Redcliffe and Bristol City Centre
Over the last decade, Bristol’s city centre has seen increased development and the creation of a range of new homes. In addition to being close to major employers, this location is ideal for young professionals eager to enjoy the buzz that Bristol has to offer. As commuting times are kept to a minimum for anyone living a stone’s throw from their workplace, demand for properties in this area is high. Young professionals in this area also benefit from excellent transport links, which make it easy to access other parts of the UK.
Totterdown and Temple Meads
Situated south of the River Avon, Totterdown was built in the 19th century to house the many railway workers working nearby. The area is renowned for its colourful Edwardian and Victorian properties, which gives the area a creative and approachable ambience.

Montpelier and Kingsdown
Located around two miles to the north of Bristol city centre, Montpelier and Kingsdown are home to myriad Georgian properties and have a distinctly bohemian vibe. In addition to providing excellent views of the city, commuters can expect to get from door to desk in around 20 minutes.
One of the most sought-after areas in Bristol, Clifton Village is picturesque and offers stunning views of the Clifton suspension bridge. Clifton is home to a wide variety of different types of properties, making it an ideal location for young professionals regardless of where they are on the career ladder. Both locals and tourists flock to Clifton’s many independent shops, pubs, restaurants, and cafés, which means there is always plenty to see and do. Clifton village is also situated close to Bristol’s city centre and has good transport links that support a healthy work-life balance, with commutes keeping under the 30-minute mark.
Until redevelopment projects began in the 90s, the Southville area of Bristol was starting to look rundown and unloved. Since regeneration started however, previously abandoned buildings such as the old tobacco factory have been converted into an arts centre. Numerous vibrant bars, restaurants, and independent shops have made the area their home too. Benefiting from good transport links and thirty-minute commutes, this area is becoming increasingly popular among young professionals looking for a more suburban location, but one that still has plenty on offer.
Redland and Cotham
Situated 1.6 miles north of the city centre, Redland and Cotham is just a half-an-hour walk to Bristol’s business areas.
