Bristol is a place I will forever hold in my heart. With plenty of things to do during the day and night, Bristol always seems to be alive. Great music scene, great shops, great clubs, and great museums too!

Bristol isn't too bad in terms of cost, there's a lot of good deals and opportunities for students. There's plenty of places to eat or spend a night out all days of the week. For first years, some bus lines are free which is convenient. Otherwise there's plenty of buses around the city to go anywere easily!

Bit on the pricey side! Not as expensive as Bath or London, but definitely one of the more expensive cities to live in. Great music and entertainment scene.

Cheaper than London…

I love it here!! Many people say it’s expensive compared to wales or up north however I come from Cambridge and prices of living are very similar here as to what they are around that area. Cheaper than London

Not cheap…

Bristol's one of the best cities in the UK. Very trendy and although not cheap, variety, art, friendliness and culture make up for it.

Nights Out

Loads of places to go for a night out and the music scene is really good

Public Transport

Small enough city that you can get everywhere by walking... Public transport relies on buses which are moderately reliable. The introduction of the new Metrobus system has greatly improved efficiency and connectivity.

Shopping

Here’s another thing that Bristol has in abundance: shops! Pick out a vintage bargain at the stalls in St Nick’s market or in one of the shops on Park Street or Gloucester Road. The vast and modern Cabot Circus houses a vast array of high-street and designer stores and is designed to make shopping a pleasurable experience. In Bristol, you are spoilt for choice!

Cultural Guide

Theatre Venues

Fancy taking in a play? Head to the Bristol Old Vic, believed to be the longest continuously-running theatre venue in the English-speaking world. Or try the alternative Wardrobe Theatre in Old Market.

Art Venues

Ok, so this is not technically a gallery but take a wander round Bristol’s back streets with your eyes open and you will spot Banksy’s infamous street art, as well as loads of art by other street artists. Why not go on a walking tour to take it all in? Bristol has a thriving art scene so you’re spoilt for choice for galleries: check out Bristol Museum and Art Gallery, the Spike Island, Arnolfini or the Royal West of England Academy.

Museums

M Shed allows visitors to explore Bristol’s history through photos, film, stories and exhibits; it also has a steam train that runs along the harbour. Explore Bristol’s maritime and dock history aboard the SS Great Britain, the world’s first ocean liner, and climb the rigging for spectacular views of the harbour.

Its quite expensive but theres a variety of stores and houses available. You can really only find tesco express, sainsburys local and coops in the centre for groceries. Lots of brand stores but also lost of vintage, small business which always gives you something new to do. Lots of hills but everything is in walking distance which is helpful. Lots of clubs/bars to chose from, most of them play d&b but it depends on the day/club you go. Generally safe, although theres alot of dodgy areas. A few really nice parks expecially around stoke Bishop. Most of them do get quit crowded. read more

Bristol is an expensive city, but you can budget and not spend too much. 2nd &3rd year housing can be expensive, but as long as you do your research you can find nice cheap places. There’s so many varieties of food, your dietary requirements will be fulfilled and the food is always good! The nightlife is amazing, everyone’s so chill and having fun and it’s such a vibrant city that there’s always something to do. Shopping is good too, there’s Cabot Circus and (a bit further away) Cribbs Causeway. I’ve always been able to find everything that I’m looking for. The buses are really prompt. There’s the U1, which is free for 1st year students, which goes from city centre to stoke Bishop. There’s also many train stations and the tickets are about £2 read more

an expensive place to live with high rent prices, could do with a higher loan as you get in London as rent is expensive.

Bristol is infamous for it's living cost. Enough said on that, I think. Eating out is fantastic, huge range for all cultures and interests in food. Nights out, while I do not do them often/at all, I know from friends are fantastic. Shopping is also plentiful too, with Cabot, the Galleries, Broadmead, Park Street, Queens Road and Clifton. So much choice and variety! Public transport is plentiful but, in my experience, very unreliable and I try to avoid it when I can. Sometimes it is good though read more

For a muslim student like me halal food is not as widely offered as ai would prefer it to be. Moreover, Bristol’s nightlife ceases to exist cafes wise after 7pm, and all that is open is clubs and pubs which for a muslim like me not only is it not preferable to be in these places but also not drinking and being around people who drink is really not fun and completely awkward. I cannot stress enough how much of a social restriction and misery the no-drinking rule I live by has done to me. Nevertheless, I will always abide by it. read more

Great place to live. My halls were in the city centre (Waverley House, Riverside) so I was pretty much in the middle of it all. Loads of places to go for a night out and the music scene is really good. Cabot Circus is really close if you're in the city centre, and Broadmead has loads of shops. Big ASDA is a 15 min walk away and there's a Tesco Metro in the city centre too. Loads of independent cafe's and places to eat out, especially round the harbour area. read more

Price of shopping and eating out is manageable however it is not the price of the food etc that's is the problem, it is the problem of not receiving enough in grants/loans. Rent is expensive however not extortionate and transport is always quite busy however not expensive relatively. read more

Despite the main campus being situated outside of Bristol, UWE is a very Bristol-based university. Transport to and from the city is frequent and generally reliable, giving students more choice and freedom for inner-city shopping, nights out, and eating out. read more

Bristol's one of the best cities in the UK. Almost impossible to fault, coming as a londoner I can see that bristol is all the best parts of london in a smaller and friendlier space. Very trndy and although not cheap, variety, art, firnedliness and culture make up for it. read more

Expensive to live down south, definitely contentious to students with lower loans like myself, but job opportunities are generally good if you don’t mind working part time and the night life is incredible, bus’ go back up to campus and main area’s of Bristol until 4am or 24/7 often. read more

VERY EXPENSIVE ON A BASIC STUDENT LOAN. My family only just come into the bracket where you can only get the basic loan of £3,300 a year - I can't even cover my accommodation on it. Nights out are good and varied, the house scene is also really good. A little druggy, but you can easily avoid it if you want. Dinner out is always good fun, there are student deals in almost every place you go to. Buses can get kind of expensive, and around rush hour in the centre it's often quicker to walk anyway. read more

Bristol's such a lovely city to live! It's got so much variety - from your normal shopping centre (cabot circus) to the harbourside, park stree, clifton village, the downs, the suspension bridge, Gloucester road and Stokes croft. It's not too big either, but still plenty to see and do! It's quite expensive, but I guess it's in the south anyway, and it's still a lot cheaper than London and the SE. There's always a lot of things going on, and there's a lot of things targeted at students too :) There's plenty of bars and clubs to suit all tastes, and loads of restaurents and stuff too :) I'm from Birmingham and honestly it is sooo muh better! Despite being smaller, there's so much more to see and do compared to Birmingham, which with the exception of a couple of parts of the centre, is just a big, dirty city. Bristol is so much nicer and more exciting! read more
