Westbury-on-Trym has so much to boast, from excellent properties, a suburbia village-like atmosphere, vibrant high street and so much more. Westbury-on-Trym is home to the greatest concentration of retirees in the city, and also has one of the most highly educated populations, too.

In terms of outlook, Westbury-on-Trym is undoubtedly one of the city’s leading places to live. Property prices are among the highest in Bristol, but the range of property styles and sizes is unrivalled. Most homes are either semi-detached or detached and pretty much all will boast large rear gardens and off-street parking. There are some newer build apartments of high specifications, while in and around the village centre, smaller cottage-like homes abound.

This juxtaposition of styles is reflected in the population. Yes, there are plenty of retirees, but a great deal of the two- and three-bedroom properties belong to families, and there is a regular influx of young professionals moving into the area to take advantage of everything Westbury-on-Trym has to offer ­– space, safety, attractive surroundings, a solid sense of community, access to the best schools and parks in the city, and a real connection with village life.
