You can search for housing in the city centre which is where we are based, but many of our staff live on the outskirts of Bristol where you will often get greater value for money. The public transport network is well regarded and cycle paths are also a popular way of getting to work.
From Victorian terraced houses in Southville, to the coloured homes of Totterdown you see on picture postcards, and new builds in the suburbs or flats on the harbour, wherever you choose to live in Bristol, you will be a short trip away to the bustling city or beautiful countryside.
For housing advice from our Local Authority visit the Bristol Housing website, or visit Rightmove or Zoopla. There are also affordable rental and shared ownership schemes, provided by the Knightstone Housing Association.

Bristol is also home of the University of Bristol – ranked in the world’s top 50 in the QS World University Rankings 2020 – and the University of the West of England is also well regarded and with many links to the Trust.
Bristol is a ‘cycling-friendly’ city, but there are also great bus and train links. The new metro-link bus service is a modern public transport system for the greater Bristol area, offering faster boarding and shorter journey times on modern, environmentally-friendly vehicles.
University Hospitals Bristol and Weston could not be easier to find, because our hospitals are right in the heart of the city. Courtesy buses run between our sites, and we are more than happy to offer help with bus passes and rail season tickets. We also provide facilities for bicycles too, but tend to limit parking spaces, and priority is given to those who need them the most.
Bristol also has some high-quality rail and motorway networks that link directly to London. Visit the national rail website.
If you want to go even further, the city is home to one of the country’s fastest growing international airports.
