Bristol Harbourside

A vibrant part of the city


Bristol’s bustling Harbourside is a vibrant part of the city and a true outdoor-lovers dream. Harbourside is a truly vibrant and unique part of Bristol with something to offer everyone and has become one of the most desirable places to live and visit in the city.

You can expect to see locals with an after-work pint in their hand, in the summer months, spill out onto cafe terraces or soak up the sunshine with their legs dangling over the quay wall. At the weekend families gravitate to Bristol Harbourside, to experience the free museums and galleries or watching the boats on the water, while the creative types hang out over brunch in one of the numerous cool cafes. 

Once a busy dock where sailors and merchants would trade goods and set sail for voyages of discovery, Bristol's Harbourside is now an attractive, modern development. The area is alive with the buzz of Sunday markets, waterside restaurants and bars and a whole host of sports and activities including yachting, paddle boarding, cycling and rowing.

Stroll around the water’s edge and you will find Millennium Square acting as a fantastic central hub, with its fountains and big screen as well as world-class attractions such as Brunel’s SS Great BritainWe The CuriousBristol Aquarium, see many of Bankey's street art and M Shed. Or you could just let the world pass you by whilst watching the boats head in or the swans swim past whilst dangling your feet over the edge with a cold glass of cider in hand.
