Don’t just go shopping, go to town!

Welcome to the Broadmead website – your guide to a unique experience shopping right in the heart of Bristol.  Broadmead is not just a shopping centre, it’s a city centre – and because the city is historic Bristol, the experience is unforgettable.

Here, a fascinating past combines beautifully with an exciting future. Among the things to see and do you’ll find over 300 stores, and a wide range of cafes, restaurants, clubs, pubs and other entertainments (see them here). And is your guide to what to see, where to go, how to get there, where to park – right down to a complete guide to what’s happening in and around Broadmead over the next few months.

So, next time you need anything, don’t just settle for a traditional shopping centre. Treat yourself to a much more enjoyable experience – and go to town instead!



The development, which is due for completion in Autumn 2008, will provide around one million sq ft of high quality retail and leisure uses, as well as apartments, offices and public spaces in the heart of Bristol.

  • Over 200 new homes integrated into the development, including 24 affordable homes
  • A state-of-the art car park with over 2600 spaces
  • Three new pedestrian streets
  • Buildings which reflect the city’s heritage and character
  • Dedicated public spaces

In addition, the historic buildings at Quakers Friars will become the centrepiece of a new European style piazza, featuring apartments, shops, restaurants and cafes.
