Clifton

Recommended
The elegant Bristol suburb of Clifton was developed on the heights overlooking the Avon Gorge in the early 1790s, though the rush of building was halted by a wave of bankruptcies. Building picked up again around 1810 and a more assured Grecian style was adopted, resulting in its delightful crescents, small squares and terraces, generously interspersed with greenery.
