Shopping and Entertainment
Fishpond’s high street is home to some well-known supermarkets as well as local greengrocers and shops. There are also several pubs and restaurants in this area, such as the Golden Lion, the Cross Hands and the Warwick Arms. The Food Assembly is a unique offering, bringing traditional markets and modern shopping together – locals can order their goods online and then pick them up at the market. It’s a wonderfully social event that sets itself apart from the standard grocery shopping experience.
Fishponds has several local sports clubs, including bowling, cricket and badminton. For sports enthusiasts wanting to attend sporting events, Bristol has several local teams including the Bristol City and Bristol Rovers football clubs, as well as the Bristol Bears rugby team.
Festivals and Events
One of the most prominent events in Fishponds is Fishfest, a community and arts festival that brings local performers, suppliers and creators to the area each year. There’s also the B-Bees Craft and Farmers Market held here each month at the Old Library that’s the perfect place to meet with locals and pick up handmade jewellery, clothes and plants.
Fishponds offers easy access to a host of landmarks and attractions in the Bristol region, from the Clifton Observatory to Clevedon Pier on the coast.

Properties in Fishponds tend to be Victorian in style, with Victorian terraces and semi-detached properties the most common. In recent years, there have also been newer developments cropping up in and around this area, with new build properties that are perfectly suited to families and professionals seeking contemporary accommodation. These types of properties are common along Fishponds Road, particularly for those seeking modern flats, while the likes of Mayfield Park offer vast semi-detached Victorian homes that are better suited to families. There’s a small student population living in this area too, due to the Glenside campus of the University of the West of England, making it a popular choice with students who don’t want to be in the heart of Bristol.
