Moving house can be a very exciting time (though not without its trials and tribulations, of course) and working out where you want to live can be a lot of fun. Bristol, we’re proud to say, has just been named as the best place to live in the Sunday Times Best Places to Live Guide, taking into account school performances, house prices and crime rates – so here are our picks of some of the best places to consider moving to in and around the city. Enjoy!
Chances are you’ll recognise this part of Bristol, because it’s famous for its beautiful rows of coloured town houses, just south of the river and not too far from Temple Meads train station. Roads are very steep here so make sure you wear sensible shoes! It’s quite family oriented, so perfect if you have young children and the likes of the nearby Perrett’s and School Road parks will keep you all entertained when the sun shines.
This little suburb is simply stunning, nestled among local woodlands and some impressive botanical gardens. As beautiful as it is, expect to shell out the big bucks for houses. According to Rightmove, two-bedroom flats go for around £325,000, while a three-bed semi on Burwalls Road will set you back a cool £1,250,000.
If you want to live in the heart of the city, this would be a good choice. The majority of homes were built to house workers in the coal mining industry or those who were employed by the local tobacco factories. Locally, you’ll find Dame Emily Park, Greville Smyth Park, the Bristol South swimming pool, lots of bars and restaurants… you certainly won’t be bored!
