Bristol Area Guide - Easton


Easton is a vibrant community with an urban and bohemian atmosphere. It is often overlooked as an area to visit but it really should be on your list as it has some amazing attractions, eateries, and culture.


Housing

Rightmove crowned Easton the property hotspot of the last ten years. In 2021 it was the highest selling area (in terms of quantity not price) in the UK. The current asking price in Easton for a terrace property is £345,397, £178,624 for a flat and a semi-detached home is £333,667. This is nearly £30,000 less than the average home sold in Bristol. Overall the prices were up 5% from 2021 and a staggering 21% up from 2018. The housing is predominantly Victorian but some larger homes, new builds and flat conversions can be found too.



Things to do

There is so much to do in Easton and an abundance of culture to experience. There is the Bristol Sweet Mart an independently owned supermarket on St Marks Road open since 1978 its family-friendly service is one of the best in the city.


Este Kitchen serves locally sourced food “made with love”. Bikkle Island serves delicious Caribbean and Jamaican food, it is cash only, don't get caught out as it's too good to miss! The Garden of Easton is also a must visit. Possibly one of the most instagrammable places in Easton and the food is absolutely delightful.


If you fancy a drink, The Greenbank pub was the winner of Bristol Life Gastro pub of the year. They do some great evenings there too from life drawing, comedy nights, and ‘Spanglish’ a Spanish - English language exchange.


There are also some lovely green spaces like Eastville Park, Netham Park, and Felix Road Adventure Playground!
