With the River Frome running along the Southern Edge of Frenchay’s border, the Frome Valley Walkway is an enjoyable experience for both locals and visitors, with breath-taking views of the river itself and the surrounding wildlife that resides there. Equally beautiful is Frenchay Moor – an open moorland owned by the National Trust that’s particularly popular with dogwalkers. Nestled in the very centre of Frenchay is Frenchay Common, which is home to a church and a village pub – ideal for walkers to quench their thirst after an evening stroll.
Shopping and Entertainment
Frenchay is host to a great selection of restaurants and cafes, from traditional pub food at the White Lion, to classic Indian dishes at Raj Mahal – locals have plenty of eateries to indulge in. Local village shops are available for your everyday essentials, plus the infamous Bristol Shopping Quarter just a 10-minute drive away for some retail therapy. Bristol’s Cabot Circus is also within easy reach of the suburb, where you’ll find a variety of entertainment including independent stores, bars, a cinema and even an escape room.
The Frenchay Cricket Club is one of Bristol’s oldest clubs, having been founded in 1846. The club runs both a youth team and a ladies softball team, as well as a disability team known as the Frenchay Falcons. Being in such close proximity to the University of the West of England- UWE Bristol, the residents of Frenchay are spoilt for choice in terms of sporting activities, with the campus being home to a gym, an astro pitch, squash courts and an exercise studio.

Frenchay has a great variety of events throughout the year to cater to a range of different interests and passions, including the annual Frenchay Flower Show. With such easy and convenient access into the city centre, residents can attend all the celebrations that Bristol has to offer, such as the Foodies Festival, Bristol Harbour Festival and the city’s Folk Festival.
Being steeped in such interesting history, the Frenchay Village Museum is a popular tourist attraction. Relaying information about Frenchay and its past and current residents, the museum is host to some great activities and events including an annual vintage vehicle day, an exhibition room and collection and artefact displays.
Frenchay has several schools within its surroundings, including Frenchay Primary School, Frome Vale Academy and Steiner Academy Bristol. Bristol Business School is also located within the area, as is the University of the West of England’s Frenchay Campus – a public research university.
