Meads station is a little over a mile away.
If you’re driving out of the city centre, the M32 is moments away and takes you directly to the M4. You can also access the M5 via The Portway (A4).
