Bristol is one of the most popular student cities. Reasons for this vary from an excellent nightlife to being the largest city in the south west with a population heading towards half a million, nearly 50,000 of whom are students. Alternatively, it could be thanks to Bristol's most famous son, the late, great engineer Isambard Kingdom Brunel or could it be the enterprising pirates Bartholomew Roberts and Blackbeard? Either way Bristol is one of those student cities that you tend to hear consistently good things about. Will the ratings reflect this?
