Located on the cusp of the central business district and within walking distance of the city, Islington Road is in the heart of Southville. Nearby North Street is a hive of activity with its variety of restaurants, coffee-shops, independent grocers and retail shops. The area was originally built up around the Wills Tobacco factory in the 19th Century. The tobacco factory now comprises Restaurant, Cafe/ Bar with Theatre and is also host to a Sunday market outside. Southville primary school is well regarded and extremely popular with residents. Given the proximity to the central business district, many families choose to live within the area and decide to commute via footbridges to the city. Rail services are available nearby at Bristol Temple Meads (1.3 miles) which offers a main line line to London. Travel further afield is available from Bristol Airport.
