Living in Bristol
Bristol is a lively city with a good network of buses, plenty of parks and open spaces, great shops, interesting art galleries and museums, lots of theatres and live music venues, a beautiful cathedral and more good restaurants than anyone on a student budget will ever be able to get through!
Given Bristol’s proximity to the Welsh border you can imagine that we get our fair share of rainy days; however, when the rain stops you’ll find we’re wonderfully close to Bath, Wells, the Somerset and Devon coasts, the Wye Valley, the Forest of Dean, Oxford and the Cotswolds and, of course, the well-watered lushness of south Wales itself. You’ll also find Bristol to be a very family-friendly city, with the We the Curious Science Centre, Bristol Aquarium, Bristol Zoo, free museums like the MShed and Bristol Museum and Art Gallery (your children will love the fossils and rock collection), and the annual hot-air balloon fiesta and kite festival.
Trinity is situated in a quiet residential area, with easy access to the city centre but nicely removed from its busyness by being set within the nine acres of its grounds. We’re also very close to the Clifton Downs, a large grassy and wooded area ideal for walking or running, from which you can see the Avon Gorge and the famed architecture of the Clifton Suspension Bridge.
