Here is situated just outside the centre of Bristol and only 10 miles from Bath. Located on the A4, HERE is just a short walk from Bristol Temple Meads train station and fast rail links to Bath and on to London and readily accessible from the City Centre and the M32 motorway.
470 Bath Road
Right next door, Arnos Court Park is a Victorian greenspace on a hillside with fine views and wide, open grassy lawns. The park is open and accessible 24 hours a day, with entrances on neighbouring Bath Road. Steeper parts of the park make for an energising walk with fantastic views of the City as reward.
To other side of HERE is Arnos Vale cemetery and the prospect of another brain stimulating (or stress busting) stroll through peaceful woodland. If industrial heritage is more your thing then cross Bath Road, down a side street and discover the network of cycle paths that follow the canal and riverways into the city centre.
Cafes, Restaurants & Bars
You’ll never go hungry in this part of Bristol. The growth of the City’s food and drink culture has encouraged plenty of bars and sandwich shops around HERE.
Of course, with Friska right HERE you needn’t go anywhere for a light bite and decent coffee, but a 5-minute walk east takes you to BocaBar at the Paintworks for a fine range of local beers, great pizzas and cool surroundings. 5 minutes west up Sandy Park Road and you’ll discover a traditional local pub, sandwich shops and bakeries.
Cheap eats and big screen sports can be found at the Black Castle over the road, but it’s only a mile to the traditional and gastropubs of Totterdown or the City Centre and every conceivable eatery from vegan bistro to gentlemen’s club, and American diner to floating Cordon Bleu.
Places of interest

Bristol is the city of bridges, balloons, boats, bikes, Brunel and Banksy. With year-round festivals, award-winning cycle tracks, gastronomy of every flavour in rejuvenated warehouses and behind secret doorways, stunning cityscapes and awe-inspiring street art, you’re never short of things to do and place to be.
