You reach Shirehampton if you follow the River Avon and The Portway (A4) out of Bristol towards the M5. Like Westbury-on-Trym, Shirehampton is really a village, with a traditional high street. It's easily accessible from the city via Stoke Bishop, Sea Mills or Westbury-on-Trym.
Shirehampton is bordered by Blaise Castle Estate and a golf club. On the other side, you have Avonmouth and easy access to the M5 motorway.
It's a traditional family area with lots of period homes, mostly Victorian with two and three bedrooms, but there are some interesting larger properties and cottages, too. On the outskirts, there are some '30s and '50s houses and flats available.
There are some notable local employers, including The Bristol Port Company, Lafarge, Hardings Retail (since 1927), Accolade Wines, GKN Aerospace, Seabank Power Station and BOCM Pauls, Amazon.
Commuting is easy - there's the Metro rail station, which also stops at Sea Mills, two well-serviced bus routes and Bristol Park & Ride.
