Bristol Design is located in central Bristol, England, 14 Perry Rd, BS1 5BG. If you happen to come and visit we are up the road from Bristol’s bus station, up from Bristol Royal Infirmary, just down from the University of Bristol. About 1.2 mile from the end of the M32. Our phone number if you get lost: 0117 929 1740
With Bristol Council putting in the new segregated cycle lanes on Perry Rd along with the turning restrictions onto and out of adjacent St Michael’s Hill access is a bit more difficult. I have contacted the local paper (Bristol Post) and they have written a very good article about the problems with a few photos of the shop and of me. If your interested its at: Bristol Post Article
By car the easiest way to find us if arriving in Bristol along the M32 go right to the very end, stay right, on to Bond St dual carriageway to large roundabout (sign-posted Bus Station, Clifton, Bristol Royal Infirmary). Go straight, second turning off, past the bus station then hospital and we are just past the lights past the hospital on the right.
We are about 1.2 miles from end of the M32. Parking directly opposite was expensive and now removed for a cycle lane.
If you are arriving from the West it might be along Hotwells Rd, up Jacob’s Wells Rd, around the triangle and Queens Rd, to Park Row which changes into Perry Rd. If you get to the hospital its time to turn around.
Trenchard Street multistory is possibly least expensive parking, going up St Michael’s Hill or Horefield Road is less expensive than Lower Park Row or Colston St.
Caution: More driving chaos; St Michael’s Hill has no left turn coming along Perry Rd or right turn into it.
From Perry Rd have to go down past the hospitals to the Bear Pit roundabout and back up to turn right for St Michael’s Hill. If coming down St Michael’s Hill can only turn left for the trip in front of the hospitals to the Bear Pit roundabout.
This and the cycle lanes add extra driving for many, more pollution, more traffic jams.
Coach to main bus station gives a few minute walk. Out the bus exit side, turn right to top of road then left and straight along just past all the hospital complex.
Train, Rail to Temple Meads station. From the station it can be about a 30 minute walk to the shop along Victoria Street, then Broad St and onto the bottom of Christmas Steps. Its about 1 mile.
No perfect bus from the train station (this is Bristol) but the best is probably the Nos. 8 to City Centre stop (stop C9). The No. 8 bus stop is on the incoming road on the right as you come out of the station building.
The shortlist route after the bus is: walk back the way the bus came a tiny way, cross over and back to Christmas Steps. Up the steps, cross cross Colston St, up the steps further and we are about opposite those steps.
Or for fewer steps walk in the direction the bus was going, cross over and walk up Colston St.
Any bus going to City Centre gets you within a 4 to 5 minute walk to the shop. If you are going to the hospital the hospital free bus get you very near us.
Flying into Bristol Airport and airport bus to the bus station, then the walk as per coach. Helicopter the only nearby landing is on the hospital roof for air ambulance and we don’t recommend needing it.
