Lying on the River Avon between the counties of Somerset and Gloucestershire, Bristol is southern England’s most populous city, after London, with a population of just over 1 million people. It is the largest hub for culture, employment and education in the region whose economy, in recent years, has been driven primarily by the creative media, electronics and aerospace industries.
Bristol House Prices
Bristol’s housing market is stable and promising. Average house prices in the city are currently rising slightly faster than the 4.4% annual average in the South West, according to the Office of National Statistics, and are very nearly back to the 2008 pre-crash peak. The soaring demand for student accommodation moreover, has seen investors flock to Bristol to purchase property on a buy-to-let basis.
It is not yet clear how the introduction of tougher borrowing restrictions and interest rate rises will impact Bristol, but there are concerns that the demand for property in the area may fall and house prices will drop accordingly.
Bristol Culture, Attractions & Things to Do
Bristol’s prosperity has long been owed to it’s links to the sea, with the commercial Port of Bristol being the historical city centre before being moved to the Severn Estuary. These links still contribute to the city’s thriving tourism industry, with its historical connections to piracy making Pirate Pete’s tour of the local pirate and smuggler hotspot being a particular favourite. In addition to this, Brunel’s SS Great Britain Museum Ship, Bristol Zoo Gardens and its plethora of street art, spearheaded by famous artist Banksy, are popular attractions for those visiting Bristol.
Unsurprisingly, Bristol’s Shopping Quarter is the most popular destination in the city for shoppers. Located in the city centre, the Shopping Quarter has over 500 stores and 50 restaurants and cafés. Easy to get to and suffused with regular street art exhibitions and live music. Clifton Village is one of the more upmarket areas of the city, boasting several small boutique stores, antiques shops and chic cafés. Park Street, the road that connects Clifton to the city centre, recently won a Google award for being ‘Britain’s hippest street’, with its wonderful array of shops and eateries amidst some beautiful Georgian architecture. Finally, there is Gloucester Road which is said to be the longest stretch of independent shops and stores in Europe.
Well known to locals, East Bristol serves as a launchpad into the surrounding countryside. Those in search of beautiful natural scenery and a tranquil walk are spoiled for choice in East Bristol. There is the Grade II listed Stoke Park and the breathtaking walks up and down the River Avon, around Oldbury Court Estate and Feeder Canal, to name but a few.
South Bristol is colloquially known as ‘where the locals drink’ with its eclectic mix of pubs, bars and cafés. The Clifton Triangle, as-well as being a popular destination for shoppers, is also a hotspot for night time revelers.
Bristol also boasts the oldest working theatre in the country. The Bristol Old Vic has been staging theatrical performances since 1766. The Old Vic is located in the Old City district of Bristol and is an absolute must see for anyone with an interest in history, architecture or the city of Bristol itself.
History of Bristol
The area that is now Bristol has been confirmed by archaeologists to have been inhabited for over 60,000 years. There is evidence of occupation during the Iron Age, that it was an important settlement for the Roman Empire and of its use as an Anglo-Saxon port before it’s name was corrupted to become Bristol, that we know today. Bristol grew to become Britain’s third city behind London and York, before being overtaken by cities such as Birmingham, Manchester and Liverpool during the industrial revolution.
