Vibrant and unmistakably cool. Have a great student experience surrounded by Bristol’s unique creativity and busy nightlife
Dive straight into your studies in a varied and colourful city. Bristol is small enough to feel familiar, but big enough to offer a wealth of different experiences every day. Stroll up Park Street dipping in and out of independent boutiques or sipping artisan coffee with the hipsters at Deco Lounge. Absorb alternative culture in the bohemian Stokes Croft area, catching the latest live act in laid-back Cosies. Divide your free time between relaxing by the harbour, finding cool gigs and visiting world-class museums, galleries and theatres.
All around you, historic architecture meets strikingly urban and modern visuals and evidence of a thriving arts scene. Along with 200 talented street artists, you’ll count the world-renowned Banksy among your neighbours. Watch out for his work as it springs up, causing a flurry of excitement in your new city.
Choose your favourite spots to exercise, study and unwind in Bristol’s lush green spaces. With nearby Castle Park and Brandon Park, you’re never far from a stunning vista. At night, explore well-loved pubs and venues in the city centre and discover hidden gems in every corner of this lively city. Whatever your taste, there’s something to tempt you.
Bristol is super cycle-friendly, and transport links are plentiful. Buses, trains and an accessible airport put the whole of the UK, and beyond, in easy reach, and rail links make the uniquely beautiful West Country your new weekend playground.
