List of places in Bristol


List of places in Bristol

The city of Bristol is divided up into many areas, which often overlap or have non-fixed borders, causing confusion to some people.

The main categories that these areas fall into are Parliamentary constituencies, council wards or neighbourhoods.

Parliamentary constituencies

Bristol is divided into four constituencies for the purpose of Parliamentary representation. These are:

Council wards

The city is split into 35 wards for local government. Like the parliamentary constituencies, their borders are rigidly defined.[1]

Neighbourhoods

Bristol also consists of neighbourhoods, the borders of which are not fixed as they are mainly informal regions. Some of these areas overlap, or are contained within others, while others have more than one name.

The following areas and towns make up the city of Bristol and its outskirts. It includes some adjoining areas of South Gloucestershire, marked SG, and North Somerset, marked NS.
