CITY HALF MARATHON WALK
CHECKPOINT E: GLOUCESTER ROAD
Near Gloucester Road:
Gloucester Road is located in North Bristol and runs through St Andrews, Bishopston and Horfield.
It is the longest road of independent shops in the UK and it’s one of our favourite places in Bristol. There is also a great choice of cafés, bars and restaurants for when a rest or catch up with a friends or family is needed.
Near the bottom end of Gloucester Road is Stokes Croft, which has gained a reputation as Bristol’s cultural and artistic hub and taken on an identity of its own. Most businesses in Stokes Croft are independent and emphasise keeping things local and inclusive. Stokes Croft’s artistic atmosphere is characterised by its unique residents and, of course, its graffiti.
