Bristol - one of Europe’s best destinations for a visit10 January 2019
Bristol is, in a word, unique.
Some refer to it as a miniature London, and they’re right… so long as you take the best bits of the capital city, squeeze them together, and put the resulting amalgam all in one place.
Bristol has long been at the heart of the South West - first as a major port destination and later as a hub of culture, sport and technology.
Last year, Bristol’s harbourside was named as one of the best places to live in the UK - one of “the city’s most interesting place(s) to live, work and play.” This year, Bristol itself was ranked among the most amazing city breaks in the world, sharing the accolade with Venice, Disneyland Paris, and Rome.

“We’re sneaking a staycation onto this list, as Bristol has simply so much lined up for 2019. There’s Europe’s first inland surfing lake, The Wave, set to launch in the autumn, and suburban conservation park Wild Place will introduce brown bears (adding to the existing population of grey wolves and lynx) this summer.
The Royal Photographic Society is moving into town, and there will doubtless be some celebrations for the anniversaries of famous local creations Wallace & Gromit (turning 30) and Concorde (50 years). As for stylish crash pads, there’s a slew of hot property nearby, including Eight in Bath and the latest outpost from Artist Residence. No wonder it was named “Rising Star” at the National Geographic Traveller Awards.”
So with excellent housing, new builds on the cards, cultural icons staying in (and moving to) the city, it’s really no surprise that the business side of things is booming too.
The 2018 Tech Nation report pegged Bristol as the UK’s #1 digital tech powerhouse in terms of productivity. Ultimately, it comes down to a local focus with global backing. According to the report, “Investment is the buzzword in this deep-rooted digital tech cluster.”
So why is the Bristol office worth a visit? The accolades speak for themselves - we’re sat in the UK’s best location for work and play hands down!
