Our neighbourhoods: A guide to Clifton

Stretching from the Your Apartment office on the Clifton Triangle to the famous suspension bridge, Clifton is one of the most popular Bristol neighbourhoods for short stays in Bristol. Home to attractions like Bristol zoo and plenty of independent shops, fantastic bars and local restaurants, those choosing to stay in Clifton won’t run out of things to do. If you’re staying elsewhere in the city, jump on a bus and venture up the steep Park Street to discover one of the most picturesque sides of the city (see our Bristol travel blog for tips on travelling around the city).


Take in the view

One of the most famous sites of Bristol has to be the Clifton Suspension Bridge. Designed by Isambard Kingdom Brunel and opened in 1864, the bridge crosses the river Avon connecting Clifton with the nearby Leigh Woods. Sit nearby with a picnic or walk across the bridge for amazing views of the Avon Gorge and across Bristol. For a better view of the bridge, climb to the top of the tower at Clifton Observatory, if you’re lucky you may even catch a hot air balloon or two flying overhead.

Getting outside

If you’re looking to get outside, take in the spectacular scenery at the Downs, a huge area of parkland just outside of Clifton village. In the summer The Downs are host to some of Bristol’s best festivals and music events, including The Downs Festival, Foodies festival and Bristol Pride, so be sure to check out what’s on before you visit. When you’ve finished, take a walk to the nearby Bristol Zoo to visit the penguins, gorillas and much more. Your zoo ticket will include entry to the Bristol Zoo gardens with over 12 acres of landscaped gardens and exotic species of plants and trees.


At the heart of Clifton is Clifton Village, where you’ll find most of the places to eat alongside lots of independent shops and boutiques. If you’re looking for some retail therapy, start in the Clifton Arcade, a Victorian shopping arcade lined with everything from gifts, jewellery and hand-crafted clothing. Spend the afternoon browsing the antique and vintage shops in the village to pick up one-of-a-kind pieces, including art, furniture and much more.

Where to eat

When stopping for something to eat, you won’t be disappointed with Clifton’s diverse range of restaurants and bars, from fine dining at No.4 Clifton Village to an instagrammable brunch at East Village café or afternoon tea at The Ivy. Follow it with drinks at the Coronation Tap, the oldest and only cider house in Bristol, or the Nettle and Rye for a game of shuffleboard to end a great day in Clifton.
