The Sunday Times said Bristol was one of the UK’s ‘most creative and independent’ cities
If you’re itching to move to Bristol after the Sunday Times named it as one of the best places to live in the south west of England, here’s some inspiration for you.
With its leafy outdoor spaces, stunning period properties and thriving art scene, the city has long been a vibrant and sought-after place to live.
The city has grown 13% per cent since 2020, with many flocking here from London for a calmer life and to take advantage of the house prices, which stand at an average of around £365,000.
The Sunday Times hailed the city as the UK’s most ‘independent and creative’, with a ‘rebellious streak’ never far below the surface.
“It’s leading the pack on sustainability, but business is booming too,” the article read.
