Lovely city with lots to do and see, plenty of different choices depending on the type of vibe your into, lots of places to eat and drink and for a night out, often on the pricey side however

Lovely friendly city with great food for vegans! Almost every single place I've visited has had options for all dietary requirements. So vibrant and always something to do here.

Bristol is so viberant and has so much to offer. It's got all the high street big brands for shopping yet also had an independent shopping area and great charity shops and helps to support small businesses. The nightlife is insane and there's something on every night.

Bristol is a great city for sustainability. It is encouraged here that you cycle, buy a reusable water bottle / coffee cup. It's also full of loads of independent shops which is great. Fantastic food and good bars and pubs.

It's a great city to be a student. The food is amazing but some meals and nights out can be a bit pricey. I recommend a walk by the harbour. Its a very friendly place to live.

I love bristol, the nightlife is banging and the city itself is very beautiful an interesting. There are plenty of restaurants to choose from, the ones next to the river are lovely. Good places to go out include the black swan, lakota and blue mountain. Good range of hotels and hostels. Definitely worth visiting the vintage shops such as loot vintage. All round just a really nice, interesting city with lots to do.

Amazing nights out, whatever your music taste, including cheap offers! Huge array of restaurants and shops. Then a surprising and beautiful contrast to the city vibe, the huge expands of greenery and panoramic views at the Suspension Bridge, parks and woodlands. All within easy access due to the cheap buses.

Bristol is a vibrant city which is extremely appealing to the younger crowd. This is not to say that there isn't something there that won't be appealing to everyone, however it is a student city in my opinion. I have lived there for 3 years now and have enjoyed every moment. The Cabot circus shopping mall is great, with abundances of shops to go into. The people on Bristol are extremely friendly with a well diverse range of people living there.

Amazing city with loads to do, particularly good for young people with the style of shops and array of nightclubs / event locations. The fact that friends come down to visit from other unis across the country is testament to this.

A vibrant city that has something for everyone. A great hub of culture with a plethora of music venues, art galleries and independent cinemas. Also a great variety of places to go for night outs to cater for anyone's taste. The city focuses on independent and sustainable business, with a healthy lifestyle encouraged.

Bristol is a great city for all ages. If you're a student and not sure which uni to go to, Bristol has 2 great unis that have great facilities and the halls at UWE are amazing. The city it's self has a great atmosphere in the day and the night. In the day there is loads to do between the huge amount of places to eat that serve amazing food and are reasonably priced to going to the Aquarium or the zoo. The shopping malls in Bristol are also great they have almost every shop that you can think of so you have plenty of choice. In the evening, Bristols nightlife is on the same level as Cardiff, vibrant and full of life as well as cheap drinks. What more could you ask for.

Bristol is a fun city with lots to explore from the graffiti art in Stokes Croft to the harbour side restaurants with an amazing view of the harbour. There are a variety of food from around the world located in every corner of Bristol. There are plenty of night out choices in the city, depending on the music you like. Overall, a great student friendly city with a real sense of community feel.

I am a postgrad student at the University of Bristol. Right after arriving here, I absolutely fell in love with this city. This city is full of greenery. It is fun to walk around the Cabot circus and try different cuisines. The nightlife in Bristol is in one word, Great!! The transportation is good too. All in all, this is a perfect place to live in.

Bristol is a great city, despite its reputation for being really rainy the weather it not that bad! There are many clubs to go to depending on what you like, there are the big ones like Pryzm. SWX, Motion and Thekla but there are smaller ones on the Triangle as well. There are so many places to eat out whether it's in Cabot, Clifton, Harbouside etc. Cabot circus is such an amazing place for shopping! You have everything from Nee Look to Harvey Nichols. Would 100% recommend. Transport isn't amazing but it's not awful either, there are a few buses that tend to run late but so far not to the point where it's a massive inconvenience!
