Clifton Village has a wealth of Georgian and Victorian Architecture
Clifton’s topography has produced a residential townscape of grand contrasts and memorable settings highlighting a unique combination of Georgian and Victorian Architecture, most of which retains its original individuality and charm.
Looking around Clifton you can see imposing formal classical terraces, grand residential mansions along the Promenade (although many have now been converted into offices), mews developments and Victorian rubble villas.
It is no surprise that the poet John Betjeman described Clifton as “the handsomest suburb of Europe”
“….. and then up in Clifton the elegant terraces .. and that marvellous Avon Gorge and the Suspension Bridge”
Of particular note:-
