Georgina, who recently moved into Redland, praised the variety of "independent shops, independent cafes and useful chains like the big Sainsbury's."

She added: "It's a very nice mix of students and families and things which gives it a good quiet vibe. I think it's a nice separate area from the rest of Bristol that still feels united."
