Location and transport information

The University of Bristol holds the key to the door of some of the most beautiful buildings and modern facilities right in the heart of the city. Perfectly placed, Bristol is a gateway to the South West, providing easy access to Bath, Cardiff and the beautiful surrounding countryside. 

One of the things many of the students love about the city is how easy it is to get around. You can also travel to the university by the frequent buses and trains, plus a direct coach from London Heathrow Airport to Bristol.
