January 4, 2018

Bristol is now the most desirable city for house hunters, so the best removals Bristol has to offer are likely to be in high demand.

A new poll by the online estate agents RightMove has shown that Bristol is the most popular place that people looking for a home search for outside of London.

It is followed by searches for homes in these places:


  1. Bristol, Bristol
  2. York, Birmingham
  3. Norwich, Leeds
  4. Edinburgh, Manchester
  5. Sheffield, Nottingham
  6. Birmingham, Liverpool
  7. Cambridge, Glasgow

It is popular among both renters and buyers, with many attracted to the city due to the diversity the local area offered.

Sam Riddell, senior branch manager of Andrews Property Group in Bishopston  told the Bristol Post: “Bristol has something for everyone, from the bohemian streets of St Werburghs to the grandeur of Clifton Village.”

Bristol was named the best place to live back in 2017, according to the Sunday Times Best Places to Live Guide.

Many cite the quirky city’s nightlife as a big draw for many people, with the city boasting a university and young demographic. However, the technology jobs in the local area, coupled with the arts scene there have cemented the city as a favourite.

The Sunday Times list considers crime rates, schools and house prices, among other aspects in order to decide which areas are the best places to live in the UK.
