The rolling multi-coloured terraces of Montpelier define Bristol’s bohemian quarter. Some of the narrow and winding streets almost give the area a village-like feel and provide some spectacular views southward over the city. You will not find a neighbourhood in Bristol which has a more diverse range of property styles and sizes. Take a stroll and you will find fine Georgian city residences, elegant Victorian terraces, and light, bright homes from the 1930s and 1960s alongside contemporary flats and conversions.
Located within a mile of Bristol’s centre Montpelier has its own railway station and the main shopping area Picton Street is a haven for lovers of organic and vegetarian cuisine. To note a few local institutions: Licata’s is an excellent family run Italian delicatessen and a trip to the area is not complete without a visit to the amazingly aromatic Herbert’s bakery. If you happen to be in the mood to eat out then all budgets are covered from the most reasonable and tasty One Stop Thali Café to the well renowned fine eatery Bells Diner.« BACK TO AREA GUIDE
