Moving to Portishead

If you are thinking of moving to Portishead, congratulations!

This is one of the nicest town’s in the West Country, with a community spirit that is hard matched.

Portishead has excellent schools, a wealth of amenities ranging from medical centres and dental practices to holistic therapy clinics, a library, thriving youth centre and a vast amount of community and charitable groups that support the town, as well as the wider community.

Over the past few years Portishead has been one of the fastest growing towns in Europe; development is slowing down now, but there are still plans for a little more growth with regards to both homes and business premises.

Portishead is situated within North Somerset on the Bristol Channel coast. It is ten miles from the vibrant City of Bristol, approximately 25 miles from the ancient City of Bath and Cardiff, the capital city of Wales, lies just across the channel.

Located around three miles from junction 19 of the M5 motorway and nine miles from the M4 interchange, Portishead is only a short journey to motorway links to destinations across the country.

Bristol International Airport, which provides scheduled and charter flights to worldwide destinations, is within 10 miles of Portishead and commercial shipping operates out of Royal Portbury Dock on the outskirts of the town. Portishead dock has seen the conversion of a traditional deep-water dock in to a stunning new marina that offers 280 sheltered and secure pontoon berths. Plans are also underway to re-open the Portishead to Bristol railway line, a project currently scheduled for completion scheduled for completion in the not too distant future.

The seaside town of Weston-super-Mare, is the administrative centre of North Somerset, which lies two junctions south along the motorway.

When moving to Portishead, the town has a wealth of expertise to help your transition. From estate agents and removal firms to business advisors, accountants and life coaches, friendly local councillors and welcoming ministers to members of the local community who will be happy to tell you more about the town, one thing is for sure, you will always get a warm welcome.
