Life in Bristol & Beyond
Bristol benefits text
North Bristol NHS Trust is based in the Northern outskirts of Bristol. We’re proud to be part of this vibrant, busy city and its wealth of opportunities. As the 8th largest city in the UK, it is excitingly diverse and has a wide choice of shops, bars and restaurants as well as an impressive cultural scene and a number of restful green spaces and parks.
As well as a thriving city centre, Bristol is surrounded by beautiful countryside. It is a fantastic place to live if you love being in nature. We are temptingly near to the Cotswolds and Mendips, and within easy reach of the coast.
Although Bristol has everything you could ever need, it is impressively connected. Jet off on holiday from Bristol airport, head into London in little more than an hour (68 minutes to be exact) or enjoy a few nights away in the South West or Wales – both of which are enviously close to Bristol.

Bristol's Beautiful Views
Much of the northern part of the city of Bristol is actually part of South Gloucestershire. North Bristol is well served by public transport with bus routes from the city centre and there is also a mainline rail station at Bristol Parkway.
The Mall at Cribbs Causeway and surrounding retail parks are an out-of-town shopping destination with over 150 stores including many high street stores such as John Lewis and Marks & Spencer.
There are also many family restaurants, a multiplex cinema, ten pin bowling and a gym.
North Bristol is also home to Aerospace Bristol, home to Concorde Alpha Foxtrot.
You can also explore the 400 acres parklands and woodlands of Blaise Castle House Museum and Estate which includes a cafe and children's adventure playground.
