Bristol

181 Reviews by Students #63 out of 422 University locations

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.

Public transport can be annoying in city centre but the majority of the time I haven’t had any issues. The night live in Bristol is amazing however living costs can be quite expensive due to the amount of students in Bristol. That being said, there are loads of cafes and food places that are cheap. 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

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...

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
