Buy property in Bristol, European City of the Year

The city of Bristol lies in the south-western part of England and is the largest in region.

Built around the River Avon, Bristol shares borders with Gloucestershire and Somerset, and is located near the historic cities of Gloucester to the north and Bath to the south-east. The city has a short coastline on the Severn Estuary, which flows out into the Bristol Channel.

Bristol has a long and rich history, with Iron Age hill forts located at Leigh Woods, Clifton Down and Kingsweston Hill, near Henbury. Isolated Roman villas and settlements can also be found throughout the region. Abona, which was recorded in the Antonine Itineraries of the early third century, was the major Roman settlement in Bristol.

Houses for sale in Bristol can be found around the Abbots Leigh region, which offers highly desirable property set in sprawling, perfectly manicured grounds.
Bristol's popularity as a place to build a home is entirely justified given its plentiful accolades and honours, including the UK's First Cycling City, European City of the Year, the UK's Most Sustainable City and one of the world's Top Ten Cities for 2009 (awarded by DK Eyewitness).

In addition, Bristol was given the prestigious Purple Flag Award in 2010 in honour of the hard work local authorities have done to make region a cleaner and safer place to be in the evenings and weekends.

The city is also an ideal choice for property seekers looking for flats to rent, with apartments available for reasonable prices in the Old Market, Redcliffe and St Pauls areas within Bristol City Centre.

For those interested in arts and culture, Bristol is home to a number of galleries and museums, including M Shed, the city's flagship museum, The Red Lodge, the Fleet Air Arm Museum and the Clifton Suspension Bridge Visitor Centre. ADNFCR-1222-ID-800691972-ADNFCR
