Twenty-first century Bedminster is already shrugging off its traditional working class South Bristol roots and becoming a thriving hub for city-dwellers. Close to Temple Meads station with easy access to the now-upgraded line to London, it is also next to the soon to be completed Bristol University Temple Quarter Enterprise Campus.
Already-gentrified Southville sits just to the north, and to the south you’ll find Upper Knowle with its green parks and family feel. Although parts of the area need some TLC, including the main shopping area of East Street, investment is soon to arrive in the form of large housing and commercial developments.
It’s a short hop and a skip into the center of Bristol from Bedminster with plenty of bus routes and cycle paths. It also has its own mainline train station which provides easy access to Temple Meads, Cardiff and the coast.
Residential property in Bedminster is predominantly mid to late 19th Century, mainly laid out in terraces. There are a large number of 1930’s housing from a later expansion due to the need for affordable housing at that time which now represent great value and are quite spacious by current standards. New modern apartments and converted flats are also starting to appear.
Served by the ever-popular Victoria Park, as well as Windmill Hill City Farm, Bedminster could well be a canny choice for the young professional or family seeking something slightly more urban and characterful than new housing estates on the city outskirts might offer. It could also be where the smart money goes in the 2020s.
