Gloucester Road is another lively area with a large student population and numerous independent shops, pubs, bars, cafes and restaurants. The area tends to be less expensive and is very popular with University of Bristol as well as University of the West of England students.
Overall it is a bit more 'urban' than other more residential areas of Bristol. It is about a 30 minutes walk to the University but there are good transport links.
What they say
Some people think parts of Gloucester Road are dangerous but it isn’t that bad, if you act sensibly. The rents are cheaper and you're bang in the middle of the drum 'n' bass scene.
