Where is it?
Bristol is a beautiful, vibrant, university city, full of history and culture. The historic harbourside hosts The Festival of the Sea and there are boat trips, museums and galleries. Our city is the home of Concorde and it also hosts an amazing hot air balloon festival, as well as festivals for music, kites, organic food, etc.
There are several markets as well as a wide range of shops and leisure facilities, both in the centre as well as the out of town mall (15 mins).
There are two major railway stations, an international airport, and access in 5 minutes to motorways. London is two hours away (1 hour 10 by train), the coast 1 hour Oxford 1 hour, Stratford upon Avon 1 hour, Bath 30 minutes, Wales 30 minutes, Cotswolds 45 minutes, Cornwall 2 hours. There are so many places which are close enough for a day or half day trip. We can loan our 7 seat Toyota Previa with air con & satt nav for easy comfortable driving.
We live in Bishopston, a safe, friendly neighbourhood of period properties, approx 1 mile from the city centre, with its own character and local centre, full of independent shops, traditional pubs, cafes and restaurants.
Within 5 minutes walk there is public swimming and tennis and we have a 2 local parks.
