I haven't lived there for eight years now. It's still dead good, right?
Still expecting the honeymoon period to stop but nope, it's still brilliant.
this thread looks a bit sad sitting underneath new york
One of my favourite things then was that it wasn't the finished article. Since then so much has changed and mostly been improved, yet it still feels like it has miles to go - like it is always going to keep getting better and better. It's awesome.
My only problem with it is it is definitely too cool for me to live in these days. Which is annoying.
Anyone want to buy a flat?
Are fucking terrible.
And the busses are ridiculously expensive.
That is all I know/have to say about Bristol
you can pretty much walk everywhere
in the centre & environs
traffic can still be a mare though & the buses are pants
theyve restructured the fares though
dont think i'd live anywhere else mind
love it here
Thing about Bristol
I've been there probably about 15 times, although I'd definitely admit I don't actually know it very well as most of those were for work or visiting people with kids, it's always just seemed like loads of really busy massive roads.
Every route in bar one is shit. Unless you drive over the suspension bridge, into Clifton, you basically arrive in some sort of urban, derelict hell.
Once you know where it all is, it's really easy, but I feel for someone driving in down the M32, or coming into Temple Meads, with dreams of Clifton Village in their heads.
it has kept getting better. Loads of stuff going on all over the place, each area seems to have its own character, a ridiculous amount of clubs and pubs. Low on the dickead factor (compared to Cardiff where I lived before anyway). It is expensive and public transport is poor, but if you live anywhere vaguely central everything is walkable or bikeable anyway. They have actually improved the buses a bit, £1.50 a single in the "inner zone".
