Redcliffe really has the very best of Bristol. Redcliffe was once the most affluent part of the city with most Georgian houses being occupied by the city’s rich and seafaring masters. The cobbled streets would have been trodden by even the odd pirate. Some of that history is still evident amongst the swish apartments converted from warehouses along the river, the local authority flats, the post-war terraces after the area was heavily bombed, and the large 70s, 80s, and 90s hotels and office blocks all overlooked by the most magnificent Redcliff Cathedral.

A rundown of location highlights will give you a clue as to why Redcliffe is such a brilliant area. You are a 5-minute walk from; The harbourside, The centre, Temple Meads train station, Finzels Reach, Cabot Circus and Bristol University. Redcliffe has its own train station and enjoys all major bus routes and cycle paths. Several bridges mean you are always connected to the North of the city without travelling far. On your doorstep are great restaurants, cafes and independent shops.

This part of the city is popular amongst people of all ages and families of all sizes. It really has the best of what a city as vibrant as Bristol can offer.
