Bristol

Global insights, local results

Bristol is now the UK’s largest creative, digital and tech hub outside London – and the city is increasingly seen as an affordable alternative to the capital. At Cushman & Wakefield’s Bristol office, our specialists can help you respond to the South West Region’s growing opportunities with expert real estate advice tailored to your business.

A city of innovation

Over the past decade, Bristol has attracted an influx of foreign direct investment due to its rapidly growing international reputation. The city is home to a variety of thriving companies – from homegrown firms like Graphcore, Hargreaves Lansdown, OVO Energy and Ultrahaptics to international businesses such as Dyson, Lloyds Banking Group, EDF and Imperial Brands. Bristol also has the largest aerospace cluster in the country, with major facilities occupied by Rolls Royce, Airbus, BAE Systems, GKN and the National Composite Centre – helping the UK’s aerospace industry remain the second largest in the world.

A key driver of this success has been Bristol’s ability to access and retain talent due to the quality and scale of its graduate population. The city has two significant universities, the University of Bristol and the University of the West of England; the former institution is currently the fastest-growing university in the Russell Group. With a student population of over 60,000, the city additionally has the highest graduate retention rate of any UK regional city.

Bristol is also a great place to live. Transport connections allow short train journey times to London, while nearby Bristol Airport offers a range of convenient national and international flights. Thanks to its outstanding cultural offer of music, arts and sporting events, Bristol was named Europe's trendiest city by the National Geographic Traveller in its UK Cool List 2018, while The Times named it the best city to live in 2014 and 2017. Winner of a global Smart City Award in 2018, it is the only city in the UK to have achieved this recognition.
