East Bristol

Follow the Bristol and Bath Railway Path from Lawrence Hill, the first major cycling network project undertaken by Sustrans and one of its most popular routes today.

See the city's trademark colourful buildings and abundance of graffiti snake through bustling shopping districts in Easton and Redfield, and enjoy our international food scene reflecting an eclectic community.

Beautiful parks and independent businesses brighten quieter residential areas like Fishponds, while the hills in Kingswood (the highest point in the city) provide outstanding vistas.

There are so many peaceful green spaces and woodland areas to explore. Wind your way along the River Avon, stopping to catch a ferry to Beese's Tea Gardens for a slice of cake. Visit Troopers Hill Nature Reserve or admire the gardens at Snuff Mills and listed Oldbury Court Estate.

Renting in Bristol

Students and staff can find out about renting privately in Bristol from the Accommodation Office.

Bristol city has a lot to offer. There’s lots of music and art and fantastic places to go out. It’s not too big so you can walk everywhere. Plus it has a nice vibe, its people are friendly and I’ve always felt safe.
