Bishopston named as a top place to live

April 29 2018

THE Sunday Times has included Bishopston in its 2018 list of top places to live in the South West.

Jobs, life expectancy, schools, broadband speed, culture, community spirit, shops and more were taken into account when compiling the prestigious annual list. This year, our suburb appeared in fourth place, only falling short to Frome in Somerset in first place, Bodmin Moor in Cornwall in second place and Bridport in Dorset in third place.

Unfortunately, after being named overall Best Place to Live in Britain in 2017, Bristol failed to keep its crown for a second year running and lost out to York in North Yorkshire.
