Welcome from Bristol Loves

Hello! Welcome to our blog all about the fabulous independent shops, cafes, bars and everything in between in and around Bristol. We are so excited to start exploring this beautiful city we now call home and share our experiences along the way with you, all the while keeping it local.

Bristol is renowned for its abundance of independent businesses especially with our own Gloucester Road being the longest road of independent shops in Europe. Over 70% of the shops, cafes, restaurants etc in Bristol are independent which is fantastic, but without the resources of large franchises it can be hard for independent stores to compete. Our aim is to help these businesses thrive by sharing them with you.

We’ll be updating this blog regularly as well as sharing news on our social media platforms, so be sure to like/share/follow!
