Why study English in Bristol

Find out why this destination may be the right choice for you!

Bristol may have a hill around every corner, yet this didn’t stop hundreds and thousands of people creating the UK’s first Cycling City.

In this creative city, street art is everywhere and its been completely transformed over recent years.

You can’t think of Bristol without thinking of this famous landmark – the Clifton Suspension Bridge, and the water and green spaces that surround this city make you think of what it may have been like hundreds of years ago.

It has been voted as the European Green Capital in 2015, yet water plays an integral part, and it’s worth viewing the life there too, with boats and ferries and bridges that swing to allow them to pass.

Studying English in Bristol is worth it even just for the pastries and coffees you’ll wake up to before your lessons! Visit Hart’s Bakery, and finish it off with a coffee from Small Street Espresso!
