This elegant and refined district of Bristol is like a miniature of Bath. Following the terraces, crescents and squares of Georgian and Regency architecture you are led temptingly from Clifton Triangle to Clifton Village along a trail of cafes, bars, restaurants, pubs, shops, chic boutiques and leafy squares.
Boredom will never set in as you share a postcode with some of Bristol’s most famed attractions – Brunel’s Suspension Bridge, Bristol Zoo Gardens, Bristol City Museum and Art Gallery, Bristol Observatory and the sprawling green Durdham Downs (great for walks, runs, or picnics if you’re feeling more relaxed).
Key shopping roads include Whiteladies Road, Princess Victoria Street and Regent Street, and the surrounding residential roads of Pembroke Road and Queen’s Road will reveal suitable accommodation for anything from large families and young professionals to co-habiting students.
It is an ideal settling for a family with abundant schools and nurseries including Clifton College, Clifton High, Bristol Grammar, QEH, Christchurch and St John’s.
Commuters will find the transport links from Clifton Down train station and the well-established bus network useful – and the driving route towards the M5 is just down the Portway.« BACK TO AREA GUIDE
