This very popular, affluent area of North Bristol is favourited by families, professionals and retirees alike.
Not only for its suburban position, just 2 miles from the city centre, and its proximity to the recreational parkland of The Downs and Old Quarry Park, but also its offering of amenities scattered up and down its treasured High Street. There are plenty of tempting cafes, pubs and restaurants to keep one busy and well-fed, but also a charming array of boutiques, shops and bakeries as well as a cinema, library and various sports clubs. A lovely attraction worthy of a special mention is Henleaze Lake; a flooded woodland quarry that for the last 100 years has been the home of a prestigious swimming club and an idyllic place to relax and enjoy the outdoors. Architectural styles vary throughout the area, with a concentration of sprawling Edwardian family homes towards the south, and a noticeable shift towards 1920s, 1930s and 1950s houses as one moves further north.
