Area Guide for Filton Bristol

Area Guide for Filton Bristol

Filton is four miles from Bristol city centre via Gloucester Road and is located on the northern outskirts of Bristol (A38) close to the M4/M5 interchange, extending between the Bristol and South Gloucestershire counties where most homes date back to the 1930s. Many of the townhouses and apartments that used to be council housing have been replaced in the last decade. Although it’s a family neighbourhood, UWE (University of West England) students who desire quick access to the city also like it there. You can find lots of information about student living and courses at UWE HERE.

Let’s explore…..

The Home of Concord

Filton has an aerospace connection dating back to the establishment of the Bristol Aeroplane Company. Said aerospace companies include BAE Systems, Airbus, GKN, Rolls-Royce and MBDA, all located around the former Aerodrome. Concorde Alpha Foxtrot is the star attraction at Aerospace Bristol, the aviation museum on the site of the former airfield (which was the home of the assembly line for the British-built Concorde).

Re: Usman Ayub – Lets Rent Letting & Management Prior to meeting Usman, the experience in trying to rent property in Bristol for over 6 months was demoralising. A Let's Rent representative (Seb) contacted me by phone to say they'd managed to alter a few appointments for the viewing & I would be me by Usman. He was punctual & informative throughout prior to our entrance to the building. He informed me of the layout, security & access which therefore covered all the H&S criteria in case there was an issue. Once the viewing was over, Usman assured me that he will send over the documents via email for me to complete, which was actioned without delay. Throughout the legal itinerary & required information, he kept me informed which enabled me to clear up some issues the automated system rejected unbeknownst to me. Usman is a valid member of the team and the functionality of this business benefits with him as a valid member.
