Near College Green

  • Situated at the bottom of Park Street, College Green is made up of beautiful open space, Bristol Catherdral and City Hall (Bristol City Council).

  • Nearby, halfway up Park Street, at the end of Great George Street is Brandon Hill. This is another lovely open space that has Cabot Tower in. It is free to enter the tower, and you have to climb the 110 steps to the top to get a 360-degree view of Bristol. You won't regret it!  

  • Park Street is another buzzing student hub with many lovely coffee and food places including Pinkmans which do specialty Doughnuts and Pizza's as well as Friska, one of our amazing sponsors!
