Bristol Area Guide - Redland

Updated: Aug 1

Redland spreads from Whiteladies Road down to Gloucester Road and includes the buzzing Chandos Road. It's undoubtedly one of the city's more affluent areas and is increasingly popular with families.


Housing

Redland has two sides: the buzzing lively student areas with mostly flats as accommodation and the lovely Victorian terraces and Flats that house many families and professionals. The average terrace property sells for £714,207, a flat is around £374,971 and a semi-detached home fetches a hefty £923,224. Despite the hefty price tag Redland's popularity is continuing to increase, especially with families.



Things to do

There are many reasons why Redland is so popular, there's easy access to local parks and The Downs, you can find pockets of brilliant independent restaurants, bakeries, pubs and so much more, but the compelling reason we find is the sense of community and ‘village-like’ feel. There is also the popular Chandos Road in the heart of Redland which is a hub of delicious restaurants and great bars and hosts the annual Chandos Road festival.


The Shakespear is a lovely pub on Lower Redland Road and is renowned for its Sunday Lunch. For a pasty or some freshly baked bread I highly recommend Redland Bakery (try their carrot cake it is delicious!) or if you like Mexican food, Casa Mexicana is my absolute favourite, it is the best Mexican restaurant I have been to in Bristol (Viva La Mexicana in Bedminster is a close second!)





Education

Redland is popular with families and this is partly due to its excellent and much coveted primary and secondary schools. There are five outstanding primary schools nearby, and Redland Green School, an outstanding secondary school, is in the heart of the area. With plenty of private schools also nearby you can see why it's an attractive area for families.
