Old Market is the traditional trading hub of Bristol, and is still known as a commercial area. It's right next to the city centre, just down the road from Cabot Circus and across the A4044 from Castle Park.
Properties are often in old buildings that have been refurbished into smart flats, like the former Trinity Almshouse. There are also newer flat developments. Houses in this area are harder to come by.
Old Market is a lively and vibrant area and, since its redevelopment in the post-war years, it's become the centre for Bristol’s LGBT community. There's a great choice of bars and pubs, including one of Bristol's oldest, the Stag & Hounds.
Being in the centre of Bristol means travelling around and out of the city is easy. Several main roads are very nearby. Buses are frequent and Temple Meads station is only half a mile away.
