Welcome to Southville

Sometimes referred to as lower Clifton, Southville has become popular with young families, professionals and people who like the convenience of its location without the Clifton Prices. Buyers and renters alike will tell you Southville is perfectly situated around the enticing North Street, Ashton Gate (Bristol City’s football ground) and Greville Smythe Park.

Located to the south of the city centre, Southville attracts renters and buyers of all ages, and is an ideal area for those ready to enjoy city living in style. Residential property in Southville is predominantly mid to late 19th Century, and there is an eclectic mix of terraced and semi-detached housing, as well as some modern apartments and stylish converted flats. Period details such as high ceilings, sash windows and the occasional view of the park are sure to wow anyone who lives here! The overall air of Southville is that of a Glastonbury-esque mini town with everything you could possibly want on your doorstep.

There’s plenty of things to see and do here – you’re never far from North Street, with its huge range of pubs, cafes and restaurants to enjoy. If you enjoy good food, live music and theatre, The Tobacco Factory is always worth a visit and even hosts a renowned Sunday Market. There are lots of brilliant independent shops, butchers, fish mongers, green grocers, and more to enjoy everything you need within walking distance.

From Southville, the city centre and harbourside are just minutes away on foot or by bike, with equally easy access to Temple Meads train station in one direction and Long Ashton, Nailsea and the countryside in the other.

The area has also been home to the world-renowned urban paint festival known as Upfest, turning the whole neighbourhood into a vibrant graffiti and mural hub. In the winter, Bedminster Winter Lantern Parade brings huge amounts of fun to the area.
