Beyond the Bustle: Discovering Old Market’s Must Visit Gems


Old Market has long been a celebrated part of Bristol. We have several serviced apartments in Old Market and we’re also launching an aparthotel in the Grade II listed Shepherd’s Hall in early 2024.

Located a short walk from Cabot Circus Shopping Centre, Broadmead, The Old City and Temple Meads Train Station, it’s in the heart of the West of Bristol. The area has for many years had strong connections to the LGBT community with most places being LGBTQI friendly should this be a requirement.

Here’s a summary of all the places you should have on your list if you’re planning to call Old Market ‘home’ for a few nights, weeks or months at one of our serviced apartments.
