The North

Comprising; Gloucester Road, Bishopston, Horfield, Clifton, Cotham, Redland, Kingsdown, St Pauls.

The entire area is littered with local coffee and boutique shops, Gloucester Road (which are synonymous with Bishopston and Horfield, not to mention Cotham and Stokes Croft) is the longest retail shopping street in Bristol, stretching from Stokes Croft centrally by the Bus Centre to M5 outside the city at Almondsbury. Bishopston is lucky to have the beautiful St Andrews Park, comprising café, bowls, tennis club, paddling pool and play equipment for kids. Great pubs can be found throughout this part of the city. St Pauls just to the north of the city centre, is famous for its summer carnival and West Indian community. Kingsdown is arguably the city’s best connected location, sitting in the middle of most, with the BRI (Bristol Royal Infirmary) on the doorstep. Clifton is one of Bristol’s most architecturally interesting districts, with its blend of Georgian and Victorian property, not to mention Brunel’s iconic Suspension Bridge. Clifton also has its own cathedral, as well as many open spaces, with Ashton Court just across the Bridge.
