Bristol for students
Bristol is an absolutely fascinating city with an interesting past and an awesome present. The history of the city goes back hundreds of years, cementing Bristol as a key shipping port. The maritime roots are still reflected in the city today.
Bristol is home to plenty of prestigious universities and colleges including the University of Bristol, University of the West of England (UWE), and the City of Bristol College. When you get a place at one of these institutions, you’ll be joining thousands of other students who also call the city home.
Whilst you’ll no longer find pirates roaming around(!), you will find an abundance of quirky things to see and do. Bristol to this day remains a place full of intrigue and excitement.
Your student studio is well equipped when it comes to cooking but when you fancy a break, Bristol city centre offers a wide variety of cuisines so you’re never going to be short of new places to try.
If you just want something quick and easy after a long day of shopping, you should head over to Cabot Circus, a retail and dining complex in the heart of the city where you’ll find loads of beloved chains. You’ll find more of the same sort of stuff at Millennium Square, and some smaller independents to grab a bite to eat on Park Street.
When you fancy something a little different, you can try hip hangouts on North Street or a range of different places in Stokes Croft, a vibrant and colourful area complete with loads of fun eateries, cosy pubs and vegan cafés. It’s self-styled as ‘Bristol’s Cultural Quarter’, and that’s precisely what it is.
Elsewhere, you’ll find everything from Middle Eastern to Mediterranean, steaks to street food, and your private student accommodation in Bristol is close to it all.
Things to do
You’ll be in shopping heaven in Bristol. Cabot Circus is a shopper’s paradise full of the big names, while the boutiques of St Nicholas’ Market are a little edgier.
Hate being bored? You’ll love Bristol. There is so much to do at night time and going for drinks is at the top of the list. The Harbourside has some amazing places to go out, and both Park Street and North Street also have some incredible spots. Venture a little deeper into the city and you’ll find the so called ‘Beermuda Triangle’ – a plethora of pubs selling craft ale and other treats, with a cosy atmosphere that’s perfect for bonding outside of your student halls.
Having a bit of a detox or simply don’t fancy going to a bar? We’ve got you covered as well. There are cinemas galore, Bristol Zoo Gardens, plus two football clubs and a rugby club to help you make the most of your student experience.
Arts & culture
Bristol’s fascinating history means there’s plenty to do if you fancy educating yourself outside of the classroom. M Shed is a museum all about Bristol itself, so it’s great for geeking out and learning a little about your new area. For more cultural experiences, you can visit The Matthew of Bristol, a replica of the first European boat to reach North America, or Bristol’s very own city farm, St Werburgh’s. Of course, Bristol wouldn’t be Bristol without art. Why not take a Banksy walking tour, or visit the Lime Tree Gallery?
You’ll love Bristol if you like a bit of drama every now and then. The likes of the Bristol Old Vic and the Bristol Hippodrome theatres have been keeping people entertained for years, and the Arnolfini is a huge hit amongst the more artistic crowds because it hosts a bit of everything.
If you like music, you’re in for a treat. There are venues to suit artists of all tastes around the city, and some really unique ones at that. For example, you’ve got Thekla, a venue on an actual boat, and Motion, a space in an old warehouse. You can also head to the O2 Academy, The Fleece, Colston Hall or the Hippodrome.
Health & wellbeing
Getting out to enjoy the great outdoors is easy in Bristol, and you can even enjoy a spot of sunshine (when the British weather allows for it) by marvelling at the Clifton Suspension Bridge from Clifton Downs. Alternatively, head to Castle Park, Brandon Hill Park or St Andrew’s Park for a peaceful walk, a jog or even a kick-about!
If keeping fit matters to you, our student flats in Bristol allow you to get stuck in. Nearby, there are local swimming pools, cycling routes, gyms and a variety of clubs at the universities that you can get involved in – the choice is yours.
When it comes to navigating your way around on a day-to-day basis, you have loads of choices, including buses, trains and even boats. Temple Meads train station is super close to our student accommodation in Bristol, as is the bus station which will get you around town and to national destinations.
As you might imagine, there are plenty of bus stops dotted around, so you’ll always be able to make it to lectures and beyond. There are also plenty of reputable taxis in the area to get you home safely from a night out.
Bristol is often referred to as the ‘Capital of the South West’, and so it’s a big, well-connected city. When you fancy getting away, you can jump on a National Express coach or a Megabus, and Bristol Airport is on your doorstep too.
