Westbury-on-Trym, a village within a City

Rombourne Blog

Rombourne’s Trym Lodge Business Centre is one of our offices spaces in Bristol that offers a village lifestyle close to Bristol’s City Centre.

Tracing its roots back to the Medieval ages, Westbury-on-Trym is older than Bristol itself. Nowadays the suburb is a lively community of over 10,000 residents. It’s situated 4 miles north of Bristol city centre and 3 miles from the M5, and is easily accessible by both car and bus. Unusually for the Bristol area, Westbury-on-Trym is fortunate in that it has two free car parks, giving a combined total of around 140 parking spaces.​

Westbury village is one of the few areas in Bristol that has the feel of a ‘genuine’ village, having both charm and character. The River Trym runs through it, and much of the suburb is a conservation area. The village atmosphere is enhanced by numerous colourful floral displays in tubs and hanging baskets, and Westbury is proud to have won the Bristol in Bloom award for ‘Best Shopping Area’ for the past nine years.

Today it’s a bustling area with village life centred around its four main shopping roads – High Street, Canford Lane, Stoke Lane and Westbury Hill.

The village is well served by some 200 shops and businesses – there are five major banks, a main Post Office, a library, and also a large number of independent shops such as butchers, bakers, greengrocers, hardware suppliers, craft and fashion outlets.

Westbury is also great for eating out, with restaurants ranging from English, Italian, Indian and Thai through to Casamia – the only Michelin-starred establishment in Bristol. Westbury also has a high concentration of good gastro pubs – indeed, there are five all within walking distance of one another!

The affable village atmosphere and the attentive, personal service of the local stores combine to make Westbury-on-Trym a great place to shop, do business, or just relax. Not surprisingly, Westbury is often described as ’the village within the city’.
