A genteel tree lined suburb with a feeling of space and calm. Some of Bristol’s most spacious and expensive houses set in generous plots can be found in this area. Victorian in style up on The Downs and 1930’s and newer the further down the hill you go. Many of the houses were built in the parkland grounds of Old Sneed Park which explains the trees. Old Sneyd Park mansion is now sadly gone along with some of the other original mansions in the area. Knocked down in the 20th century as the cost of their upkeep became too high. In their place are now modern apartment blocks which are mostly set in generous grounds with some of them boasting leisure centres and swimming pool complexes. Sneyd Park is perhaps the most peaceful suburb in North West Bristol.
