Bristol Junior Centre

Based at the University of the West of England

Bristol buzzes with life! The largest city in south-west England (pop. 450,000), it is known not only for famous landmarks like the Clifton Suspension Bridge and Brunel’s ship SS Great Britain on the historic waterfront, but also for its vibrant arts scene that gives the city a distinctive identity.

Our centre, based 6km from the city centre, offers facilities of a very high standard on a pleasant, modern campus. Accommodation is in an attractive complex with spacious en-suite rooms, and within a short walk you’ll find shops, a bank, cafes and an excellent sports centre with squash courts, a climbing wall and more. There are also very good transport links to the buzz of the city centre!

*The age range is 12-17. However, we may occasionally accept a younger or older student from the same school year as someone else in the group.
