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.
Google map or Sat Nav Post Code is BS1 5BG
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, 73 or 72. This is in June 2022, it can change.
As you look out of the station entrance the No. 8 bus stop (T8) is near the top of the Station Approach road (on the right). It runs about every 10 minutes. The closest stop to us is The Centre, C9, Rupert Street. Returning on the No. 8 bus the stop is Centre, C11, Colston Avenue.
Alternatives buses are the 73 or 72. Both leave from a little further down the Station Approach road (stop T6). The 73 runs about every 20 minutes and more direct with few stops to centre, C12 Colston Ave. Return is from stop C9 City Centre, Rupart Street.
The 72 only runs hourly, stop at C11, Colston ave. Return from C9 City Centre, Rupart Street.
Walking to us from City Centre (stop C9, C11 or C12), walk north away from the centre, to Christmas Steps. Up the steps, cross the road, Colston St, up the steps further and we are about opposite those steps. If you walk toward the centre can walk up Colston St.
Expensive but can even take the hourly hop-on hop-off Bristol Tour bus (£15) which runs once an hour to City Centre then go on for other Bristol sightseeing.
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 same walk as from Coach station. We are about 4 minute walk on right side.
Helicopter the only nearby landing is on the hospital roof for air ambulance and we don’t recommend needing it.
