Much of this district can be seen from the A4 Portway if you are travelling out of the city having gone under the iconic Clifton Suspension Bridge. This part of town is amongst the leafiest part of the City, none larger than the Downs, a huge expanse of open space and woodlands, at its edge overlooking the River Avon with a stunning view towards the Bridge. There are a wide variety of age and styles of houses, where larger gardens, parking and trees are in much more plentiful supply than other parts of town. Sea Mills boasts a railway station again with lovely walks. Blaise Castle is another large open space with good café and Blaise Dell has an interesting collection of ancient cottages. Westbury on Trym and Henleaze are bustling shopping centres with independent coffee and boutique shops. Henleaze also has a cinema and Waitrose, as well as a private swimming lake. Excellent primary, secondary and private schools can be found within this area.
