Bristol’s Harbourside is the UK’s second most interesting place to live

Bristol’s Harbourside has been declared by the Sunday Times to be the UK’s second most interesting place to live, work and play, in its annual Best Places to Live in the City feature.

They ask, ‘why would you want to live anywhere else but a city when you can have world-class culture, the finest food, glorious parks, lidos and cutting-edge cool?’ and point out that city living is no longer just about London. The Belfast suburb of Ballyhackamore tops the list, with Bristol’s Harbourside coming in a close second, ahead of cities such as Dundee, Edinburgh, Manchester and Oxford.

The Harbourside is described as the city’s ‘most interesting place to live, work and play’ and as ‘bursting with life’, with the Watershed commended for providing ‘an inspirational hit of culture’.

The Harbourside is home to a thriving business sector, including established names like Lloyds Bank and Hargreaves Lansdown alongside growing local ventures such as Inplay Golf.

The area has grown in cultural significance with We The Curious, the Architecture Centre and M-Shed museum joining established institutions like the Arnolfini in offering amazing experiences to residents and visitors.

The waterside area is also home to a selection of great places to eat, including Steak of the Art, Friska, the Harbourside Kiosk and The Cuban.

At Bristol City Centre BID we are working on improvements to the local area, including street cleansing and the removal of abandoned bikes.

We want to ensure that the Harbourside remains ‘Bristol’s waterside wonderland’.
