Bristol is many things: a city, a unitary authority, and a county; it sits on the Bristol Channel in the south west of England. Bristol has always been prosperous thanks to its ready access to the sea via the Bristol Channel; this is the largest city in the South West and is traditionally a centre for culture and education. Nowadays, the economy is based more upon creative media and the electronics and aerospace industries, with the docks seeing a new life as a centre of history and culture.
Districts of Bristol
In terms of boundaries, Bristol is something of an enigma: there is no official Greater Bristol Area, yet the postcode covers areas outside of the city centre. However, like all major cities, Bristol is comprised of smaller ‘towns and villages’ each with its own character, here we list just a few.
Barton Hill is an area of high rise council flats built back in the 1950s; they have a reputation for vandalism and drug use, although there are projects underway to improve the area.
Brislington sits on the south-eastern edge of the city, just 10 miles from Bath. It is home to HTV television and Arnos Vale cemetery, currently undergoing restoration following a media campaign.
Historic Clifton was built on profits from the slave trade; it is, and always has been, rather affluent. The prime property location is Royal York Crescent, which overlooks the docks. It adjoins Clifton Village and is one of the most expensive addresses in the city. The area is home to the Clifton Suspension Bridge, Clifton Cathedral, and Bristol Zoo.
Mainly residential, with rows of terraced Victorian houses, Fishponds is popular with students at the University of the West of England, which has two campuses in the area. It sits to the north east of the city.
Hartcliffe is a council estate on the southern edges of Bristol city, once home to Imperial Tobacco, whose site is now the basis of several redevelopment plans. Mainly remembered for the 1992 three-day-riot following the deaths of two alleged bike thieves who were killed in a police chase.
Well-heeled Henleaze was built between the wars and is mostly residential, featuring elegant Edwardian properties. It is home to Badminton, probably the most exalted girls’ school in Britain.
St Pauls was badly damaged during the Blitz and, post war, experienced high levels of immigration. Today there is a large Afro-Caribbean population and the area is steeped in poverty. However, it is known for its strong community spirit, which is typified by the annual carnival in July.
Totterdown is situated south of the River Avon and south-east of Temple Meads railway station; it is mainly known for its brightly coloured terraced housing which, because it sits high above the river bank, can be seen for miles.
Withywood is situated to the south of the city and is another council estate area. The area is isolated due to its poor road links, although the long awaited South Bristol Ring Road might alleviate this.
