Clifton Down, built in the early 80s, is a 16 unit covered shopping centre anchored by Sainsbury's, Boots and WH Smith.
The first part of the National Cycle Network was built here, and Bristol is proud to be completely safely navigable on two wheels. The Bristol Ferry Boat provides both leisure and commuter services on the harbour.
The M4 and M5 motorways put Birmingham less that 2 hours away by car and central London just over 2 hours away.
Bristol has two mainline railway stations, Bristol Temple Meads and Bristol Parkway, both of which offer regular services around the UK, with direct service from both stations to London Paddington taking as little as 1 hour thirty minutes.
Bristol Bus Station is located in Marlborough Street, near the Broadmead shopping area. Bristol has over 50 bus and coach services operating in the City, providing links not just around the City but also to rail links, park and rides and connections to other major UK cities.
Bristol Airport is 13km to the south of the City and has scheduled flights to many UK and European cities.
