Southmead is a suburb in the north of Bristol, with Filton to the north, Westbury-on-Trym to the west and Horfield to the south. Large-scale development of the area began in the 1930s and most properties date from this time. Southmead is a slightly cheaper alternative to nearby Horfield and Westbury-on-Trym, but still a very convenient place to live.
Southmead Hospital is the main local landmark and the area is popular with people who work at the hospital. Southmead has its own high street, Greystoke Avenue, and is also fairly close to Gloucester Road. The nearby Horfield Leisure Centre has a gym, swimming pool and plenty of other sports facilities.
The A38 runs to the east of Southmead, providing access to the city centre four miles south and connecting with the M4/M5 interchange at Almondsbury two miles north. The nearest train station is Filton Abbey Wood, roughly two miles away.
