Bristol is both a ceremonial county and a city in the South West of England. It was granted county status in 1373 and was one of the country's principal cities until the rise of Liverpool, Birmingham and Manchester following the industrial revolution. The economy and prosperity of the county is closely tied with the Port of Bristol and in recent times has been due to the growing importance of creative media as well as the growth of the electronic and aerospace industries. The locals are referred to as Bristolians and are over a million strong. The area is known for its limestone reserves and the rivers of Avon and Frome that cut through the clays to create the well-known Bristolian hills. It is one of the country's warmest counties, but also sees snowfall from November till April. Find your new home in Bristol today.
