Bristol has a few pockets of more expensive neighbourhoods. A lot of these neighbourhoods can be more expensive due to the school catchment areas or commuting distances to offices. The likes of Clifton, Henleaze, Westbury-on Trym & Stoke Bishop have seen continued growth and interest. These areas are close to the city centre without compromising on space and green areas.
All of these areas attract young families and professionals, as well as retirees, again who are looking to have great access to the centre, without being too close. The high streets of Henleaze and Westbury-on-Trym are particularly popular, with many coffee shops, bars, pubs and restaurants to choose from. They also have a good supply of dentists, opticians and GPs within walking distance.
Canford Park in Westbury-on-Trym is very well liked by runners & dog walkers, and the Clifton Downs are not far away if you are looking for even more space, with over 400 acres of green open space to enjoy. In the Spring and Summer months, you can often see the Clifton Downs scattered with large groups of family and friends gathered together, playing rounders or football, enjoying a picnic.
If you are heading south of the river, Southville is one of the more expensive areas to live in Bristol. It is known for being more diverse and full of independent businesses, including shops, restaurants and bars, as well as being in close proximity to the city centre. Bristol really is proving to be more popular; and we can see why.
