Redland is an affluent suburb which spreads from Whiteladies Road down to Gloucester Road and neighbours areas such as Cotham, Bishopston and Clifton. From here, you can easily access the vast green expanse of the Durdham Downs, Bristol University and Whiteladies Road – making the area very popular. To head into the centre Redland Railway Station on the Severn Beach Line has a train straight to Bristol Temple Meads.
Redland itself has two sides; on one hand it is a quiet leafy family-orientated area with many large Victorian houses and flats. On the other side it buzzes with the lively student population. The houses are typically large Victorian properties ideal for families, many with access to the popular Redland Green secondary school and its much-coveted catchment area. Parts almost have a village-like feel where you can find pockets of independent restaurants, bakeries, delicatessens among some excellent local pubs. The area is also the spiritual home of the original ‘celebrity chef’ – Keith Floyd’s first restaurant was Floyd’s Chop House on Chandos Road.« BACK TO AREA GUIDE
