Living in City of Bristol

A packed cultural calendar

From music and art to cinema and theatre, the city really does have something for everyone. Its music scene is second to none. You can discover new acts in grass-roots venues, enjoy classical shows or watch superstar artists in a range of settings. The museums and galleries are a great way to see some moving artwork, but you can also see world-famous Banksy pieces simply walking the streets. And you can always catch a film or a show at one of the city’s many cinemas or theatres. 

Throughout the year, there are larger events that help bring the city to life and are great ways to feel part of the community. St Paul’s Carnival, the Harbour Festival and the Balloon Fiesta all celebrate unique aspects of the city. With a new house in Bristol, you’ll be able to take part in all the city has to offer and find your place in the community.

A green city

There are over 400 parks and gardens, including 30 nature reserves in the surrounding area, giving you easy access to natural spaces. Bristol also boasts four city farms that offer a hands-on approach to getting back to nature.

You’ll also benefit from a network of footpaths and cycle routes that make it easy to walk and cycle around, improving the health and environment of the city. If you want to venture further, The Cotswold Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty is just next to the city. The Cotswolds is the UK’s largest AONB, offering endless opportunities for walking and exploring. 

Transport and amenities

Bristol is a transport hub with great road, rail and air connections. The M4 runs just north of the city, providing a link across the country to London and Wales, and the M5 connects the city with Exeter. 

Bristol Temple Meads and Parkway stations have a huge range of trains to locations around the country. Direct services run to Edinburgh, Cardiff, London, Plymouth, Manchester, Worcester and many destinations in the region. If you need to travel further, the airport is just outside the city and flies to many national and international destinations.

Being a large city, you’ll also have access to all of the facilities and amenities you’ll need. There are plenty of opportunities for independent and high-street shopping ranging from the alternative Stokes Croft to the out-of-town shopping and leisure centre at Cribbs Causeway. You’ll be able to find all of the major supermarkets, restaurants, food stalls, events and shops offering a huge range of different cuisines reflecting the diversity of the city.
