Bristol’s thriving digital tech cluster, first-rate nightlife and proximity to the great outdoors make it an obvious choice to relocate.

As Rough Guides put it ‘think London, but smaller and (dare we say it) cooler’

With an offbeat counterculture and with an enormous gorge cutting an improbable chunk through part of the city, Bristol is one of the hottest places on the planet!

The great outdoors make up a huge part of Bristol’s identity. Cycling is a popular part of Bristol life, with the first part of the National Cycle Network started here. Another outdoor activity to be enjoyed is swimming; the city has its own Lido, an outdoor swimming pool surrounded by a range of the coolest restaurants and bars.  The city also has plenty of green parks and open spaces as well as beautiful waterfronts to enjoy which is probably why it was voted the Green Capital in Europe in 2015!

The incredible mix of cultures is reflected in the great range of food you can find in the city, from gastro pubs to local cafes. The people of Bristol are deeply passionate about food and the city is always buzzing with people enjoying locally produced food, drink and alcohol. But it’s not just all about the food, a night out in Bristol can mean anything from clubbing on a boat to visiting local comedy clubs, as well as a whole host of lively bars throughout the city.

When shopping in Bristol there is something for everyone, and visitors often go to Clifton village to experience its great number of quaint cafes and independent boutiques.  For an all-out shopping spree you’ll want to visit Bristol’s shopping quarter, located in the city centre and offering shoppers everything from big name designers to high street brands.

If it’s culture you’re after, the city is well known for its great street art, most notably, the works of mysterious graffiti artist, Banksy. The city is also home to many great landmarks including the Clifton Suspension Bridge, Brunel’s SS Great Britain and Bristol Cathedral – there’s plenty to do to experience the cities rich history.

Whether you want culture, nightlife or outdoor activities, Bristol always has a great deal to offer with a lot of emphasis on the great outdoors. Time in the city can be as peaceful or bustling as you want, and there is so much to see and do which is no wonder Rough Guides named it the UK’s coolest city.
