Bishopston and St. Andrews
Bishopston and St. Andrews are home to a sizeable student population and a vast array of independent shops, pubs and restaurants. There are a lot of larger houses and flats at reasonable rents. Very much of a residential area, especially for families.
Walking distance to the University is 25 - 40 minutes and in the case of St Andrews there are rather steep hills coming and going. St Andrews Park is never far away and is a popular place for students on sunny days. There is great access to Gloucester Road and its array of shops, bars cafe’s etc.
What they say
Bishopston is great if you want a big flat at a cheaper rent than Clifton. Flats tend to be really nice and well furnished.
