The best place to live

Bristol is a happy, friendly and welcoming city. People stop for a chat. People help each other out. And the polls prove it too:

  • Kindest city (2016 Co-op Food poll)
  • Happiest city to work in (Guardian, 2016)
  • Best place to live (Sunday Times, 2017).

Can’t argue with that.

Where is Bristol?

  • Bristol is a city situated in the South West of England.
  • Bath is 15 minutes by train from Bristol Temple Meads station.
  • London is 90 minutes by train or a couple of hours by coach – we even have our own Megabus stop at Frenchay Campus.

Things to do in Bristol

I absolutely love Bristol, it’s a really vibrant and cultural city. There’s always something going on, whether it’s festivals in the summer, food markets by the harbour, day parties or balloon fiestas.
