REDLAND has been named one of the best urban places to live in the UK – according to The Sunday Times.

The area, which was referred to as Clifton's "more realistic neighbour", was hand-picked for its selection of cafes, restaurants and being in close proximity to good schools and transport links.

It has been reported that the affluent area's highlights include Chandos Road, Michelin starred restaurant Wilks and Redland Green School.

Redland is home to around 11,000 people, and encompasses popular independent shopping destination Gloucester Road and much-loved St Andrews Park.

Also voted in the top 10 best urban places to live was nearby Stokes Croft, which The Sunday Times referred to as a “scruffy, artsy enclave”.

Home to the famous Banksy mural, “The Mild Mild West”, the stretch of road was commended for its street art, and its variety of bars and eating establishments.
